Two Roasting Joes | Tour with Tom

By | Community | No Comments

After he and his neighbor, Brian, had a conversation one day about how much they love coffee, Brian mentioned that he knew a friend that was roasting his own beans. They started looking into where to source green beans and brought a small roaster and started enjoying one, fragrant cup of a coffee at a time. They were hooked!

They decided to share this joy and, when trying to figure out what to call themselves, Tom asked Brian: “What are we all about?”—the answer? “We’re just two average joes roasting coffee.” and so the name “Two Roasting Joes” was born. Tom’s daughter also provides baked goods for the store, “Livy Cakes” for a sweet treat with your coffee. In a rush? Drop your money in the slot and grab it right from the front counter.

410 degrees + 15minutes = coffee that’s worth taking a moment to savor! Watch how Two Roasting Joes roast and package all their coffee in-house, have over 25 flavors, and why they take the trouble to make high-quality coffee because they believe you deserve great coffee!

By | Community | No Comments

When people think Eastern Avenue Lumber they generally just think lumber, but we bet you didn’t know that this 70+ year family-owned local business rivals big-box hardware in what’s on offer.  Founded in 1947, when it was first established Eastern Avenue Lumber mainly provided milling and lumbar for contractors and large projects, but today its offerings have expanded to provide a convenient, general hardware store for the local community.

After growing up in the business, Chelsea didn’t plan to run it as she now does with her husband, but instead went to college and graduated with a degree in teaching. Life led her in a different direction back to a family business that rivals big-box hardware stores. Meet Chelsea and be surprised by all that’s on offer including all your plumbing needs, paint, power tools, nuts and bolts, garage door parts, cutting keys, screen doors, windows, and they even work with external suppliers for special orders.

Come get your hands dirty with Chelsea from Eastern Avenue Lumber as she shows Meredith a super simple DIY way to fix and fill nail holes in your drywall at home.
