Have you ever woke up late for work and wanted to go back to sleep? Have you ever tried to fix coffee and couldn't wait long enough for it to finish brewing? Have you ever tried to cook breakfast and ended up burning it beyond edibility? There's a solution to all of these problems.
Take a short drive to the center of town and place your order at The Brazil Coffee Company. There you can find a wide variety of foods to fill your belly and drinks to soothe your bad day or start your good day.
Owners Pete and Jackie Wilson would like to invite the community to gather on friendly grounds and take the time to enjoy the day with a great cup of joe.
According to Pete, everything in the store is made by him and Jackie except for the danishes, eclairs, bagels and coffee beans. Homemade in the store are cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls and most beverages.
There are a wide variety of cakes, including frosted cakes, picture cakes, wedding cakes, filled cakes and cupcakes, with or without a picture. Cookies can come single, in a bouquet, a tin or with a picture on them. The cookies can also be shipped anywhere in the U.S.
The store sells fresh brewed coffees, bagged coffee beans, lattes, frappuccinos, cappuccinos, espressos, fruit smoothies, steamers, hot teas, Italian sodas and hot chocolate.
Along a rail hanging around the coffee shop are mugs that have been donated or loaned to the Wilsons for the decor of the shop. There are about a hundred hanging and still there are more coffee cups that they are waiting for another rail to be put up. The use of the cups in the store's decor, "Gives everybody a little bit of ownership in this place, just because they gave us a cup," Pete said.
An expansion to the coffee store may be in the works in the near future. The space above the current store is vacant and could lead to the possibility of a private party room that can also be used for overflow seating. Pete is thinking of ideas for the new space.
He said there is a good chance that the area will include a lounging space with a comfy couch and chairs. The dining and seating area will most likely have 20-24 tables and may include a kitchenette or, later on down the road, an espresso bar.
Who knows, if you're a good customer and visit frequently, Pete may just break out his ukulele and serenade you with tunes of the Beatles.
The Brazil Coffee Company is open Monday through Thursday 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. The store is closed on Sundays, but is available for private parties.
