I am so excited for my niece, Kate, and her sister-in-law, Julie. They LOVE coffee!!! And Kate, with a background in making and serving gourmet coffee, is like a coffee diva (she even speaks 'brew' as I like to call it) - it has to be right or it's just so wrong! And that is very good for those folks who love a great cup of coffee. These two women decided to put their money and time where their hearts are - apparently in a coffee mug! A few months of blood, sweat and tears (and prayer!) and here they are at their grand (or 'grande' as I like to call it) opening. I had the opportunity to sip their offerings at a 'family and friends' pre-party a couple of weeks ago.
Mmmmm, seriously delicious coffee! Here are Kate (in green) and Julie (in plaid) at their ribbon-cutting ceremony. So if you happen to be in the little coastal town of Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula, head to Lighthouse street and stop in at Lighthouse Coffee Company and tell Kate or Julie that you read about them here at the Trend Spot. (Maybe you'll score a discount!)
