To celebrate, we’re going to celebrate all week long! Get a ticket with each purchase to add to the bowl-of- tickets. We’ll draw at the end of each day for that day’s prize and you can pick it up later. Simple enough. Here’s the schedule of fun we’ve got planned out….

We promise we’ll never compromise your trust in us when you give us your email address. You can unsubscribe at anytime moving forward but you’ll want to register for the grand prize. Share this as often as you want with friends. Anyone can register at any time but we’ll cut the registration off on Sunday, June 8th at 6pm. Later on Sunday night we’ll announce the winner. Good luck!

King of Pops @ Queen Bee

The story goes like this… We had been planning to bring King of Pops (KOP) into the store for a while but just hadn’t done it with how crazy things have been since we opened. (Has it only been four months? Has in already been four months? We’ve almost gotten to the point where we don’t nearly die each week from the craziness of it all.)

Anyway, it happened… QUICK! We had been emailing KOP and last Thursday morning they said, “how about today?” We were ready but hadn’t really thought out the announcement yet so on our Facebook page we simply asked McDonough what they’d like us to add to the coffee shop “from the city”?  Hoping to just to get some discussion started. We got lots of responses like Whole Foods, Tin Lizzy’s, Trader Joes, etc. We tried to explain we couldn’t put a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s inside our shop but the dam was broken. So many wanted so many things! It was so fun to watch! Interestingly enough over half of them said KOP?!?!? Little did anyone know that it was already on the way. Well, that afternoon they brought the freezer and our initial order. We made the announcement Thursday morning and we have been selling KOP like crazy since then. In just over 50 hours, we sold out of three flavors. That was WAY more than we ever anticipated! We had to go pick up more KOP from Atlanta on Saturday morning. Thank you to all our customers! We are very excited to be able to bring something to McDonough that you really really wanted! Another day and another fun thing about opening the shop in downtown McDonough!

If we had known bringing KOP to Queen Bee Coffee Company would bring joy to so many faces, we would have done it long ago. It is so great to see kids of all ages enjoying the pops inside and outside around the tables just laughing and enjoying life together. Slow down and enjoy life for a few moments today… if it’s with a cup of coffee or a King of Pop, we’ll be waiting!

URGENT: French Press ALERT

I have been asked several times lately about the best place to get a french press. Well, that varies. BUT, today (3/15) and until they run out the best place is at BuyDig.com. With the coupon code, AWAKE20, you can get an extra 20% off of the purchase. This means you can snag a decent Bodum french press for under $16 to your door! Are there better presses out there? (Meaning that if you’re careless, the glass is replaceable or that the mesh filter-screen is more resistant to damage?) Yes, there are but not for $16. They do have the Chambord model and I believe it does have replaceable parts if you feel you are a habitual “breaker of things”.

If you’ve never tried a french press, here’s a great place to get one and give it a whirl. Easy fixing and easy cleanup. At the link below, there are also some hot water kettles as well. Yeah, there are some grinders, DON’T buy one of those blade grinders. Go to the School link for information about grinders.
