We are happy to announce we have chosen a Grand Opening Celebration date. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 13th at 9:00am. Specials will abound all day. Come check out the space, say hello, drink some coffee, eat a pastry and enjoy the grand opening of Sweet Fields!
We want to give a big shout out thank you, to United Prairie Bank, the Mountain Lake Economic Development Authority and the Southwest Initiative Foundation for funding our new adventure. We couldn't have done it without their help.
Each day we get more and more accomplished. Rachel has been looking at putting together coffee orders, wholesale ingredient orders as well as choosing the remaining equipment for the space. We will be proud to serve Fair Trade organic coffee from Level Ground, a wonderful company. Check out their website at www.levelground.com Our flavored coffees will come from the small woman owned company of Chicago Coffee Roastery. You can find their goods at www.chicagocoffee.com

You know, it really isn't as easy as you would think to make fancy coffee drinks!? Luckily we have had some great help in that department recently, Laurie Hendstadt has been exceedingly patient while taking us through our arduous training regimen; Two double shot lattes a night!! Don't worry though, our milk steaming will be perfected and everything will taste fantastically well, thanks to the hard work before. Luckily Laurie is right next door to us with her friend Jessie Mae who does beautiful work in flowers and candy; two very sweet things for Sweet Fields fans! She and Rachel will be working together on a wedding soon, so check her out if you're in the area and need some flowers to go with your cake! Yesterday; scrubbed floors on our hands and knees, painted, and today we built a table! Everything is coming along smoothly and we look forward to seeing you soon!!!
