WEEKLY DEAL: Chinese New Year


HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! Did you know...
The origins of the Chinese New Year celebrations were born out of fear and myth. Legend spoke of the wild beast Nien (which also is the word for "year") that appeared at the end of each year, attacking and killing villagers. Loud noises and bright lights were used to scare the beast away, and the Chinese New Year celebrations were born.


If you can answer this statement by responding on the blog or telling an employee at the roastery you will receive a free tea bag from Harney & Sons.

In 2009, Chinese New Year is the year of the ________. (example... dog, rat, monkey, etc.)

WEEKLY DEAL: Time of reflection


As we say goodbye to 2008, we would like to reflect on what has happened at Vienna Coffee Company this past year...

  • We activated Vienna Coffee's online storefront and are continually adding new items to our storefront (like Harney and Son's Fine Teas)
  • We were happy to add Katie Carroway to VCC family, and sad to see her leave to go to the University of Chattanooga for school.
  • John attends SCAA conference in Minneapolis and Roaster's Guild in Silver Lake where he met new friends and peers who are interested in coffee.
  • We are happy to add Erin to the VCC family as a packaging associate and roaster apprentice.
  • We evaluated our spacial needs at the roastery and decided to extend our lease for 2 years and elected to go vertical for storage needs.
  • We buy our new 35 kilo Roaster.
  • We add Directly and fairly traded La Armonía Hermosa and Fair Trade/Organic Café Femenino Peru/Mexican Coffee to our list of fine specialty coffees we offer.
  • We start an email/newsletter campaign. Click here if you would like to be added to our mailing list for, promotions, new, coffee facts, etc.
  • We add Jamie as Design and Marketing Associate, but she is leaving and will be working for VCC from Chicago.
FOR THE WEEKLY DEAL WE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR YOUR REFLECTIONS ON 2008 AND YOU CAN RECIEVE A FREE 2 oz BAG OF ANY COFFEE, IF YOU COME INTO THE ROASTERY OR LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THE BLOG.

Recycle, Reduce, Reuse

Continuing in the green movement, Vienna Coffee Company uses Recycling Bins. Since the beginning, VCC has recycled all of its corrugated cardboard waste. We also compost all the chaff and scrap coffee (please contact us if you need some nitrogen building coffee grinds for your compost.)

Also our employees use ceramic mugs instead of disposable cups when we enjoy our morning lattes or coffees. (Perks of working at VCC... free coffee!) 

In fact, VCC helped New Providence Presbyterian Church serve Vienna Coffee and Harney & Sons tea (another product VCC sells) in ceramic mugs instead of disposable cups after their morning services and tuesday night's Welcome Table. 

The more we can reduce the amount of waste going into landfills the better! And what better way to make you feel at home at NPPC then reusing a custom made mug every week! If you want to know more about recycling in Blount County check out their site...
