Looking Back at 2012 (Part II)

 

This post continues our walk through some of our most momentous happenings of 2012. See Part I here. 

What else did Quills do and see in 2012?

We were photographed by and featured in an issue of the smart & stunning Original Makers Club - Louisville

We learned about cupping from champion Cory Andreen

We treated the partying guests at the Speed Museum Lights Off event with a new-fangled super cool mobile coffee bar

We spread the Quills love even further by establishing some new wholesale accounts including Whole Foods Cincinnati, Whole Foods Louisville, Rainbow Blossom, Collective Espresso.... We even got to welcome some of these fine folks to our roastery for a tour and some good sharing.

Two Quills Signature drinks were born: The Smokehouse and Thai No. 5.  Now we looked in the Thesaurus for some other descriptive words besides the somewhat overused "mindblowing" and the following synonyms resulted: eye-opening, astonishing, mind-altering, wonderful... psychedelic? (ummmm maybe)... We think these could all work pretty well.
