Celebrating the Craft Event
We are hosting an all day event for the arts and all are welcome! Muggswigz has always had an appreciation for the arts, whether it be shown by supporting local artists work on our store walls, inviting musicians to perform on our stage weekly, and training our baristas to take pride in creating and serving high quality, beautiful artisan beverages. Then we thought, how else can we support the arts in our community? This is how ‘Celebrating the Craft’ came to be.
Muggswigz will be open for the entirety of the event, and some aspects of this event will be held indoors and handicap accessible. You can start holiday shopping, be entertained by baristas and coffee fanatics who showcase their skills for a live audience, enjoy delicious coffee and tea beverages, and enjoy one of the last outdoors events of 2017! We invite you to join us for this awesome community event and support our arts!
Tea blend to honor Akron OH Inventor
We have created a tea blend to honor a local man from Akron, OH for his contributions as an energy inventor and scientist, Stanford Ovshinsky, and the blend is the Stanford Apricot Amalgam.
Stanford Ovshinsky drank both Black tea and Green tea daily, with a habit of adding jam to sweeten it up. Muggswigz’ tea blend is named, ‘Stanford’s Apricot Amalgam’ and is a black and green tea blend to represent the contribution to AC/DC current issues research he worked on. The apricot flavor pays homage to the jam he added to his black tea while enjoying a cup with his mother. The Green tea portion of this blend comes from his trips to Japan.
Stanford’s family, including Ben, Natasha, his granddaughter, and Robin, his daughter, helped provide insights of their self taught scientist and inventor family member. This tea will be first available at the newest Muggswigz shop located in Portage Lakes, starting July 1, 2017. The other two Muggswigz shops, located in Jackson Township and Downtown Canton, will carry this tea starting August 1, 2017.
Probably all coffee you have even tasted from El Salvador was washed processed. This is a unique honey-processed El Salvador microlot from finca Las Barreras. Read more about it by clicking the title link.
New Coffee and Tea Bar
When we think of the Portage Lakes area, we think of a strong community with hard working people; an impressive school system; and quaint neighborhoods. With all of the community having students studying hard and people working quite a bit, there should be a place where they can all get together and catch up or study or have that moment to yourself where you aren’t hustled by daily life. This was the attraction we saw here at Muggswigz Coffee and Tea Company.
We plan on opening a shop in the Portage Lakes area very soon. We are looking for a starting staff of baristas who want to share their passion for coffee and tea and also learn more about the craft. We are looking for potential hires with professionalism, great service skills, who think on their feet, and, of course, have a passion for coffee and tea!
