Tomorrow, at the Brewster cafe, we will be collecting cash donations for the @aclu_mass , and will match the total amount collected. ⠀⠀

Ice chunks in the bay, and a winter storm on the way. Grab your morning coffee and enjoy this day!
If you haven’t had the good fortune of meeting her yet, this is our new cafe manager, Abby. She’s been on the team for about a year and has recently moved into this managerial position; we couldn’t be more excited about having her in this role! In addition to being an amazing barista, a super hard worker, a humble leader, and natural at serving others, Abby’s passion for sustainability is pushing us all to be even better with our consumption and waste. Needless to say, we are grateful to have Abby leading our Brewster cafe staff and are excited about some of the green initiatives she will help us unveil in 2019!
We are down to our last 1/3 of a bag of green beans for this delicious coffee from @campesinomateo grown by Gregorio Quispe Mamani and his wife Vilma Huaman Huaman in the Cusco region of Peru. We won’t let it go out without a bang (ie 9 bars of pressure at 24 seconds). So if you are in Brewster, ask for a single origin espresso to taste the explosion of sweet cherry and peach notes. Or grab one of the few bags remaining online!
Good morning Brewster! It sure is nice to see the sun today ☀️ And now, it’s just 6 months until July 😬
Our limited space at our roastery and cafe does not allow us to prepare food. So while we focus on coffee, we depend on our local partners to cook and bake us our food offerings. In 2018, we started selling delicious, fresh salads from plant-based chef Heather Bailey at @theoptimalkitchen , and now she is making our soups! Warm up today with a delicious bowl of locally sourced carrot ginger soup and some freshly baked bread from @paindavignoncafe or grab a fresh, kale salad.
We have some exciting coffees lining up for our 2019 single origin offerings, and we can’t wait to share. But we can’t help but wonder: what country and/or region grew your favorite coffee in 2018? 🇪🇹 🇧🇷 🇨🇴 🇨🇷 🇧🇮 🇲🇼 🇵🇪 🇪🇨 🇹🇿 🇮🇩 🇬🇳 🇷🇼 🇭🇳 🇲🇽 🇬🇹 🇯🇲 🇺🇸 🇵🇦 🇸🇻 🇰🇪 🇾🇪 🇳🇮 🇺🇬 🇲🇬
Throwback #tbt to Jan 10, 2018, when you could have walked from Brewster to Ptown on a frozen bay. We’ll take the milder temps, but bring on the snow please!
Evidently, when our parents go on vacations, they wear only Snowy Owl Coffee merch.
We’ve been holding onto this post by @dreamofthewoods for a few months now. We can’t understate how many mistakes we’ve made nor the magnitude of the lessons we have learned from them. Cheers to picking ourselves back up and surrounding ourselves with community 🥂 .
"There is no time limit, there are no tests, you never have just ‘one chance’ to prove yourself. Dreams and goals are defined by your persistence in the lulls, and by how many times you pick yourself back up and reshape your vision. You are worthy of the time it takes — and we’ll cheer each other on along the way. Deal? Deal. 🙌🏼" ⠀⠀
It may be pouring here, but somewhere down in the tropics, your future cup of coffee is receiving just the perfect amount of sunlight, cool air, and care from a grower to yield all those delicious flavors that you didn’t even realize you could find in a cup. Stop by today and we’ll do our best to transport you there!
Welcome to the 2019 edition of who wore it best: Peru 🇵🇪 versus USA 🇺🇸 We just want you all to know that we are open until 5pm today in Brewster.
As we reflect on this new year, we give thanks and best wishes to everyone in our greater coffee community; from farmers, cooperative members, captains of boats and drivers of delivery trucks, custom agents and importers, our dedicated production and quality control staff, our hard working, yet always-friendly café staff, and customers and wholesale partners who bring depth, support, and constructive feedback to help us become better with each passing year. We send our warmest wishes for happiness, love, peace, prosperity, security, health and wellness in 2019! Come say hi if you are lucky enough to be at @firstnightchatham !
Making time for the final thrills of 2018.
We know we are not alone in our shock at the sudden closing of Lighthouse Media Company, who owns Cape Cod Magazine. While it’s no surprise that print media has struggled in an increasingly digital world, Cape Cod Magazine has been one of the most consistently beautiful and insightful publications about the people, places, and happenings on our sandbar. The magazine truly paid attention to the local scene, not just the tourist scene, and that’s in large part due to @capecodmarathonmom and the amazing crew that she led. These two shining souls pictured above, @bluelobsterflowerfarm and @flora_chella_design , are spotlighted on the last page of this last edition of the magazine, for the work they have done at our Cafe and Roastery in Brewster. Our followers have heard us gush about them before, but it is so fitting that the Last Word of this magazine is about Meryl and Kate and the mark they have made in our community through the gift of their time, talent, and of course their flowers. Our sincere hope is that the gifted people in our community, like Meryl and Kate, will inspire an entrepreneurial endeavor that will fill that void left in the wake of this publication closure. And, again, thanks to Lisa Conners for the exposure she has given our little business and the many businesses on Cape Cod fighting to keep our population vibrant and strong. We’ll be looking for the opportunity to support the writers, editors, and photographers that made Cape Cod Magazine so special.
We’re back at it today, doing what we love most: bringing you freshly roasted, delicious-tasting coffee in both Brewster and Chatham. Come use those gift certificates and warm up with a hug in a mug!
All is calm. All is bright. 🌅
When both our niece and nephew chose to represent Snowy Owl Coffee at Career Day last week, we were reminded that the best gifts are always immaterial. 💝
