We typically use this space to write about tea, but Local Coffee + Tea has created three new coffees we are very proud of and want to share with you. Also, Glynis is on holiday in the UK (see post from Harrogate Yorkshire), and so she is not around to protect this sanctuary of tea from coffee contamination. If you are a tea purist, please do not read any further.
We love Sarasota and have been searching for coffees that might capture the essence of this very special place. We have found three and they make up our SRQ Collection of Coffees. We have been brewing all three coffees at the Selby House Cafe at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and our Siesta Key shop with great results. The collection includes Bee Ridge Blend, Siesta Decaf and Fruitville Flavored Coffee. Here is a bit more about each of our new coffees…
Bee Ridge Blend – Named after one of the main thoroughfares in Sarasota, Bee Ridge is a bold, breakfast style coffee with a bright, natural sweetness. A very drinkable coffee and especially delicious with a drop of honey. Medium city roast.
Siesta Decaf – Siesta Decaf is a decaffeinated Colombian coffee and will not interfere with those afternoon naps in a hammock on Siesta Key. Medium acidity for a rich, balanced and smooth taste.
Fruitville Flavored – A perfect blend of fruit and nut flavors for a slightly sweet treat. Named after an important street in Sarasota running from near the bay to the bush, and was formerly lined with citrus orchards.
All three coffees are locally roasted by Java Dawg Coffee and available every Saturday at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market from the Java Dawg Coffee bus as well as their shop at 4615 Tamiami Trail in Sarasota.
