CRITICS, UPSTATE | Forgotten Cats Brew
What happens when a former café owner gets involved with a local non-profit for animals? In this case, Forgotten Cats Brew. Claudia Robbins, a volunteer for Forgotten Cats, worked with distributors to create exclusive gourmet blends. Sales benefit the foundation. Cool for Cats is a chocolatey blend of lightly roasted Brazil and dark-roasted Columbian beans. Then there’s the earthy espresso Black Cat Blend and the decaffeinated Calm Cats. Grab the coffee at Marini’s Produce in Wilmington, Broadway Café in Old New Castle, Over Coffee Café in Hockessin, and elsewhere.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Notting Hill Coffee Roastery
124 Second St., Lewes, 645-0733
Owner Amy Felker personally roasts every delicious, globetrotting bean that comes through her cozy Notting Hill Coffee Roastery. From flavored brews like blueberry crème and caramel corn to proprietary country-of-origin blends, it’s clear to see how well Notting Hill knows its bean. It’s also a great spot to pop in for a sip and a bite. Try a puff pastry wrap or a cup of made-from-scratch soup.
