Today I found myself cruising down the Parkway with some good tunes teasing my eardrums, the sun shining warm on my face, and the sweet aroma of about 600 pounds of unroasted coffee beans in my backseat tickling my nostrils.
We got coffee. A lot of it. And it tested my car's suspension.
It's a bit odd to think of a time like this as only the beginning of something bigger, as we've never had to figure out what to do with so much bulk stock before. In the last few days the Boxwood staff has been busy slurping up spoonfuls of new coffees and mixing profiles together in efforts to create exciting new blends to offer all of you beautiful people. With some help from our awesome friends and suppliers at Royal Coffee New York, Boxwood is proud to announce that we now have our own signature blends that will be replacing our current supply of our House blend and cold brew blend! These new coffees were carefully constructed to be a little bit of something familiar and a lot of something amazingly delicious - seriously, just try a sip and you'll love them. Next week you can look forward to seeing new coffees in your cup and on our shelves, we're so excited to share them with everyone and we revere your feedback. Let us know what you think!
In the fashion of new and exciting things, we are also exceptionally pleased to announce Boxwood's new Live Music Series! Every Friday night, our shop will be the home of some serious jams and groovy tunes complimentary of local performers with serious talent. This week's performance will be provided by Michial Miller, an incredibly talented solo artist who rocks the guitar and keys - check out his work on Soundcloud to get a taste of what's to come!
While we continue to run our pretty little roaster (I think I'm going to start calling her Ruby, what do you think?) around the clock to get our store well-prepped to for boatloads of new and delicious coffee, we've got some more tricks up our sleeve. Keep an eye out on our menu and our counter in the coming days for new drinks and offerings that will make you go, "oohhhhh... that's good."
Hint: They're caffeinated.
Hayden Kaye is our Master Roaster and head of the Say Interesting Stuff department.
