I’m pleased to report that Matt’s was chosen by Yankee Magazine for inclusion in its holiday gift basket of New England-made products. There’s no actual basket to order–it’s fake. Or, rather, it does exist–I mean, they actually took a picture of it–but there’s only one of them, and it dwells in the offices of Yankee itself. In any case, the photo can be found on page 66 of the November/December issue. Yankee thinks Matt’s would make a great gift at holiday time. We couldn’t agree more.
Folks in the Portland, ME area also might have seen an article on Matt’s entitled “No Foreign Oil in This Brew,” in The Maine Switch. Pretty cool. And while it’s true we use no petroleum in the roasting process–even the electricity we use is hydro-generated–we do, in fact, rely on oil to get the coffee from all parts of the world to our roastery. There’s no getting around that (though we’ve thought about how, theoretically, we could put some Dominican coffee on a sailboat and bring it up to Maine. We confess this plan mostly has to do with just visiting the DR, which would be cool).
We also have some new coffees aboard. More on those later. Til then, check out the menu and our descriptions of said coffees.
