I, personally, own two vacation rental properties in Down East Maine… both in Machiasport. I love being a host and love to make our guests’ stay special. Whenever I can, I leave a little welcome gift for my guests. Most often, whenever available, it’s locally roasted Bold Coast Coffee.
The local coffee company is a family affair, with the beans roasted in the family patriarch’s garage turned roaster. I was lucky enough to have a tour of it a few years back and the spotlessly clean little ‘factory’ smelled just heavenly. The beans are sourced in Costa Rica, on a farm owned by the coffee company where the beans are picked by hand — so there is a direct link straight from the plant to the coffee cup.
The coffee is available in several roasts — from decaf to espresso and everything in between.
It is available for purchase at several stores in Maine (listed below) and also from the website.
