To the Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful management and staff at Sisters Antiques and Coffee Bar for the great night I had on Friday, June 3.

The coffee bar sponsored a coffee tasting. A young man from Clabber Girl in Terre Haute was there to tell us all about coffee beans, how to grind them, and brew them, and let us taste a few difference coffees.

He showed us how to operate the one-cup maker that sisters sells. It was a great demonstration and quite informative. I learned that I should not be storing my canned coffee in the fridge and that buying beans and only grinding what I want to use right now is the best way to have a great cup of coffee.

Sisters Coffee Bar also had wonderful samples of the cookies and other treats that they serve at the coffee bar, by the way, which is located at the rear of the store.

If you ever get a chance, you have to got there for a cup of great coffee and they have a to-die-for chilled coffee treat as well and enjoy the atmosphere.

So many booths in the antique shop and some items just bring back such great memories.

After the coffee demonstration, we were entertained by Jack Shannon, a local, from Rockville, singer/songwriter who was fabulous.

His songs were wonderful and too bad he doesn't yet have a CD as I want to buy the first one when he does make it. Great songs.

And people, all of this was free. No cost to the public. It was a most pleasant evening to spend.

The management and staff of Sisters Antique and Coffee Bar are to be commended for putting on such a wonderful evening. I hope they realize that it was enjoyed by all.

We need to have more things like this going on in Brazil.

Thank you to all and keep up the fantastic work.
