Black Cat delivers

If you’re looking for a way to support a local business (and thanks to all of you who signed up for the Good Food Box!), Black Cat is delivering fresh-roasted coffee beans and beer.

If you haven’t tried it, Black Cat has one of the weirdest coffees I’ve ever had (and I’ve had the civet poop one. Meh.) It’s a light Ethiopian roast that tastes like cherries and blueberries because it’s dried with the fruit on the bean. Super good—but drink it black. I’ve got an order in.

Hi all-delivery updates: A lot of you awesome people have orders that are in queue to be delivered. I will be doing all those on Wednesday since we got so much support and ran out of coffee… completely. The new roast is ready Wednesday morning, so you’ll be getting super fresh coffee.. as always.. 😆 anything else ordered with coffee is also coming the same time. Thanks for the support and the patience. ❤️ Anyone that would like to order and support just a reminder that because our stores had to close because of COVID, we have switched to coffee delivery and cases of @greatlakesbeer beers since we have a lot of stock. We are delivering their tall cans of Lager and APA. Please DM me for orders. Any new orders coming in will be Thursday deliveries. Please send the orders before we run out:) thanks again!

Black Cat Espresso is open!

Weston has a new coffee shop, and it’s great. Black Cat Espresso, in the new commercial development on Rosemount, is super hip and super good. They’ve been under construction for a year, and it’s been worth the wait.

If you hurry, they are selling everything—everything—for $0 today (tips gratefully accepted). Coffee, lattés, baguettes and sandwiches: all free. Amazing.

The building is beautiful, with exposed brick, timber, great decorations, and personality. My double espresso was dark and bitter, just like me. My wife says her latté was the best she’s ever had. She raved.
