February's Coffee of the Month is La Minita, a delightful medium roast from the beautiful farm in Tarrazu, Costa Rica.
"Hacienda La Minita was founded on the principle that coffee is much more than a commodity and should be enjoyed as luxuriously as an exquisite glass of wine or a gourmet meal."
Mike Sheldrake opened Polly’s Gourmet Coffee in 1976 at the end of Second Street in Belmont Shore. Forty-four years later, he is still roasting coffee beans every morning in the same location. Mike bought the coffee part of the business from Polly’s Pies in 1989 after having worked there since high school. He wanted to learn the business from roots to roasting, and the result was Polly’s Gourmet Coffee.
We all know this year had been challenging to say the least, and as a small business owner I would personally like to say "thank you" to every person who purchased a cup of coffee, pound of beans, and more. Without you we couldn't have made it through and we continue to survive because of your support.
