I’ve been wanting to put together a podcast for Texas Coffee People for a long time, but haven’t really done much about it until recently.
The podcast is called “The Dose”, and should be ready within a week or two. You will be able to find it on iTunes as well.
I have no idea how often these podcasts will take place, but I’m hoping it will be monthly.
I’m also hoping to have the first one finished before the end of this month. If you have some news for us, we’d like to hear about it. Grand openings, events, promotions, sales, interesting people, interviews, and almost anything else that you could imagine taking place on a podcast: if you have any, we’d love to hear from you.

Oak Cliff couple take coffee beans to customers’ doors
“…Here comes coffee time and the man with the goods.
There goes Shannon Neffendorf, cruising the sleepy streets of North Oak Cliff, hanging bags of freshly roasted coffee beans at customers’ front door.
“I love delivery day and the way it makes the car smell,” says the co-owner of Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters, out and about on his pre-dawn rounds.
He and his wife, Jenni, hope this milkman-style service helps their budding business stand out as more than another joe in the world of java…”
“…The couple launched the venture not long after their marriage. And in just over a year, they have seen it steadily grow to include about 75 residential customers, 10 businesses and offices, and five commercial accounts that sell their beans, serve their coffee or both…”
And here’s my favorite part…
“…They aren’t alone in North Texas. Texas Coffee People ( tx-coffee.com) lists 12 coffee roasters in the Dallas area on its Web site, which seeks to “promote a community of serious coffee people in a state which most would consider to be a coffee wasteland…“
Kudos to Shannon and Jenni (and the Oak Cliff Brand) for the article! (and thanks for the plug, whoever was responsible)
And let’s not forget to give you Oak Cliff’s website link: http://www.oakcliffcoffee.com/
Can YOU find the face in the beans?

I received an email over the weekend letting us know about Opening Bell Coffee from Pascale. He writes,
Hi guys! Love your website and would like to be listed as a coffee retailer in Texas. We are actually celebrating our 6th year in business on March 15 We have 2 locations in Dallas, TX! Thanks so much, Pascale
So, this is the first time I’ve heard of this place, but apparently they were voted Best Liquid Assets(2005), Best Coffee House(2006), and Best Atmosphere(2006) by the Dallas Observer, and Best Coffee House(2007) by D Magazine.
The Dallas Observer website has a description that reads:
Formerly Standard and Pours. What started as a yuppie coffee haunt in 2003 has turned into a pretty happening live music spot for acoustic bands and singer-songwriter types. Adding beer and wine didn’t hurt. New are DJs on Wednesday nights.
The description reminds me of what Ruta Maya was trying to do in San Antonio before they closed (I never did visit the original Austin location, so I can’t comment on that).
The have directions to their location, which you can find on their Website.
Opening Bell Coffee has been added to our List of Retailers.
