The Corner Shoppe has a new front appearance, after years in the waiting, and a extended new name. The renovation of the store front is complete, short a few finishing touches.
We've also extended the name to include "Coffee House" so everyone knows we are more than a gift/variety shop.
Lanny has been in contact with a coffee wholesaler in Davenport, who was very helpful in teaching him some basics about the espresso machine. He told us he would "give" us an hour of his time to learn more about making specialty coffees (i.e. cappuccino's, latte's). A few weeks ago we traveled to Davenport, met him at 9:00 a.m. and 5 hours later packed our pickup with all sorts of advertising signs, new flavors of smoothie mixes, new products to sell, and lots of information to absorb!
We now offer iced coffee, blended ice coffee (in flavors of vanilla latte, mocha and caramel latte) and smoothies in the flavors of strawberry, lemon (my favorite), mixed berry, and orange tangerine.
