Tom Helm is a Loveland coffee roaster. On Friday his  Brewsworthy Coffee is partnering with a local ceramicist for a night of coffee tasting and education about pottery making, coffee roasting, and various coffee brewing methods.

Visit the Q&C Studios on West 2nd Street, taste some great coffee and learn about pottery making!

This event is free to the public, and while items will be available for sale, this event is intended for education and fun. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Helm says this about his coffee, "We have NO stale roasted beans lying around. We roast your coffee, to your specifications, when you order it. If you want a light roast, an espresso roast, or any roast in between, we make sure you receive your coffee the way you want it!


Loveland is losing it

June 22nd, 2010 by Bob McDonnell

I love that Loveland has many businesses that have been around for years. Some are owned and run but second and even third generations of the same family. It was with a heavy heart that I recently reported on the closure of one if the mainstays of the downtown Loveland retail community.

Loveland is losing it.  Penner’s Appliance is no more.   Harvey Penner started the business in 1969, and sold it four years ago.  I think it was about 1972 when I first purchased a washer and dryer from Harv.  Over the years, I have gone to him for stoves, refrigerator and a second washer and driver.

Harvey was not the cheapest.  The big boxes could beat him by a few bucks, but he was LOCAL.  He knew who his customers were, and called them by name.

I talked to Harvey in the parking lot of the business today.  He still owns the building, and is trying to get it ready to be rented out. It can be used as one unit or divided into up to five separate businesses.  The nice thing is that it has parking spaces in front that are not on the street.

Thanks Harvey and family for your service to Loveland as a businessperson, civic leader and church member.   We all need to remember to support local businesses.

Call Harvey Penner at 667-9983 if you are interested in retail space downtown Loveland.
