It's Not "Goodbye" It's...

...Catch ya' on the flip side.

We are so sorry to have to leave our beloved coffee shop behind. Sommer and I have enjoyed seeing your faces six days a week for the past two years, and we hope that we've shed a positive light in your lives. Please take a moment and read our final eNewsletter (URL link is below).

Who knows, maybe this life's journey will have our paths cross again. It's not over until it's over, right?

Don't forget to always "Thirst for something more".

Let's share one last cup of coffee (eNewsletter): - http://eepurl.com/CQrD9

It's Been a While...


OK. First, I apologize for taking this long to post another entry in our blog. I have been one busy small business owner. One reason for all my busyness has to do with the AWESOME events I've got planned for the month of July.

Being that Summer is now in full swing, and we're all trying to find more time to spend with our family and friends, why not stop in the coffee lounge for one (if not all) of the following upcoming events?

MOMMY-N-ME: Paper Mosaic Craft

Being that I ADORE children of all ages, I try to make each weekly group activity unique, easy, and most of all FUN! I was also an art major so I'm a little biased when it comes to activities involving paper, paint, glue, scissors and all things messy---though I try to keep it clean as best I can. ;) This is a craft you and your kids will want to take home, hang on the wall and show off to all your friends and family who stop by. (To see who else is coming, CLICK HERE.)

KARAOKE NIGHT by DJ Dave Entertainment

Back by popular demand!!! We hosted a karaoke night in June, and before the night was over, everyone was asking when we would hold our next one. I hate to let anyone down, so I asked my friends at DJ Dave Entertainment if they could help me out and they happily obliged. You won't want to miss this! (To see who else is coming, CLICK HERE.)

MOMMY-N-ME: 'Kung Fu Panda' Movie Showing & Ninja Finger Puppet Craft

Besides arts & crafts, I LOVE movies. Put the two together and you've got guaranteed fun. Let the kids have fun with their ninja puppets while enjoying a funny Dreamworks' film. (To see who else is coming, CLICK HERE.)

Friday, July 26 @ 7pm
LIVE MUSIC by Victoria Saunders

Being the artsy people persons that we are, we love to support local artists and musicians. Victoria has sang here many times before and she always brings her talent and a crowd. Arrive early if you'd like a good seat. (To see who else is coming, CLICK HERE.)

 Wednesday, July 31 @ 10:30am
MOMMY-N-ME:Story & Craft Time

One of our sweet, loyal customers Faith volunteers to run Mommy-N-Me once a month. She ran our very first group after we opened the lounge two years ago. This week her theme is 'Going to the Beach'. To support a local author, check our her book HERE(To see who else is coming, CLICK HERE.)

That's all for now. I hope to see YOU ALL again soon.

How to "Taste" Coffee


Hey all,

As you know, when describing the taste of our various coffee blends our roasters use phrases like "full bodied", "notes of semi-sweet chocolate" or "nutty finish". If you are confused by this, don't worry. Square One Coffee (our awesome roasters based in Lancaster, PA) shared an informational video by JJ Bean called How to Taste Coffee. Take a look below:

Hey all! We hope the longer days and soon-to-come Spring weather is getting you excited for the season. Here at Sixty-Six Beans we're lovin' it. Because we love our customers input and getting you involved, we've created a contest where you can create your own drink and have it featured on our menu board. How cool is that?

Here are the rules:
1) Pick your form: Latte (iced/hot), Americano (iced/hot), Frappé or Drip Coffee (iced/hot)
2) Select your flavor combination: caramel*, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, gingerbread, hazelnut*, peppermint, raspberry, toasted marshmallow, vanilla* or white chocolate (*denotes sugar-free available) NOTE: The syrup to beverage size ratio is 3 pumps/12oz and 4 pumps/16 or 20oz—except for our caramel and chocolate sauces which are 2 pumps/12oz and 3 pumps/16 or 20 oz
3) Name your drink: the more creative and catchy the better

2) Then "powers that be" will decide upon three finalists.
3) The top three beverages will then be temporarily available for purchase at Sixty-Six Beans and the people of Charlotte Hall will VOTE on a winner. (One vote per person, no exceptions.)
4) Voting will begin Monday, May 06, 2013 through Saturday May 11, 2013.

Our Roaster's Roasting Philosophy


Darn, I missed saying something really clever for 12/12/12. C'est la vie! ;)

Many of you ask what our various 'Coffees of the Day' taste like (dark vs. light, bold flavors vs. subtle). I will let you know that almost all of our coffees are of the Light/Medium roast range---except our dark French Roast, of course. Why is this, you ask? Well let me have our roasters explain:

"Because we're purchasing some of the best beans available (in the top 3% of the world), we take great care in the way we roast our coffee! Call us crazy, but we just don’t feel right about burning our beans! In general, the darker a coffee is roasted, the less you can actually taste the subtle nuances of the coffee. Really dark roasts just end up taking on a carbonized flavor, and they don’t showcase many of the complex flavors of the actual beans." (Square One Coffee)

Top 3%, IN THE WORLD! Did you catch that? Not only are our coffee beans fairly traded and organic, they're the best of the best. Doesn't that make you smile? Lil' ole Charlotte Hall has some of the finest quality coffee this world has to offer! How many small-town, independent coffee shops can say that??

As buddy the Elf once said, "You did it! Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It's great to be here." He's right. Of course we're a little biased, but our roaster's really do create some of the World's best cups of coffee, and yes, it is great to be here. =)

Happy Thursday everybody,
