Barren Ground Coffee celebrates first year
Yellowknife, Northwest Territories - Local beloved small batch artisan coffee roaster and 2018 Breakout New Business of the Year nominee Barren Ground Coffee (BGC) will celebrate their first year in business this Sunday, November 25 during their regular 11-3 shop hours.
The public is invited to join in on the possibly over hyped celebrations! BGC will be serving free locally roasted drip coffee, giving out free Fat Fox scones with free clotted cream and free jam (only 50, so first come first free serve), and handing out free collectible buttons.There will also be free high end door prizes and possibly free surprise discounts.
In addition, BGC will use the anniversary to launch their new 2019 handcrafted personalized pottery mugs. They are designed and created by local artisan Beth Harden of Shake a Tail Feather. BGC will also have a number of manual coffee brewers, new crew cut sweaters and t-shirts from Erasmus Apparel, toques, and other awesome mugs for sale.
“We are pleased with how the north has embraced fresh roasted specialty coffee during our first year in business,” said Eric Binion. “As a small business, we didn’t know what to expect, but our first year has shown that northerners will continue to support startups in the north. We feel we have built a bit of a foundation of loyal customers that will help us grow our business and continue to allow us to develop and offer new products and services”.
Barren Ground Coffee couldn’t have survived without the help of other Yellowknife and NWT small businesses. BGC is forever grateful for the businesses that assisted them throughout their first year. Mahsì!
