cleveland coffeehouses honor our coffee guru for 30 years of roasting
Can you imagine being the first one to open a coffeehouse in Cleveland? Even Dewey, who now sells our coffee at Deweys Coffee Cafe on Shaker Square, thought Carl was crazy back then. Now even Dewey has come around. The industry has changed so much since then... in 1976, a large coffee was 8 ounces and cost $.65. Now a large is 20 ounces and costs at least $1.85. And Starbucks has 8600 location in the US.
Next week, the following coffeehouses around Cleveland will be participating in some way in our 70s flashback week, to help introduce our new Spirit of 76 Blend, honor Carl's accomplishments, and have fun in the process:
- Phoenix Coffee, Lee Road, Cleveland Heights
- Phoenix Coffee, Superior Ave, Downtown
- Phoenix Coffee, Detroit Ave, Lakewood
- Dewey's Coffee Cafe, Shaker Square
- Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop
- Banjoe's Cafe, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport
- Isola Bella, Eton Collection
- Serendipity, Pearl and Broadway
- Europa Cafe, Pineridge Plaza, Willoughby
- Beans Coffeshop, Chardon
- Cool Beans, on the Square, Medina
- The Enclave, Willoughby
At many of these locations, you'll find baristas wearing 70s clothes (keep an eye out for Sasha's pink sequined disco bell bottoms), disco balls, turntables and 70s vinyl, and at all of them you will find specially labeled Spirit of '76 blend coffee beans!
We will also be featuring, just for nostalgia's sake this week, an 8 ounce cup of the Spirit of '76 Blend for $.65. Just for kicks. When was the last time a cup of coffee was $.65? Oh, yeah, in 1976!
