Have a cuppa coffee

I just learned from UrbanDictionary  that “Do you want to get a cup of coffee” is code for “Do you want to have sex?” Good to know in the hospitality industry! I won’t be offering you that cup of coffee, but you can help yourself  to our delicious organic free trade coffee. Of course you can have both kinds of coffee when you visit a Romantic Getaway like Mariaville Lake B&B.

Deans Beans Roasting Facility

Deans Beans Roasting Facility

I recently visited Deans Beans in Orange Massachusetts so I could see exactly where our coffee comes from. Their facility is in a beautiful rural area with the sweet smell of pine and coffee in the air.


The folks there are super friendly and showed me all around. They buy their organic beans direct from small farms and cooperatives  that are committed to fair trade. Coffee Beans Their warehouse was chock full of bags and bags of beans from all over the world. The employees have a great groove going in moving those bags over to the roasters.






Roasting BeansThe place was super clean and the roasters were state of the art.

The beans are roasted in small batches and ship the same day.  They sell roasts with cool names like Thunder Mug, Rattlesnake Gutter Brew and Full Moon. We are presently serving Sumatran French Roast and Birdwatcher’s Blend.


Sumatran French Roast



The average American worker spends $1109 on coffee per year. You may as well spend wisely and get the best coffee you can afford. Plus with every sip of coffee from a company like Deans Beans, you help to make the planet a better place.  I’d rather have one cup of perfect coffee than 5 cups of crappy coffee.
