Tea blend to honor Akron OH Inventor
We have created a tea blend to honor a local man from Akron, OH for his contributions as an energy inventor and scientist, Stanford Ovshinsky, and the blend is the Stanford Apricot Amalgam.
Stanford Ovshinsky drank both Black tea and Green tea daily, with a habit of adding jam to sweeten it up. Muggswigz’ tea blend is named, ‘Stanford’s Apricot Amalgam’ and is a black and green tea blend to represent the contribution to AC/DC current issues research he worked on. The apricot flavor pays homage to the jam he added to his black tea while enjoying a cup with his mother. The Green tea portion of this blend comes from his trips to Japan.
Stanford’s family, including Ben, Natasha, his granddaughter, and Robin, his daughter, helped provide insights of their self taught scientist and inventor family member. This tea will be first available at the newest Muggswigz shop located in Portage Lakes, starting July 1, 2017. The other two Muggswigz shops, located in Jackson Township and Downtown Canton, will carry this tea starting August 1, 2017.
Probably all coffee you have even tasted from El Salvador was washed processed. This is a unique honey-processed El Salvador microlot from finca Las Barreras. Read more about it by clicking the title link.
New Coffee and Tea Bar
When we think of the Portage Lakes area, we think of a strong community with hard working people; an impressive school system; and quaint neighborhoods. With all of the community having students studying hard and people working quite a bit, there should be a place where they can all get together and catch up or study or have that moment to yourself where you aren’t hustled by daily life. This was the attraction we saw here at Muggswigz Coffee and Tea Company.
We plan on opening a shop in the Portage Lakes area very soon. We are looking for a starting staff of baristas who want to share their passion for coffee and tea and also learn more about the craft. We are looking for potential hires with professionalism, great service skills, who think on their feet, and, of course, have a passion for coffee and tea!
We were honored to be invited to judge the best of Antioquia coffee growing competition in Colombia. We cupped hundreds of coffees with a couple dozen other cuppers from around the world. Got to enjoy some great discussions with farmers. And found a coffee we liked so much that we bought the entire production of the farm for the year and were able to pay him three times what he normally gets since the mill was willing to keep his coffee separate! Good job Hector!
