So that was summer...
Summer is just about over albeit with the occasional last kick of higher temperatures, but it will soon be time for fluffy jumpers and slippers, crackling leaves, roaring fires and Christmas coffee. And what a busy summer it's been. We've attended more Local Produce and Farmer's Markets meeting our lovely customers in Swansea, Cardiff, Penarth, Brecon, Cowbridge, St. Donat's & the Vale so far; we've purchased a bigger roaster and grinder so we can increase our output without working all night; we've started a new Local Produce & Craft and a General Market in Treorchy and our coffee is now stocked in three local cafes as well as a number of delicatessens. We have also redesigned our packaging to make it more environmentally friendly with mostly recycled, recyclable and/or compostable parts.
Now we are looking towards winter and seasonal blend coffee, Christmas Fayres and thermal underwear. We are spreading our wings further afield and are looking forward to meeting the good folk of Wye Valley, Tredegar House, Abergavenny, and Llanyrafon Manor along with our regular markets Christmas events. Look out for our gift baskets online as well as at the markets.
Treorchy is having three Christmas Markets on the 8th, 15th & 22nd of December so you if you can't make one you should be able to get to another. We'll have snow, face painting, mulled wine, roasting chestnuts and all things Christmassy.
