I love birthdays, I guess I never grew out of that 5 year-old-wide-eyed-birthday cake wonder. Other holidays are okay, Christmas is fun, Thanksgiving is full of yumminess, but birthdays. Wow. There is just something so special about them! The only thing that would make birthdays better is if it was celebrated all month long. Am I right?
So… Surprise! That’s what we’re going to do here at Lionheart Coffee Company! Go big or go home. For the month of May we have quite the lineup of events, releases, and surprises for all of the wonderful people who have supported us in our first year of business!
For our birthday month kickoff weekend, representatives from Stumptown Coffee Roasters will be in the shop from 11am-2pm on Saturday, May 7, hosting our Cold Brew Single Origin Release Party. They will be on our manual brew bar brewing the same single origin that we will have on tap. We will be offering flights of the single origin so that you can try it different ways… now who doesn’t want in on that party?
For those of you who might be new to the Cold Brew game, this method brings out some of the brightest and sweetest flavor notes of each coffee. We are excited to feature a rotating cast of Stumptown’s single origin coffees that really shine through this brew method. Cold Brew is also the most highly caffeinated beverage that we offer, it’s brewed in such a way that it fully extracts all of the caffeine from the beans. So if you need a little bit stronger of a pick me up, you will definitely want to try the Cold Brew 🙂
But don’t worry, the fun doesn’t end there! We will have live music from Mariah Gurney on Saturday, May 7, from 3pm-5pm. Mariah has been singing since she was a little girl and loves the story telling aspect of it. She gets her inspiration from other people’s life experiences and finds beauty in being able to convey emotion and meaning through music. She said, “It’s easy to relate, and be related to with music as a medium.” And at the end of the day, isn’t that really what everybody wants? To be related to and to be deeply heard and understood? To meet Mariah and enjoy her uniquely acoustic sound, come out on Saturday!
We’ll be doing fun events like this every weekend this month, so be sure to check back next week for the following weekend’s lineup! And can I let you in on a little secret? We might possibly have a super special something on the experience bar from Sterling Coffee Roasters. Stay tuned! And last but not least, Happy Birthday Lionheart Coffee!
