We are ready for the holidays here at A Special Blend! Look at the beautiful decorations made by Anne Proctor and Mary Towery. They really bring cheer into the shop.
We also have a few different holiday items to enjoy as well. You can enjoy a warm Gingerbread Latte or a warm Eggnog Latte along with a tasty eclair. Please come by and enjoy them soon!
Thank you to Triad City Beat for their awesome article about A Special Blend and Chez Genese. Greensboro is showing a lot of inclusive workplaces and, as Grey (one of our employees) states, “We are a part of the community, and the community should be a part of us.”
Thank you to WFMY News 2 for their news segment! We are so proud to have served over 1200 people yesterday at our Grand Opening! If you weren't able to attend yesterday, we hope you stop by sometime this week and enjoy some delicious coffee and pastries.

Women Impacting Greensboro members donated $7,635 to A Special Blend! We can’t even begin to thank this fantastic organization enough.

A Special Blend's 40 crew members have been hard at work training in July and August. They have been learning how to make different types of coffee, serving these coffees, and work skills to help them be successful. Staff, including volunteers and managers, have been hard at work teaching skills such as communicating with customers, using equipment successfully, and much more. Check out the pictures below as we continue to get ready for opening in early October!
