One Nice Surprise After the Other

Surprise Number One. I had no idea that nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee was a five-star luxury resort by the name of Blackberry Farm. I had never heard of the place until Mr. and Mrs. Big Mike went there on a recent vacation. And because they know that I may never get to Blackberry Farm, they brought me back a pound of coffee. Which, in my book, is the next best thing.

Surprise Number Two. I had never heard of H.C. Valentine Coffee Company until I received the coffee which is specially crafted for Blackerry Farm by Valentine. H.C. Valentine is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

And all this time, I thought Wisconsin was famous for cheese.

Any-hoo, the coffee is smooth, balanced, rich and what one might expect to be served at 5-Star Luxury Resort like Blackberry Farm. If one were to ever get the chance to go there.

For now, I'll drink my coffee and be grateful.

Here's to a wonderful Sunday and a great week!


  1. H.C. Valentine is owned by Royal Cup Coffee in Birmingham, Alabama.

  2. Wow, I didn't know that. Thanks for letting me know!
