You’ve heard about mindful eating but what about mindful drinking?  Do you guzzle your coffee or sip and, do you have any idea of what’s in that cup?

Locals here know Ashanti Café and so, we know our coffee too.  Ashanti  owners, David and Amy Wilding, grow their own single-origin beans on their own farm in Zimbabwe where the unroasted coffee beans are hand selected and shipped via Africa, Halifax and Toronto to their final destination in Thornbury where they are then roasted.  They are sold through select retailers and through the Ashanti Cafes in Thornbury and now, in Collingwood too!

The story is quite dramatic involving fleeing the country, gun-toting squatters, disastrous government interference and finally, a commitment to overcome.  Toronto Life ran a good article about this a couple of years ago and you can read it in full here. 

Ashanti Café offers more than just coffee.  Delectable, locally baked goodies, breakfasts, lunches and teas too are all available and can be enjoyed inside or take out.  The Thornbury Café is located at 39 Bruce Street South and is open Monday through Sunday from 7:30 am to 5 pm while the new Collingwood location at 510 First Street is open Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm and week-ends from 8 am to 6 pm.
