When it was time to go, I stopped to talk with the girls at the counter, I wanted to thank them for feeding me such good food!
It was clear as we all talked there at the front counter, something good was happening. Connection. Life!
It was so wonderful to be around others who are happy and smiling, who look you in the eye when they talk to you. It's like finding home when you have been away for a very long time. It felt good. It was clear they loved being there by the twinkle in their eyes. As we chatted, I even had the opportunity to meet Raaji Disasa, a local coffier. He told me about his family, who produce fine coffee in Ethiopia! He told me he had just traveled back from a long trip to get fresh coffee! His coffee is available with other local artisans items, right there at Yo' Cup in Laurens.
I was encouraged to check out Yo' Cup in Clinton for a different but equally great experience...
