For After Dinner


Locally roasted coffees from No. Six Depot Roastery in West Stockbridge. These are delicious, deep chocolaty coffee blends that do equally well in Chemex, French press, or drip coffee makers. They source their coffee from small farmers and make every effort to meet their farmers and buy sustainably/organically grown coffee beans.


Speaking of Chemex: we are fully stocked again on these popular and artistically shaped coffee pots and filters. Chemex products have been made in Western Massachusetts for 70 years!



Holiday Wines!



We now have a full line of Quinta De La Rosa port wines. We carry Ruby, LBV, Tawny, 10-year-old Tawny, and Vintage. These are delicious ports! Find them over the chocolate shelves (they go so so well together). A great after-dinner treat.




We have also added a delightful extra-dry Prosessco from Bellossi available in full bottles and splits.




Thanks for Being a Caring Community 


As we enjoy our holidays with friends and family, it remains important to keep those who are less fortunate in mind.


The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts runs the Check Out Hunger program during the holiday season each year.  Look for the small bill-shaped chits in $1, $3, or $5 denominations at the register. Tear one off and give it to the cashier and your simple donation gets scanned with your checkout. Last year we decided to continue offering the program after the holidays were over, and we're glad we did.  Through October this year YOU contributed an additional $946 to the Food Bank. All of it goes there. Thanks.
