Bring On 2013

Another year has snuck up on me again. I am ambivalent to the change in calendar years. On one hand I don’t particularly like to see the passage of time because it just means that I am getting older but on the other hand I have to admit that I am glad to see 2012 over and am looking forward to the New Year.

A great way to start off is to have my coffee placed in another store. Bee Real is a local enterprise which opened up just before Christmas in the Ingleside mall. The owner, Helen, is a bee’s wax candle maker and her store’s focus is on locally produced quality products. My coffee fits right in with Helen’s candles and Angela Youngs’ “Ground Soap”. After all it is top shelf stuff.

I have some coffee changes to report for 2013 as well. I am no longer going to carry the Papua New Guinea coffee.  However I am now stocking a new coffee from Peru, Selva Antiguo “Old Trees”. It is a delicious clean Peruvian coffee with a medium body, a hint of acid, a very smooth finish and a slight note of Molasses. Now I have to come up with a label design that says Peru.

I don’t have any coffee related events scheduled for the near future but I’m sure something will present itself in the next month or so. In the meantime I will continue to fill my customer’s orders and keep my distributor’s shelves stocked.

So Happy New Year everyone! Let’s hope the world will be a better place in the coming year and remember, life is too short to drink bad coffee.
