I don’t know about you-all, but we have been having winter!

Winter is here! Time to curl up by the fire with a hot cup of coffee!
Stop by for a cup of the freshest coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, to sip on as you shop! We roast our coffee fresh every week so you can get it at the peak of its flavor! We also have a huge variety of chocolate bars and barks, and several varieties of loose-leaf tea.
Great news! We are now licensed in The Starting Block in Hart, and using our new roaster! Our coffee is now air-roasted for an even better flavor and a slightly more even roast! We will be offering each coffee in 12 oz and 6 oz bags with one-way valves which allow the coffee to remain fresh longer.

Wild Earth Chocolates of Muskegon
We have a few new flavors we will be playing with through the new year using essential oils infused into thin textured creamy maple sugar sweetened chocolate. Be sure and come by and sample some.
Orange with a hint of clove has a deep orange note with a nice warm kick of clove and a soft lingering chocolate finish. Anise offers a sweet licorice pop with subtle hints of fennel and tarragon, swirling in velvety chocolate throughout. Peppermint, strong, cool, hot and always a favorite with deep dark chocolate, especially at this time of year.
I have also added peppermint flavored Heart Chocolate, so now we have plain or peppermint in the new sweeter 75% dark chocolate sweetened with D-ribose, for a big boost of calm energy right to your cells. D-ribose is a sweet supplement that is used for heart, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia patients to help them regain their cellular energy, so they can begin to move again. We will be offering:
Heart Chocolate Peppermint
Heart Chocolate Chocolate Thins
Chocolate Enrobed Ginger Anise Thins
Orange SpiceThins
Peppermint Thins
Cinnamon Thins
Buckwheaties (Kale, Sprouted Buckwheat, Sprouted Sunflower, Pumpkin Seed, and Hemp Seed) Cacao Beans, Cacao Nibs, Cacao Powder &  Cacao Butter
