Coming Soon!

View from the front window.


Shari and Reid have worked their fingers to the bone in preparation for the opening of their new coffee house. Yesterday they had a "soft opening" by invitation. This gave us an opportunity to preview what is destined to be an outstanding addition to the Marion business community, and it gave the proprietors an opportunity to study and refine procedures.













The Boultbees have been roasting and vending organic coffees from all over the world for the past four years. Now they are prepared to provide an outstanding experience to the coffee aficionado. In addition to the coffee selections, Shari and Reid will be offering a menu that includes soups, sandwiches and homemade muffins and cookies. This may eventually be expanded to include other items. The Internet is wifi accessible on the premises.

Watch for the Grand Opening of Midwest Coffee Roasting Company about the first of June!

Eat more muffins. They're healthified, and your taste buds will thank you!

We have a nice place like that about 30 minutes from here. My favorite is a medium roast Costa Rican coffee. It reminds me so much of the coffee I drank when we lived in San José.

I think that's a place I would like to hang out. It's not close enough for me to do that, but I hope to go there sometime. Congrats to the owners for this outstanding addition to the community of Marion.

You live in Marion! Did you know that we went to Taylor? I wish we could afford to get back there more often.

Chuck, it is interesting how coffees of different origins differ in aroma and taste.

Vee, we hope to take you there sometime.

Grace, thank you on their behalf; I'm sure they appreciate all the good wishes they can accumulate!

Michelle, they are doing it right, and we believe they will do well.

Shark, actually we don't live in Marion, but some of the kids do. Yes, I knew you were Taylor Trojans of yore. When you do get "back," let us know.

Shark, the barista pictured in the story is a senior at Taylor, graduates in ten days or so.

Lin said...

Oh, I wish we had one of those here! We just have the typical chains--Ugh. Wish them the best of luck!

Vanilla- I just might do that! Wish we could come down more often, but frivolous trips just don't happen any more. I really only have one faculty friend left at TU, well, except for Jay and Janie Kessler, but I really wish we could go down to see a play even once a year. Sigh... I can't afford to go to a play here once a year, let alone 6 hours away.

Lin, we pass along your good wishes. I think you would really enjoy the place.

Shark, you have the memories of the good times; and there will be more good times to come!
