For our friends in McPherson & Lawrence, we have great news…… You can now find Blacksmith Coffee locally!
They have to-die-for lunch specials where you can get a nice BBQ sandwich, drink, cookies or chips for something like six bucks. We’re talking excellent, high quality foods here. They are definitely a great fit for Blacksmith Coffee as a high quality food retailer.
After visiting there, I now know what all the hub-bub is about! Let me put it this way……being from Boulder County, Colorado, I have a lot of experience shopping at Wild Oats and Alfalfas markets. These were prominent natural foods stores, long before it became trendy to “eat local”, “buy organic” or “support fair-trade”. Today, they’re huge!
Anyway, they have a certain smell to them….
I can’t really describe it. It’s the combination of freshly cut herbs, and incense, and goat milk soap and loose leaf tea. Bottom line, when I walked in to “The Merc” I had a flashback to walking in to the original Wild Oats on Pearl St. in Boulder when I was about 14 years old. Unlike my childhood experience, I didn’t see any actual hippies……. but I could picture them.
This is the place to go if you want natural foods. I’m talking the premium, non-processed, hand picked, high quality food that has all the vitamins and nutrients you can’t get out of a Happy Meal. It’s a beautiful store, in an easy-to-access location on Iowa St. just south of I-70. Go there to get some premium Blacksmith Coffee and maybe get a shot of wheatgrass juice while you’re there to give you enough energy to get home so you can brew up your favorite coffee!
Just in case you’re wondering – The answer is “No”. We will not be creating any Wheatgrass flavored coffee in the future.
