Rosie is getting pretty busy these days… she has found her groove with the Costa Rican and Guatemalan beans and is now adding the Honduran beans to her roasting chamber. A fresh roast of Hattie’s “Hondo” beans should be ready for sale this afternoon…. and ready top roast by 10am tomorrow morning. Besides the straight roasts Jonathan (our mad scientist) has been playing with some blends of the Costa Rican and Guatemalan roasts and even if he is our son, I have to say they are outrageously good. He has put together blends that brings out the best of each in every sip. Be sure to stop in and ask Jonathan or one of our great staff members to make you a “pour over” or “French Press” of one of Rosie’s newest roasts….. or choose from one of our 14 other coffees brought in from around the world.
If the 14 different coffees brewed 4 different ways is not enough choice for you…ask about doing a special roast just for you.
If the idea of fresh roasted coffee is not enough to get you in here… then maybe you should think about today’s sandwich special.. HATTIE’S CAJUN PO’ BOY. A perfect blend and generous portion of andouille sausage, Tasso ham, mayo, chipotle sauce, chopped lettuce, tomato and onions on a fresh baked and grilled/toasted hoagie bun. Served with our Asian ginger coleslaw or sliced fresh fruit. This sandwich is so big and filling we suggest you eat only one and that you do so before 2 in the afternoon so that you have room for breakfast the next morning.
Hope to see you soon.
Her first roast that is…. Yep, you read that right…. Rosie has finished her first “official” batch (actually two roasts) and to celebrate we are offering to the first 10 people who stop in and ask, a free 8 ounce bag of her inaugural roast “Arenal Express” a Costa Rican coffee.
“Arenal Express” is a blend of the first two roasts… a medium and dark roast. This blend hits all the right taste notes… a perfect blend of light fruitiness along with a slight flavoring of roasted nuts and lightly toasted dark bread. Wednesday we set out 1.5 gallons for our customers to sample and it was gone in less than an hour with many asking for us to brew another pot. We could not be happier…especially since we had to roast these batches without the aid of our data logger . It was all done the old fashion way…using our nose, our eyes and a little common sense.
SO YOU MAY ASK…..”How do I get a FREE bag of this special roast?” It is very simple. Starting tomorrow at 7 AM … The first 10 people who walk in to Hattie’s and announce loud enough for anyone with in 10 feet to hear…. “I AM HERE FOR MY FREE BAG OF ROSIE’S INAUGURAL ROAST” they will receive an 8 ounce bag of the whole beans. It is that simple. We hope to hear from you soon
Please join us Thursday for some of delicious soups, sandwiches and salads. Thursday we will be featuring our super fresh roasted veggie vegetable soup as well as a bacon-brocolli cheddar.
Our sandwich is brand new and never been served at Hattie’s before. We have marinated whole portabella mushroom caps for 24 hours in our special garlic sesame sauce. Once ordered we will grill the caps, then place it on two slices of our grilled hearty wheat and finish it off by adding fresh lettuce, thin sliced onions and tomato. Guaranteed to fill you up and make you smile.
If all goes well… we will do our first roast this week-end…stayed tuned.
