SC&W Introduces Dog-On-Good Coffee

May 18, 2010

After spending years in the coffee industry the owners of Specialty Coffee and Wines have tried to link some of Life’s pleasures to come up with viable products that can benefit and enhance one’s favorite hobbies and passions. For years our family has owned, bred, trained and shown man’s best friend.

So the questions became; How do we link our love of coffee and dogs? The idea is creating a specialty coffee line to sell to coffee and dog lovers that would also help our four legged friends became very appealing. Thus the creation of Dog-On-good Coffee

Using our years of experience in the coffee industry, we’ve created a wonderful line of coffees that feature dogs on the label. The purpose being a means to offer dog lovers, dog clubs, trainers, pet supply companies and charities a great way to support their favorite breeds as well as supporting all animals, especially those in need of homes and medical attention.

How we do this.
1. A portion of all our coffee sale proceeds are donated to the ASPCA by SC&W.
2. We’ve created breed specific labels for dog clubs. Dog Clubs can become dealers in order to purchase our coffee at wholesale and sell it at retail and to use the proceeds as they see fit to help support their club. Many of which have excellent breed Rescue Programs and other charitable efforts.
3. Vendors – Most dog show vendors are also dog lovers, if not breeders themselves. So why not sell coffee at your next dog show event and not only support your breed, but also know that your efforts are helping many dogs.
4. Trainers and pet supply companies can also become dealers in order to sell Dog-On-Good-Coffee to its customers whom will not only be pleased with this great coffee but to know your efforts are helping animals all over the country.
5. Charities supporting not only dogs, but ALL animal rescue efforts can be considered as potential dealers for Dog-On-Good-Coffee. Just give us a call and tell us about your charity. Charity specific labels can be created for charitable events with adequate lead time.
6. Other clubs, civic associations and churches, whatever your charitable cause, we’d love to hear about your efforts and how possibly, Dog-On-Good-Coffee can help generate profits for your charity. If we can help support your efforts, you’ll be helping support ours, so we welcome your inquiry.

Sincerely,
Bella, Charlie, Bear and Celeste & Harry Weeks

Wine just ruined my wardrobe!

March 27, 2010

Lots of wine related products out there. Some accentuate the wine-drinking experience. Some are mere decor to impress your friends and drinking buddies. On occasion you come across a simple idea the makes sense. It works when you need it, and becomes really obvious when you need it but don’t have it. Bringing back a few bottles from your trip to Napa? Heartbroken that some of those bottles didn’t make it back? Worse, you packed them along with your wife’s favorite outfits. The dog house for you, unless…

“The Wine Diaper,” it’s a biodegradable travel bag for wine lined with absorbent material. It helps protect your wine in travel, but if breakage does occur, the absorbent material will absorb up the entire contents of your bottle, keeping your clothing and valuables from being ruined. Compact, lightweight, inexpensive–and reusable, if no breakage occurs, the Wine Diaper is the perfect travel accessory for anyone traveling with wine or any liquid breakables.

The Wine Diaper retails for about $13.99 for 3 with wholesale pricing available for the retailers.

The Epitome of Foodie Magazines, Gourmet, to Close

October 6, 2009

The New York Times reports that Condé Nast announced it would shut down Gourmet and three other magazines: the parenting magazine Cookie and the wedding publications Elegant Bride and Modern Bride.

More casualties of the demise of print, but also as sign that the overt affluence of the lifestyle that Gourmet projected has fallen out of favor during these economic times. According to The Times, Gourmet was a money-loser and was outsold at the newsstands by Condé Nast‘s Bon Appétit magazine. With a history for keeping alive unprofitable products, this time it appears Condé Nast is not counting on a recovery for the ailing print industry.

We will miss the beautifully photographed food spreads, the exotic travel, and the “finer things” that gave Gourmet its style and character. So long Gourmet, you will be missed.
