It’s back to school time and the weather seems to already be thinking about Labor Day. It’s been cloudy and cool here as we mark the end of summer and anticipate the arrival of many new things with the change of season.

Over at our cafe, PT’s at College Hill, we’ve been busy greeting the new university students watching the progress of the road construction outside of our windows. A full three months after the city first began tearing up the pavement on 17th Street, the first layers of pavement are being put down!


Just in time to celebrate this momentous occasion, manager Forrest Wright is ushering in a new menu on the 19th. Some popular items will remain, but be on the look out for your favorite sandwich starting Monday!


And, how about that mural, huh? Someone get some coffee in John Brown’s Chemex before something crazy happens.


For all of our readers and customers who don’t live near us, we’ve got news for you too. We are currently holding our End of Summer Sale to make room for all of the new items and coffees we are bringing in. You should check it out.


Speaking of new coffees, they’re starting to roll in pretty quickly.

Our Geisha’s, Cerro Azul AAA and Auromar Estate’s Ironman, are already on their last roast, so you’ll need to be fast if you want to get this edition of the Wonders of Geisha box.


Monday, August 19th brings the return of Elida Estate Natural, picked especially for us this year, and we think it’s just fantastic. Honey, brandy, and of course, strawberries. Beautiful. Also look for our new washed Ethiopian, Deri Kochoha. We’re really excited about this one, it reminds us of raspberry lemonade! Also be on the lookout for the return of Sumatra Blue Batak Peaberry and Los Delirios, our popular organic from Nicaragua.

Stay tuned in September for Fincas Las Mercedes, Los Planes, and El Socorro!
