This weekend, May 3, is the opening day for 11th season of the Market Square Farmers’ Market! I’ll be there with the coffee wagon in the usual spot up near the stage with all the current selections ready to serve and bags of beans to take home. I’ll be looking forward to seeing everybody on what is forecast to be a very lovely day.
Also, iced coffee! The Three Bears Coffee Cold Brew has become a huge hit at the Farmers’ Market. It’s also currently available at Just Ripe and starting soon you’ll be able to enjoy it in a cocktail at the Public House(!).
In other news, Just Ripe now carries the Honduras COMSA coffee in bulk. This coffee is a medium roast with a mild brightness and milk chocolate and honey sweetness. The COMSA growers have made great strides recently in combating La Roya, which is devastating many Central American coffee farms. Their approach has been more holistic and organic, and so far more effective.

Three Bears Coffee has benefited so much from great word-of-mouth community support. Thanks to everybody who enjoys Three Bears and remember to tell all your friends!
See you at the Farmers’ Market!
