Hello, Blanchard's Coffee Lovers,

Welcome to fall, or at least Virginia's version of fall, which is all the seasons combined for maximum variety! While you're trying to beat back allergies and colds due to the weather, we've got a couple pepper-uppers for you:

Ukrop's is now carrying our Autumn Blend, which you can also try tomorrow morning at the South of the James farmer's market (Tom & Christina will be there!). Swing in and pick up a bag.

Also, starting early next week, our September coffee of the month will be for sale up in the shop, so if you haven't bought a Coffee of the Month subscription, you can still get it--it just won't be delivered to your door.

Tom's departing to Puerto Rico Thursday night on behalf of project: ORIGIN. The Project could still use some support for the trip, so please pre-order a bag of Puerto Rican coffee, or donate just because! Don't forget that if you donate to this trip, you'll get a cup of coffee on Blanchard's if you show your receipt.

That's all from BlanchardLand! Swing in and see us!

Welcome to the Blanchard's Blog

Hey there, Blanchard's Coffee lovers,

We've finally jumped on the Blog train. From now on, you'll be able to check this blog for updates regarding new coffees, new clients, special events, and so on.

Don't think you'll be able to remember the blog address? We promise it's easy. You've made it this far already:


If you've been up in the shop recently, you may have noticed there have been some changes. We've got a rotating selection of [delicious] pastries now, and we're starting to add more to our bulk coffee selections as well. Currently, along with our usual Yirgacheffe and House Blend, we've also got a Kenyan (our coffee of the month for September) all dolled up with nowhere to go. Take some home with you. More selections to come. We're doing what we can to ensure you can always find something different to brew.

Dena will be at the South of the James market tomorrow, so make her day by stopping by to say hello. A little further west? St. Stephen's Episcopal Church and Joe's Market both sell our coffee Saturday mornings, so you can get your buzz on without driving all the way down to the south side.

These next couple of weeks will also be your last chance to get our Summer blend from Ukrop's (until next year, that is), so take advantage of it while you can! We're sad to see summer go too, you know.

If you've never been into the shop, it's never too late to start.
