What's the buzz? - Locally roasted coffee in the BCS

In Monday's "Local Diet Update," I mentioned how tickled I am that so many vendors are still toughing it out at our local farmers market. Sure, it's cold, but this is a dedicated bunch. Last year, we had only three vendors during the coldest months (December, January, and February), this year (at least as of last week), we have 12! Go local!

Most of our vendors offer fruits, veggies, jam and jellies, honey, eggs, and/or plants. Although I'm not a coffee drinker (I'm a total tea junkie), I was really excited about one of the market's newest vendors, John Flynn, owner of "What's the Buzz Coffee Co." He started with us in early fall and is out there every Saturday with a wide variety of locally roasted coffees. I've been told by a number of people that it's fabulous! Of course, he's the hit of the market these days... all that hot coffee, all those cold bodies... 

I've enjoyed speaking to John every Saturday at the market, congratulated him when I saw that the Village Cafe (our new local/organic eatery) was serving his coffees, and was thrilled to learn over the weekend that his shop is now open for business! "What's the Buzz" offers a variety of coffees from all over the world, roasted right here in Bryan-College Station (including a line of organic coffees) - certainly a little something for everyone. And here we are right before a major holiday... some locally roasted coffee would be a perfect gift, don't you think?

Can't make it to the shop or the farmers market? Check out the fabulous, new "What's the Buzz Coffee Co." website. It includes information on each of his coffees, brewing tips, and the opportunity to order on-line. Check it out!
Visit John at his new location (2151 Harvey Mitchell Parkway South, Suite 326 in College Station) or swing by the Saturday Farmers Market in Bryan.
