There is nothing like the aroma of the first pot of fresh coffee as it brews in the early morning! As a life long lover of coffee, one of the absolute musts for me was serving a great cup of coffee to our guests every morning. For that reason, we found the best roasting company in our area and worked with them to develop what is now the Blackberry Inn Blend that we proudly serve every morning! Our special blend is sold here at the Inn so if you come to love our coffee as much as we do, feel free to take some home with you!
As for the coffee itself, it is a product of Rock City Coffee Roasters in neighboring Rockland, Maine. In the companies 16 years, they have grown significantly and in 2002 were recognized with a TOPS Award for Excellence from the Specialty Coffee Association of America. Visit their website at http://www.rockcitycoffee.com/ for details of the award, their history and information on their commitment to education and the community. And while you are there, take a look at all of the phenomenal coffee varieties they have to offer!
