Wellness Wednesday: For the Heart, From the Heart

We can find high amount of antioxidants not only in chocolate, but also in that morning cup of joe. Coffee has an array of health benefits and includes vitamins B2, B3, and B5, manganese, magnesium, potassium, and niacin. Some studies show that a cup of coffee even improves mood! We offer coffee from Alpine Sierra, Blind Dog, Woodfire and the Hub. For a fresh cup on the go, check out Cafe Dose, a handy kit that transforms the humble mason jar into a gourmet pour-over device. FInd it and many more coffee accessories in store. Check out our selection in our grocery department and make sure to check out our coffee tasting workshop on February 22nd from 11 am to noon!
