Yelp Elite + Hartford Baking Company

Dec 9, 2013   //   by admin   //   Blog  //  No Comments

We recently teamed up with Yelp Hartford for a Yelp Elite event at the bakery. It was a wonderful evening filled with food, wine and so many great people! We welcomed forty or so friendly and enthusiastic Yelp Elite members into our storefront to better acquaint them with our product and ethos.

We served a mix of sweet and savory bites, from raspberry almond bars and salted caramel popcorn to hummus sandwiches and bread with gourmet compound butters. To keep everyone adequately hydrated, Emily Cahill (Community Manager of Yelp Harford) supplied a generous amount of wine. Our resident coffee gurus, Alex Kluger and Matt Cain, gave AeroPress and V60 pour-over demonstrations over the course of the night. At the end of the event, we sent our guests home with a loaf of seasonal cranberry-pecan bread.

We can’t thank Emily and all of the lovely Yelp Elite members enough for sharing in such a fun night with us! We’ve already seen many faces return to the cafe, and nothing makes us happier than that.

Kenya Gatomboya Grand Cru

A shipment of Stumptown’s Grand Cru Kenya Gatomboya recently arrived at the store–just in time for the holidays! The Grand Cru line is “Stumptown’s way of distinguishing truly exquisite coffees from the already outstanding ones we buy,” making this the perfect gift for the coffee aficionado in your life.

Tasting notes of brown sugar, port, black currant and plums create “a cohesive and complex cup with a buttery textured finish.”

Stop by the store today to pick up a bag!
