Tonight Hurricane Sandy is wreaking havoc on New York City and the East Coast. I was just there a few weeks ago enjoying all of the wonderful sights and sounds the city has to offer, and I can’t help but worry about all of the people and businesses that I love going to there.
One of those is Porto Rico Importing Co. on Bleecker St in Greenwich Village. I’ve been buying my coffee there ever since I had a place in NY, and after I moved I continued to have it shipped to Texas. I knew they had great coffee at amazing prices, but a few days ago I got a flyer from them telling about the history of the family and that the owner’s Mom, who has always been a part of the business and lived over the store just had her 100th birthday! I can’t imagine the stories she must have as someone who lived in NYC all of her life, but you feel like you are experiencing some of that history just by visiting the store.
To celebrate Rose’s 100 birthday they are doing a very special blend. I know I’m going to have to buy a few lbs to celebrate this special occasion -to order yours, you can visit their website or give them a call at: 1-800-453-5908
