Moving into our 5th year..

Our dearest customers, We have been privileged to provide our local New Hampshire customers with the finest specialty coffees available.  While we have endeavored to keep prices as low as possible, costs are no longer what they were when we launched this endeavor almost five years ago and we have reached a point where we need to standardize some of our processes and production lines. With this in mind, we have made the decision to follow the model used by most other third wave coffee companies and standardize on a 12 ounce bag for all of our retail packaging.  Between increases in our costs across the board (rent, utilities, coffee, etc.) and our commitment to pay a good wage to...

Longing...

I am up in the mountains this week, although I am not crazy hiking them, I am staying in a super swank hotel up north with great, sweeping  southeastern and southwestern views of the White Mountains.  If you have climbed up and into the mountains, if you have roamed them endlessly for one entire summer, sometimes at the base you feel a longing "to be back there". This is the theme of tonight's blog post.  I have had some time recently to read back  to my original blue print for the Dover cafe and I can see where we nailed it (3rd wave atmosphere and mind blowing coffees) where we missed it (the community room for the community) and where...

We have had many groups assemble and gather in the community room and really, for me seeing this connection is what drives my passion for Flight Dover. We have had some time to retreat from planned events and like after all retreats we fell refreshed and newly determined to serve the Dover Community. As a business owner in Dover, I want to do good.  Specialty coffee is all about connection- connection to origin, connection to ourselves and connection to each other. I believe a community...

New Coffee Line Up for Dover Cafe

It is hard to believe August is just about upon us.  July was a busy month for the cafe.  We enjoyed serving the Kenya Kiambu at the pour over and it was so much fun to brew it 3 different ways.  It is interesting to see just how the brew device frames the coffee. So this month we are going back to the V-60 at pour overs and we will be featuring 3 unique coffees.  But first let's talk about our batch brew offering for the month of August. DATERRA FARMS PEABERRY PEARL: Tasting Notes:   This coffee is a very full bodied (very textured) blend of pulped natural coffees offers up a very sweet milk chocolate, pecan, and blueberry. Long lasting sweet...
