This past Saturday, our Analog Coffee Bar, welcomed our friends from across the river, Deeper Roots Coffee, to take over our bar. This means they bring their best coffees and show off their signature beverages to our guests. They are our competitors, technically but, we think the more opportunities to bring us together in the same space to show each other what we're doing is something special.

For our brew method we chose to use a Chemex as she is the most elegant.. - Read More
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.. - Read More

They also plan to run a story about us in the paper, but I guess it got pushed off. We will post a link when we here that it was published. In other news, the band and choir at MVCA just used our coffee as a fundraiser for their upcoming spring trip and they raised.. - Read More
