Re: “Krupnikas, a Lithuanian-style liqueur, produced in Durham

We can buy Krupnikas now in the ABC store in Pittsboro. If you ask them, they might carry it in your ABC store too. Try it. It's always great to see a new locally produced product using locally sourced food. Thanks Rim!

Re: “Sipping chocolate at Cocoa Cinnamon

Elizabeth (and Jeremy), thank you so much for covering Cocoa Cinnamon (again)!

And thanks for bringing family and friends.

The chocolates we use are single origin, so like single origin coffees they have distinct characteristics, which vary greatly. For the most part people come in and try a few different origins and find the range of what they like. We feature and rotate many of our items, so people can keep tasting new origins. A lot of people like to try and contrast different drinking chocolates the way they would our coffees. And we are still rolling out spice based signature drinks for the drinking chocolates, espresso based drinks and hand poured coffees.

We source milk locally from Homeland creamery. And milks change slightly in character depending on what the cows are eating. :) it's true. We've noticed it's a little grassier lately.

We made some headway in the outdoor seating department yesterday. We now have our first canvas covering rigged for the outdoor tables that Maryah Smith-Overman, Areli, William Lum and a team of folks hand built out of the wood from the old Brightleaf shutters. We just need to weld some loops on the table bases so we can lock them up at night and then we'll have a whole bunch more seating!

We are still in a beta unfolding process, so stay tuned, and thank you again so much for writing!

Cocoa Cinnamon

p.s. we came this way via Jackson county near the Smoky Mountain National Park....where there were more dogs than people. Our relationship to Durham goes back to 2001 via work.
