It has been an exciting and crazy year for Three Bears Coffee Company!
This past year’s Market Square Farmer’s Market was the best ever for us. We got the chance to serve great coffee to more great people than ever before through the little coffee caravan and we worked hard just to keep up with the demand. It’s been amazing to see how my little coffee roasting business has grown. I’ve always focused on roasting the best coffees from the best growers I could source and I’ve trusted that people would let others know that they enjoy what I do. It’s great to see how a small community-minded business like mine can grow through attention to quality, good work, and word-of-mouth advertising. Thanks everybody!
I’ve also gotten some great new business from the downtown restaurant community. Cafe 4 on Market Square has been serving Three Bears Coffee exclusively in their espresso drinks and as their house coffee since late summer and it has been a big hit with their customers. The Peter Kern Library also uses Three Bears for their espresso drinks and Holly’s 135 has Three Bears available by the cup. Of course you can still get bags of beans at Just Ripe in the Daylight Building and Three Rivers Market on Central Avenue.
Also there’s a great new place to get Three Bears Coffee: the new roastery and retail location at 1120 Sevier Avenue in South Knoxville! There is still some construction going on, but come on down to get the broadest and freshest selection of coffees available. We’ve been open since early November and while there are still some developments coming along, we’re ready to serve the coffee loving public. I’m looking forward to being able to engage with my customers and to be able to show folks how the coffee roasting operation works. Our winter hours will be from 8am til 5pm Monday through Friday and 8am til 4pm on Saturday. Come by and visit!
Thanks again for all of the support. I’m so happy to be able to do something I love and to provide the greater Knoxville community with some of the best coffees around. It’s an honor and a pleasure! Enjoy!
