Leave a comment


This Sunday, we are putting on our Third Annual Harvest Festival! This year is full of exciting activities, covering every aspect of our favorite season.

Activities include a coffee cupping, apple pie and pumpkin pie baking contest, bread baking contest, a seasonal apple tasting, live music, and activities for the kids. We’ll also have special baked goodies in the shop.

We’re eager to see what you can bake!

Here’s the schedule and details for entering the contest:

9:30 am – Blue Bottle Coffee Cupping – Join us for a coffee cupping of three unique Single Origin Blue Bottle offerings. Anyone can join, coffee novice, or seasoned barista. This fully caffeinated event is lead by our Lead Barista, Michelle Arowe.

10:30 am – Pie Competition Judging – To join the pie baking contest, please bring in a homemade pumpkin pie, or apple pie and fill out the entry form in the store by 9:30 am on Sunday. The entry fee is $5, which will be used to help fund prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners! Pie judging is done by a panel of local pie experts at 10:30 am, and it will be lead by our Pastry Team Leader, Heidi “Piedi” Hochstrasser.

11:30 am – Bread Competition Judging – To join the bread baking contest, please bring us a loaf of home-baked bread by 11 am. For this contest, we encourage organic bread made from scratch, but anything goes! The judging will be done by a blind taste panel , so please bring your loaf in a bag, or container to prevent anyone from recognizing your loaf during judging. The bread judging will be at 11:30 am, and the contest will be run by our own Head of Bread, Chris Hickok.

Stop by and celebrate the harvest with us!
