This was supposed to have been posted last night around 9 pm, but my internet connection chose that time to conk out. I cut my losses and went back to work in the woodshop until 10pm. Got up at 5 am to get back at it and just now (it's 6:30 am) remembered that I didn't get this posted. For some of the best coffee roasted right here in Michigan you have got to check out Leelanau Coffee. They don't ship it unless it was roasted 36 hours ago or less. My favorite blend this time of the year is their Christmas Eggnog. Oh man, is it good. My favorite anytime of the year is Manitou Blueberry - when it's brewing it smells like you're baking blueberry muffins. So good.
For one of the largest assortments of nuts from around the world as well as excellent chocolates you need to check out White Pigeon's own claim to fame - The Tasty Nut Shop. It's been in business on U.S. 12 since the 1920s. They don't have a website, but you can call them and they'll ship your order just about anywhere. The number is (269) 483-7566.
