Who we are......by Kandi

Who we are...... by Kandi

It was my desire to have a coffee roasting business in Ligonier Valley for many years. I discovered a transportable roaster and knew that “now was the time”. My partner, Dave was crazy enough to agree to the idea and “so it began”. Our business was established in June, 2010

We ordered the roaster, made with all U.S.A. parts, from a small company out west, traveling nine days round trip to pick it up. It was quite the adventure--- as I’m sure the business will be too.

Our intention is to offer quality coffee that is fresh roasted. This makes all the difference in taste, as our increasing number of coffee “fans” can attest to. To maintain peak freshness, the beans are roasted after they are ordered.

Since our first event, Back to the Garden Market, “just down the road” from us, we’ve brewed and sold coffee at many festivals and markets. Along with purchasing direct from us….our coffee is sold at various other businesses from Rector to Pittsburgh with more in the works. A list is posted. Other businesses have expressed interest and we are receiving a lot of phone and e-mail orders. The positive response is very encouraging.

We hope that once you try our coffee you’ll taste the difference too and become a valued customer and friend as well!!

What’s New for 2014 and Looking Back

Like everyone, we’ve been busy. Now that things have calmed down, there’s more time to attempt to grow the business. Have a ton of ideas, but not always the time and/or $ to see them come to fruition.

Hoping 2014 will be more productive & FUN too!
Wish List:

  • We have some more potential businesses in the works to carry our coffee (and one or two that just didn’t “resonate” with us, a term our friend Granny Earth says now and then. LOL) 
  • We’re trying to get the kinks worked out to offer OLR CUPS to be compatible with the Keurig.
  • Want to add to the items we offer  
  • Commercial Kitchen of some type necessary to do some of those ideas we have
  • Get the Latte Friends membership started
  • and and and...….. 

Looking back through the year there have been some positive changes.

  • We’re almost done with the roastery building, but not sure what to do with a home based business license. lol
  • Expanded our setup at Ligonier Country Market by adding a second tent. We wanted to make it less crowded for our Market friends and us.
  • Added some new clients:

Planet Goodness LLC in N. Vandergrift has added our coffee to their store.

 Latrobe Art Center’s Neighborhood Cafe has been brewing and retailing our coffee for months now.

Giant Eagle in Ligonier has our shelf of coffee in the Bakery Section, as of November.

  • Have 2 customers receiving a “coffee selection of the month” for a year as gifts
  • Some customers set up an ongoing schedule to ship to them
  • Our coffee traveled to Scotland again, Nantucket, Alaska + it’s regular trip to Florida every month or so
  • Painted my first card with coffee to accompany gifts from a friend/customer to another friend/customer. Been wanting to try my hand at that for a looong time. It was a simple design but turned out okay I think. Cathy, Jen + Buddha  acted like they liked it at least. lol
  • I know I’m forgetting things but… this is good for now. 
To all, we wish you a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year!
