Hey Ladies (and Gents)!
We had our first event of 2017 last Friday night and what a great time! We missed if you were unable to make it and hope to see you at our next one. Check out the photos from this awesome evening.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you all the businesses that were spotlighted that evening. This way if you want to go shopping or are in need of the services that were available you can still connect with them. So, here are the Locals We Love: January edition.
A HUGE thank you to all the businesses present at this event. You're energy, engagement and AWESOME tables made this evening ROCK!
Dutch Brothers is finally in Fort Collins and it is AMAZING! I had visited their Loveland location once and truly enjoyed my beverage. So when I heard it was opening in Fort Collins, I could not wait. I went on Dec 28th for their Grand Opening and got my FREE 16 oz drink. Let me tell you - they had it down to the second on this day. The wait was minimal, the customer service was friendly and interactive - it just passed on an energy that you don’t get everyday and the drinks were on point. I knew I would be back.
I heard from some people they thought the energy wasn’t sustainable and it would soon fizzle to just a “typical” customer service experience - well let me tell you, they were wrong! Any time I have been back to Dutch Brothers it has been equally as amazing as their grand opening. The staff are all having a great time, and they make you feel welcome as you place your order and provide an all around a fabulous experience! Even their hot coffee cup lids have motivational statements on them. It brings you a smile as you are drinking your coffee, chai, or other hot beverage.
Did you also know they have something called WHITE COFFEE…this is for all COFFEE and NON-COFFEE drinkers alike. You see, White Coffee is coffee but does not have a coffee taste. White coffee has very low acidity and contains 70% more caffeine than their traditional three-bean blend. They also describe it as having a very “light earthy flavor” which is great for people who don’t care for the taste of coffee. I can attest it is a light earthy and almost nutty flavor. This comes from not roasting the coffee beans as long. Did you know the longer you roast a coffee bean the less caffeine the coffee will have? So those DARK brews have the least amount of caffeine compared to the lighter brews. Try the White Coffee next time you are there.
Another did you know…they offer sugar free in ALL of their signature drinks- that is right, ALL of them! Other places are usually limited in sugar free flavors and they have it in all the main popular ones - even my most favorite COCOMOCO (Coconut mocha).

I will be back soon!
