Over much of the summer I’ve been hula hooping at the West Broadway Farmers Market, and supporting local businesses who sell their produce here. One of my favorite vendors is Black Onyx Creations, who serve up a terrific cup of joe. Today they are selling my favorite kind of java, Tanzanian Peaberry coffee.
Frank and Terry Wlliams, the proprietors, explained to me why it is that the Tanzanian Peaberry is better than other peaberry coffees. This blend is made specifically from a bean that is grown as a single bean. Other peaberries are just the genetic anomalies of regular coffee beans. As I sit here typing this post, I’m hearing Frank expound on the finer points of Black Onyx’s chais and other blends. Their knowledge of the finer points of their coffee is matched only by the quality of their product.
(Oh, and their ability to swap at the hornets that come to visit the market.)
The Farmers Market is open on West Broadway, just east of Penn Ave, Sundays 10-3, through the end of October. The caffeine kick will kickstart hula hooping too!
