GoProvidence.com and the Providence Journal bring you Small Bites: Easy-to-Digest Recipes. Anything you could possibly want to learn about coffee — beans, process, tools — they know at New Harvest Coffee Roasters, where they do it all and make cocktails, too.
If you've been in Rhode Island for any amount of time, you've no doubt had their coffee somewhere. They were among the state's early artisan coffee roasters. Founded in 2000 by Rik Kleinfeldt and Paula Anderson with the stated intent “of making great coffee accessible to real people.”
Sophie Short brings us a delicious Peppermint Mocha recipe just in time for Valentine's Day. Check out the full recipe and video:
