The Roaring Mouse Coffee Roasters of Hart
This cooler weather is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee or tea! Either way you like it, we have you covered! Every week we have 4-6 varieties of freshly roasted coffee, and 5+ varieties of loose leaf tea. We also have some amazing fair-trade organic chocolate barks, and chocolate covered coffee beans! We can only bring a few varieties of our chocolates to the market each week, so be sure to check out our list on Facebook and pre-order if there is something specific you want.
Featured coffee of the week! Check our facebook page for details on our coffee of the week.
We will also plan to bring our Guatemala FTO, Papua New Guinea FTO, Colombia FTO, and Sumatra Decaf.
As always, we sell our coffee by the ounce so you can get the perfect amount to use while it is the freshest. We also have gift certificates; the perfect gift for a coffee lover!
Come taste the fresh difference! Coffee is seasonal, so expect some variety. We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh every week.
Our list of Teas and Chocolates has gotten too long to include here, so check out our Facebook page for the full list of what we have available.
Email us to order in advance, and we will have it bagged up and ready for you. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get there, and speed up your shopping if you are in a hurry!

The beans are back! We continue to harvest our certified organic beans, and will have the following freshly-harvested varieties along this week:
Black Calypso – Plump, with creamy texture. Slightly nutty, mellow taste, something like a russet potato.
Black Valentine – Taste like kidney beans, great for salads, soups and dips.
Hidatsa Red – Similar to a kidney bean but with a slightly nutty taste, these beans are good in salads, chilis, soups or served with grains.
Jacob’s Cattle Gold – Hold their shape and soak up other flavors well. Great for soups, stews, salads and baked beans.
Marrow – Plump, soft white beans that soak up the flavors of whatever you cook them with. Great soup beans.
October – Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Pinto – Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking. Also have a limited supply of split pintos for $1/pound.
Yellow Indian Women – These buttery beans retain their shape well, and are less starchy than some other beans. Good all purpose bean.
Zebra – Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean.
Leftover from last year, and discounted:
Black Turtle – (last year’s crop) Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture. Discounted $1 a pound while supplies last.
Hutterite Soup – (last year’s crop) Comfort food, cook fast, creamy soup, baby food. Discounted $2 a pound while supplies last.

In addition, we offer Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses in the following flavors:
NEW! Smoked Gouda – I’ll have samples along. Smoky and rich, this cheese does not disappoint!
NEW! Aged Edam – I’ll have samples along. Two years old, this skim milk cheese is wonderful!
Country Dill – A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged at least a year and has a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
Gouda – A traditional handmade cheese in keeping with West Michigan’s Dutch culture.
Lamont Cheddar – A rare, natural rind English cheese, named for the Grand River’s first settlement near our farm.
Leyden – Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged Dutch cheese.

See you Saturday!

Maple Moon Farm of Shelby
Our farm is based on the idea of growing food for our neighbors to contribute to a healthy community. It is our customers that make us a community farm (because otherwise we’re really just those folks who are growing way too much food). It is important to us to honor and acknowledge those who support us in all our gorwing endevours. We want to highlight some of these special people with our Customer of the Month. For October 2015, that person is Margaret Bart. Margaret has supported our farm for years, sharing with us her love of food. She tells us food stories of her youth, shares recipes with us, and is always looking for the smallest produce-just the right size for one person (we now save these for her). Like most of you that know her, we love Margaret, and are so appreciative of her and the ways she supports our farm. Like all future Customers of the Month, Margaret will receive 10% off all purchases this month.
We have lots of exciting produce to offer you this week!
