It was another busy weekend for Bean & Leaf with music on both Friday and Saturday nights, the Fiddleheads farmer's market on Saturday, and morning tastings at two different stores on Saturday and Sunday.
One of my favorite things about this job is pouring a cup of coffee for someone who has never tasted our beans and watching their eyes light up when the brew hits their buds. They are always surprised and appreciative of the quality of their cup.
Today Bean & Leaf spread west. Down the Merritt then up Rt 7 to Green Rocks Inn where I had the pleasure of meeting with Barbara and Kim who are the proprietors of this eco-bed n' breakfast. We originally crossed paths at GreenDrinks last Wednesday and they expressed interest in serving organic coffee and tea to their guests. I was thrilled to be able to help them out.
Their place is incredible. It is a gorgeous house on a wooded hill and the interior is both spacious and warm, as well as impeccably decorated. This is the kind of place where you go to spend a quiet weekend with your spouse and end up walking out with brand friends in the other guests, and the people that own the place. It has that warm, friendly, welcoming energy, and best of all, everything they do is eco-friendly, organic and sustainable. We are very excited that they will be serving our beans and leaves and we are definitely looking forward to a relaxing weekend in their warm, stylish rooms. Plus, we'll get to hang out with Barbara and Kim and that is a definite bonus.
I do forsee a few problems, though. Once there my wife will a) not want to leave, b) insist that we take on all of their green practices and procedures for our house a c) completely redecorate.
I'm willing to risk it though so that she can relax for a bit and I don't have to do the dishes.
