MULETOWN ROASTED COFFEE + THE FACTORY BLEND
My mornings always start with coffee. Like many of you, the act of drinking coffee has long been a part of my daily routine. So, I was excited when approached with the idea of crafting my own organically-sourced blend. If you’ve visited The Factory lately, you’ve probably enjoyed a cup of our house coffee, which is roasted by Muletown Roasted Coffee, based in nearby Columbia, Tennessee. I drink it at home, in the car, at work (and I’ve noticed most of our staff does as well. If you happen to drop by when we are having a meeting, you’ll find most of us taking sips between taking notes). We have several former baristas and coffee aficionados on our team and we all agree: our Factory blend is borderline addictive. The flavor is smooth, yet dark, with a buttery feel and a slight dark chocolate finish. Delicious.
You can purchase The Factory Blend at our café or from our online store.

Jack-O-Lantern Farm + Community Supported Agriculture
Alabama Chanin strives to support local farmers whenever possible—especially now that we’ve opened The Factory Café and are sourcing local and organic ingredients for all of our dishes. Our kitchen manager, Arron, has built a strong relationship with our friends Steve and Connie Carpenter, who operate nearby Jack-O-Lantern Farm.
Jack-O-Lantern Farm has launched their 2014 Community-Supported Agriculture box program—and The Factory is a pick-up location. Steve set up payment plans for pre-ordered boxes. While Quantities vary, the amount of food in a CSA box-usually a 1/2 bushel-is designed to feed a family of four for a week.
To sign up for Jack-O-Lantern's 2014 CSA Box program follow this link.
Choose your pick-up location (The Factory), your share (full or half), add farm-fresh eggs to your box (if you wish), and then pick a payment plan.
