The Roaring Mouse of Hart
Titus Vandezande, owner of The Roaring Mouse, lives near
Hart, MI with his wife Ashley and 3 young children. He began roasting coffee
a year ago and has now become obsessed with the process.
In his own words: ‘I believe that a great cup of coffee should be an experience, instead
of just a caffeine delivery system. I start with the best organically
grown coffees from around the world. I make sure they are purchased by
my suppliers at a price which is fair to the farmer. My single origin
coffees are typically roasted to a light or medium level, since their
individual character will be best tasted in a lighter roast.’
Here at The Roaring Mouse, we believe freshness is a very important
factor in making a great cup of coffee. Coffee tastes the best brewed
within 2 weeks of roasting. We will be providing whole bean coffee
only, which will be roasted fresh every week. All coffees are
available by the ounce, so you can get the perfect amount to last all
In the roaster this week:
• Bolivia Fair Trade Organic – a sweet rich cup with chocolate notes.
Very good with dessert. This was a favorite last week!
• Ethiopia Sidama Fair Trade Organic – a complex cup with berry notes
and a sweet finish. This is one of our favorites!
• Mexico Terruño Nayarita Organic – a bright, rich cup with caramel
notes and a sweet finish. This is another great cup from a group of
small farmers in Mexico. It is claimed to be the best coffee in
Mexico, and the farmers get a high price for the quality.
• Decaffinated Peru Fair Trade Organic – rich and sweet, with
chocolate and caramel notes. A very delicious decaf! This coffee was
decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process. It is a natural,
chemical free process which allows the bean to retain much of its
Come taste the fresh difference! Brewed samples will be available for
We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh
every week. Pre-orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your
favorite coffee before you get some!

Shady Side Farm of Holland
Thanks to Amanda from Maple Moon Farm for the delicious demo last Saturday on how to make corn tortillas. I will have more corn for sale this week, in case you missed out on my limited supply last week. Yes, it’s organic AND non-GMO corn.
This week I’ll be at market with our certified organic beans, all harvested last fall, in the following varieties:
Black Turtle - Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture.
Black Valentine – Taste like kidney beans, great for salads, soups and dips.
Hidatsa Red - (Almost gone–get them now!) Slight nutty taste, use in chili or red beans and rice.
Hutterite Soup - Comfort food, cook fast, creamy soup, baby food.
Jacob’s Cattle - Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili.
Jacob’s Cattle Gold - Hold shape w/ long cooking, soak up other flavors well, soups and stews.
October – (Almost gone–get them now!) Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady - Slightly sweet bean, smooth, creamy texture, good in everything.
Pinto - Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking.
Please let me know ahead of time if you’d like to order 5# bags of any one variety, so that I can pre-bag those and bring them along.
In addition, I’ll have Grassfield Farms raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
Aged Cheddar - You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
Chili – Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot.
Country Dill - A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Crofters (NEW!) - This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
Edam – A variety of Gouda made with skim milk: Elastic, yet firm, this flawless low fat cheese is our best melter, improving any dish.
Garlic & Onion - The most aromatic of herbs. Don’t be the only one in the room to eat this spiced Gouda or you soon will be.
Gouda – A traditional handmade cheese in keeping with West Michigan’s (and our family’s) Dutch culture.
Lamont Cheddar - A rare, natural rind English cheese, named for the Grand River’s first settlement near our farm.
Leyden – Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged Dutch cheese.
If there is anything woolly that you are interested in, it doesn’t hurt to shoot me an email. I can’t take everything along every week, so let me know what you’d like me to focus on. Hope to see you Saturday!
