Catching a Vibe at Vesta Coffee Roasters

Happy Sunday, friends.

Welcome to the second month of 2020! I hope January treated you kindly. I e-bumped into so many people on Instagram complaining about how long the month was for them, but that wasn’t my experience at all. I solidified my content plan for the year, bought a new couch for my place, and rekindled my passion for blogging. January was good to me.

I stopped by Vesta Coffee Roasters with my mom. Vesta Coffee Roasters strives to source and provide the finest quality traceable, fresh-crop coffees from around the world.

On the Vesta Coffee Roasters Web site, you’ll learn that Vesta is the Roman goddess of hearth, home and family, and the beloved sister of Zeus. Vesta Coffee Roasters explains that Vesta’s presence is symbolized by the sacred fire that burned at her hearth and temples.

I have a long list of pretty plates and sweet sips to share with you, so be sure to subscribe to my blog (in the sidebar) to receive a notification when I post next! Thanks for stopping by for breakfast. Enjoy your day!
