This Thursday we'll be hosting Edwin Martinez, owner of Finca Vista Hermosa, for Meet The Farmer: A Discussion on Farming and Direct Trade. We're 45 minutes northwest of Pittsburgh, at 3219 4th Ave Beaver Falls, PA. Anyone passionate about coffee, trade issues, and sustainability is welcome and encouraged to attend.

If I remember correctly, I don't think it was. Tough crowd up here.
Glad to hear that you are hearing about us! Sometimes the distance between the two cities is a little steep (although, for some reason, whenever I say I'm going downtown, people always assume it is Pittsburgh...).
If you get a chance, Jake is now working at 21st in the Strip -- give him a visit!

I was in Western PA for business, and had time for a quick stop on the way back to the airport yesterday. Glad this (old) thread pointed me in the right directions!
Stopped into Espresso a Mano. Very interesting cafe. I walked up and ordered a double, and the cashier pointed me to the menu! AWESOME. They were pulling three different coffees, I think all single-origin espresso, and featured coffees from some of the best roasters in the country - Ritual, Verve, Counter Culture (can't remember if there were others). I was already caffeinated, and so couldn't afford the caffeine from three different shots, or else I would have.
