My wife has done a fantastic job carving two lino cut prints to be used in our special Valentines Day Packaging. There are two designs, one featuring two love birds perched on top of a mug with a heart in the center and the other of a cute owl on top of a mug with the phrase "I love you more than coffee." I suppose it pays to have an artist for a wife when it comes to this sort of thing!
Want Your Coffee Wrapped? If you would like to have your Valentines Day bags of coffee wrapped with this special packaging, simply let us know when you place your order in the next few weeks. The cost is $2 extra, but the response from your Valentine could be priceless.
Coffee Tasting @ Gigi's Cupcakes
This past Saturday we spent the afternoon giving away free coffee at Gigi's Cupcakes in Kenwood. It is hard to have a bad time when you are hanging out in cupcake heaven all afternoon, surrounded by flavors like Chocolate Salted Caramel, Srawberry Shortcake and Midnight Magic. Needless to say, Emily and I enjoyed ourselves immensely, and there is still half of a cheescake cupcake in our fridge for dessert tonight!
Owner Amy Jones has done a wonderful job bringing this franchise to Cincinnati, and we are very honored to have them serving our coffee. If you love cupcakes, get over the Gigi's and indulge.
Pick Up Your Coffee Order at Gigi's. Now, if you live or work near Kenwood, we are now offering Gigi's as a place where you can pick up pre-ordered whole bean Carabello Coffee. Just place your order with me or in our online store and let me know you want to pick up at Gigi's. Next time we deliver there we will include your coffee!
Friends from Alliance World Coffee Visit
This past week some friends from Alliance World Coffee in Muncie, IN made a day trip to Cincinnati and stopped by for a visit at Velocity Bike & Bean. We had a great time getting to hear about Olivia Auell's desire to apply her Taylor University chemistry degree in the field of coffee as well as catch up on each other's businesses and ministries.
Alliance World Coffee is a very interesting fusion of coffee roasting business and ministry training center for the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination. It is always good to get around people who have a heart for coffee in this way.
