It’s so crazy!

I have wanted to sit and tell you about all the incredible things going on in our lives right now with this business. (I’d tell you about all the stuff not about this business if you’d like but that might be too much too soon!) We have so many people come up and offer their hands in support that it has become almost impossible to wrap our minds around it all. Just last night, or rather, yesterday afternoon, we had an “open house” for some family and friends who have helped out with various stages of this venture so far. It was simply our way to say, “Let us serve these special people first before anyone else.” We tried to thank everyone but pretty much just stood there and mumbled and cried for a few minutes and some discernable words were understood but not much else. Honestly, it was mostly understandable but there was a lot of crying going on. We have been so blessed by so many people so far! It has been amazing to see people come into our lives that we never knew before and offer to help in ways that were SO needed. Thank you all!

Today is surreal. It is the day before we open something we have dreamed about for years. We should be scared to death – at least I think we should be – but we aren’t. We should be as nervous as a long-tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs – but we aren’t. It is so crazy! We had an owner of a very successful Henry County business tell us last weekend, “You don’t look nervous or tired enough to be about to open a business.” (or something loosely interpreted like that) Trust us, we ARE tired but we are super excited about what this business can mean for so many people. Thank you for making this a reality. We are so very thankful we get to do this.

So I am posting and Alicia is working on getting ready for tomorrow….. when she finds out, I’ll be in trouble.  Don’t tell her, please. 🙂

My phone just went off again with a “please bring me this too” text.

Loyalty Cards Are Here!

Check this out – FREE COFFEE!

We are giving you FREE coffee when you buy some! (As our daughter would say, “Whoop! Whoop!”) We used to offer a small discount for buying 2 pounds at a time but that began to not make sense. We’d rather you buy coffee FRESH and not have it sitting on your shelf just because we offered you a small discount. Instead, we asked ourselves, “What if we just offered a Loyalty Card?” Then the idea came to be what you see here. We let you buy it as you need your coffee and we will still reward you for your purchases. We don’t penalize you by only offering a multiple pound purchase – we reward you for buying over and over again.

Buy 10 pounds and get 1 pound FREE!!!

On the back of the card, we also ask for a small bit of information like your name, your birth DATE (not your birth year because we’re getting old now) so we can know when to send you a small birthday freebie, your email (to send you the freebie) as well as your favorite coffee(s) list.

This introduction of the Loyalty Card is a super sweet deal for you – a FREE ONE POUND bag of coffee when you buy what you’re already buying anyway!

Thanks for drinking our coffee because when you do, you are helping us to provide wells and water to the thirsty in Central America.
