Fall is just around the corner, and with it comes all things pumpkin Before you know it the leaves will just slightly start to change, scents of fall will touch your nose and with it the anticipation of holidays on the horizon.
Well, if I haven’t got you wishing summer were a little closer to ending yet, let me see what I can do in the next few sentences!
Here’s what you can look forward to in the coming weeks at O’Henry’s:
- Pumpkin Spice. We’ll have it all – lattes, our special Pumpkin Spice coffee, cupcakes topped with creamy cream cheese frosting…and maybe a pumpkin pie or two.
- Fall Drinks. As with every new season, we try to roll out a few drinks that fit the time of year. Check back in the next few weeks to see what we will be offering.
- Atmosphere. As always, the mornings are bustling and cozy as our guests are coming in to grab a coffee and pastry. And our baristas will have smiles on their faces ready to keep you caffeinated and ready to go!
See you next time!
In 2012, we introduced a new blend called Summer Solstice Blend. This particular blend was created out of a desire to have a little fun and to feature something entirely different from what we see most of the year at O’Henry’s Coffees. We wanted to create a blend that reflected the energy many of us feel when the Sun is at it’s closest and could stand up to the long summer days of June. We needed a coffee that could keep us humming all day long. It is a blend of 3 coffees from Central and South America, as well as East Africa. The aroma is superb; the taste is refreshingly mild and sweet with a hint of apricot and coffee blossoms. Enjoy it while it lasts!
The month of May is a busy month in Homewood. Downtown Homewood started off the month with We Love Homewood Day. Celebrations and festivities went on as residents were out and about town showing us how much they love their city. Mother's Day was last weekend, hope you all remembered to show your Mother's how much they are loved! We introduced, for the second time, Bali Blue Batur, our May Coffee of the Month. This is only the second time we have roasted it and it is a treat. Earthy and enticingly aromatic, make sure you come in and grab a bag before it is gone. Memorial Day is next Monday. We will be open limited hours. See below for individual store hours. Homewood: 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. Brookwood: Closed Highland Park: 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. Regions/Harbert: Closed
What’s Your Mission? Last month I traveled to Nicaragua with a group of 16 people from Gardendale First Baptist Church. Our church has been sending teams to Nicaragua for over two decades. We have built countless relationships with the locals and we certainly consider them “family.” After traveling all day, we arrived in Puerto Cabazas, Nicaragua. Puerto Cabazas is the home base for Mision Bautista, a mission organization that reaches out to villages along the northeastern coastline of Nicaragua. We began to load a truck and a bus with tools and medical supplies for our journey the next day. There is no “rest for the weary” on these trips. The next day we traveled to Krukira, about two hours outside of Puerto Cabazas. Krukira is a small fishing village located in northeastern Nicaragua on the Caribbean Sea. The natives spend many hours every day catching fish as […]
