The Spicy History of the Pumpkin Spice Latte
It’s official — Pumpkin Spice season has arrived! Throughout September and October, we’re serving up our homemade take on autumn’s most popular drink. And we do it a little differently.
We’re blending real pumpkin puree into velvety steamed milk and stirring it into our organic Black Kat espresso with a splash of all natural and nothing-artificial pumpkin spice syrup. We garnish this delight with whipped cream and a shake of cinnamon. How good does that sound??
In celebration of introducing our brand new, real Pumpkin Spice latte, we thought this would be a neat opportunity to take a deeper look into how this sippable fixture of fall came to be, what pumpkin spice really is, and evaluating the inescapable myths and lore that surround it. Read blog here!
One World Hosts Business Workshop for Local Teens
The neat thing about being part of an ethical business is that it connects you to much more than just your industry. Just as a coffee plant is part of a living ecosystem, so too are we a part of the social and communal ecosystem around us — we have a role to serve in helping it thrive.
Recently, One World Roasters had an opportunity to do just that, and right in our local community.
We teamed up with Solar Youth to offer some young men and women an opportunity to learn about the coffee industry and starting a green business of their own.
The Best Coffee Brewing Methods for Every Situation
You don’t need a special occasion to brew yourself a stellar cup of coffee, but a different occasion can call for a different approach. We all have our go-to methods of preparing coffee to our liking, but with a little exploration we have the power to bring out entirely different flavors and qualities in the coffees we love and even make coffee possible in a variety of different situations (camping trip, anyone?).
In this month’s blog we’ll explore seven of our favorite coffee brewing methods that, when done properly, will give you great cups of coffee suited to your taste and convenience.
Why Shop Local?
To find the answer, you don't have to look far!
If you didn’t know, as of January 2019, One World Roasters has opened the doors of its cafe to the public!
The response so far has been unbelievable and so heart-warming for us to see as an up and coming small business in the East Haven community. We’ve found incredible enthusiasm for the coffee shop in the local area and among even many residents of towns well outside of our backyard:
"Best cup of coffee I've had in a long time. This is my new go-to for good coffee. No more bland coffee chains. I've been waiting for this! If you want great coffee that's not overpriced and more importantly, a LOCAL small business, go to One World Roasters Cafe & Espresso Bar." -Jackie Trickett-Sargent
"I love the shop and I love the product. The coffee is top rate, we drink it every morning in our house and when we have people over they’re always commenting on how good the coffee is. A notch above is not fair to what you serve — it’s in a league of its own." -Josh Balter
"The espresso’s magnificent, the blend’s terrific, and I can’t wait to come back again." -Chaz Esposito
"I came here a couple weeks ago. I loved your coffee, I’m glad you’re open. I wish you all the luck in the world and I think you’re gonna’ make it here. It’s definitely a different kind of business - it’s gonna’ attract a lot more people here. We don’t have something like this in East Haven so it’s gonna’ do well, it’s gonna’ do very well." -Joe Carfora
"East Haven is so lucky to have you guys in town. Looking forward to the Saturday hours. I'll be coming from Wallingford to enjoy your coffee. Will you do iced coffee???" [Yes we will!] -Tamara Rae
We set up shop here because we wanted to offer something special — something we cared deeply about — to a community that we felt had limited options for high quality organic and fair trade coffees sold at reasonable prices and delivered locally. We’ve been very fortunate to be embraced in an area that for so long has been dominated by big chain coffee vendors, and the reactions of so many people we’ve spoken to hit on something very important — the value of shopping locally.
We often hear that it’s good to support local small businesses, and if you’re already a customer of ours we are so thankful for that support, but, frankly, we’re just the tip of the iceberg. Why is it specifically that shopping locally makes such a difference? Why is it so important?
We thought we’d take this blog as an opportunity to answer these questions — the obvious and the not-so-obvious reasons. Let’s dive in.
