As a reader of The Wayco Blog, you don’t yet know a lot about our family. But you should know that my wife, Lenny, is a caring, good-natured, sweet woman… after she has a cup of coffee in the morning.
(By the time you read this, I will have had to go into hiding or some sort of witness protection for posting that on the internet for tens of people to see. )
In all seriousness, many of us start our day with a cup of coffee. For some it is a habit, for others, it is for enjoyment, and for still others like my (did I mention beautiful?) wife, it is out of necessity. Nursing a baby at all hours of the night can wreak havoc on a REM cycle. On a recent Saturday morning before running errands with the kids, we stopped for a cup of coffee at Sure House Coffee Roasting Co. in the heart of Wayco.
I’m sure if you are a coffee drinker, you have a favorite place to get your coffee. More than that, I’m sure you have a favorite drink at your favorite coffee place. Some of you might even have a favorite person to make your favorite drink at your favorite coffee place. And even a smaller subset of you schedule your day around when your favorite person is working to make your favorite drink so you can sit at your favorite table at your favorite coffee place. Regardless of where you fall in this spectrum, I recommend you step outside your coffee bubble and stop at Sure House.
The menu is simple but complete. You won’t be hearing orders like, “double ristretto venti half-soy nonfat decaf organic chocolate brownie iced vanilla double-shot gingerbread cappuccino extra hot with foam whipped cream upside down double-blended, one Sweet’N Low and one Nutrasweet, and ice.” Unlike so many coffee places today, at Sure House coffee is the star, not sugar.
The environment is also simple, modern, and welcoming. We enjoyed sitting back and people watching as we sipped our coffee. Lenny ordered a decaf iced coffee and I had a latte. Both were delicious. As you can see below, the iced drinks are served in Mason jars, and the hot drinks are served in handmade mugs (I believe by local artist Moorefield/Mariola Pottery).
One of the really neat things (Do people still say neat? Rad? Sweet?) about Sure House is that you can sign up for a subscription to have bags of their coffee shipped to you each month. Visit their website, https://www.surehousecoffee.com/subscriptions and sign up for 2-4 bags per month. That way, you don’t always have to leave your house for great coffee. I know that those of you who have your favorite barista, drink, and seat are hyperventilating right now, but just relax. You can still have a second cup at your favorite spot.
Our three-year-old and eight-month-old entertained themselves. Sweet Pea brought her sticker book and her own cup so she could pretend to drink coffee like Momma and Daddy. She also spent her time talking to everyone that walked by. Seriously, this one has never met a stranger. Our little man could have actually used a cup of coffee because he napped on Lenny most of the time.
This is a great spot to enjoy coffee and you can tell the staff cares as much about their customers as they do about their coffee. Which is a lot. Thanks for reading, and please keep those ideas for towns and businesses to visit. It’s a wonderful day in Wayco!
“And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken unto all that I command thee, and wilt walk in my ways, and do that is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with thee, and build thee a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto thee.” -1 Kings 11:38 KJV
