Great coverage this morning on NBC! Loved hearing the history of your parents and the importance of keeping Alakef in the family! Also love your support of women in the industry. ~ From a home-roaster in Minneapolis. My wife and I share both of your passions referenced above!
Unfortunately my suggestion of using a safety letter opener to open the new style plastic bags of beans was not acceptable to the local Super One store. They would not install one as small children might be able to be injured by the device. They did not however say i can't bring my own to get the bags open. I still have the option of buying bulk from the store, but i prefer the sealed bags of beans. Oh well. I gave it a try. But they did say that store personnel would be glad to use their box cutters to open them for the customer. So we all can still get our beans ground in the store from the sealed bags.
I solved the problem of opening the new plastic bags of beans that reside in our Super One grocery stores. They cannot be opened in the store by human hands alone. Not everyone has a coffee grinder at home such as i, and i prefer to grind the beans in the store. Due to the security &safety policy of the store they don't prefer to have people cutting these bags and wielding knives and scissors for obvious reasons. They are also not willing to install box cutters or scissors at the grinding stations for good reason. I have noticed in recent weeks that the bags of beans on the shelves that the bags are constructed of this material are not being bought. I came up with a workable tool. I use a cheap letter opener like this which can be bought cheaply and are often given away at functions as door prizes as mine was. I just draw it across the bag to cut the top open. And it is a safe tool that doesn't allow a person to cut themselves. Or anyone else for that matter, so store personnel won't frown upon it. I will be showing this tool to the store managers of Super Ones i shop at in Cloquet and West Duluth. Hopefully they will install one on a tether at the grinding station.
We are SO EXCITED to try the "Shine Bright for Kids" blend we recently purchased...we bought six bags! So happy to help out a business AND donate to an incredible cause that is very near and dear to our hearts! Here is Cami, who is the beautiful face featured on these bags of coffee for Children's MN, proudly holding a bag of coffee with younger sis. They smell AMAZING. Thank you so much for your support, Alakef!!
I so love your coffee!!! Spoiled on it. But I have an issue and don't know who to bring it to in Alakef. Went onto your website very early this AM to see if you had a special for Memorial Day. The first message that greeted me was something to the effect that because veteran's fought for our freedom on this day, all orders would get free shipping. I think it should've said your usual $99.00. I ordered just under $75.00 and no free shipping. Your Order #100010877 (placed on May 28, 2018 4:48:03 AM CDT) :( Maybe you want to correct that on your website today.
Your staff should be commended for saving an owl. What a heartwarming story.
My favorite was Grogg. My sister and I had our first cup in Bemidji some years back. Loved it so much we would have our sister in Duluth send it to us...I live in Canada. Recently I have noticed a huge taste difference and called to let them know the 4 bags I had just purchased tasted horrible. Upon talking to my two sisters and friends that I have gotten hooked on it...all said the same thing. Very disappointed. I called Alakef to let them know their coffee I had purchased from Cub foods in Duluth was off. I was told they changed the recipe and the bean distributor. HOW SAD IS THAT??? WHY CHANGE A GOOD THING! Did not offer a refund or a different flavour. So disappointed. I have since found a different company out of Florida that is totally awesome. Good bye Alakef
Has anyone tried the Organic Sumatra Blend? What did you think? I don't see any reviews for it.
I'm missing your coffee! I haven't had it since the Smiling Moon in Baudette was open!
Thank you again Alakef Coffee Roasters for the coffee donation this year. We served hundreds of runners a fresh cup of coffee. They loved the unique surprise of getting a cup of coffee along the marathon route.
Thank you Alakef for donating coffee, again!!!! Ready for Grandma's Marathon...Mile 11.5
