As a local coffee roaster, we like to join local events such as Wander Ellwood or special celebrations at The Perfect Piece in Zelienople.

When your house is filled with coffee, sometimes it doesn't all get consumed and there is a leftover cup. Or sometimes you just need and excuse to make another pot. Either way, cooking with coffee is a great way to deal with these issues. Thankfully there are lots of recipes out there using coffee in some way. One of my favorites is for Texan Sheet Cake.
