We are going to Holland

Diane, Loretta and Theo are all turning 50 years old this year and we have been tossing the idea around to go to Holland for this half a century landmark birthday.
We are planning to visit Theo's family and of course we would love to visit Amsterdam.
Amsterdam... the city that really never sleeps, the Rembrandt museum, Van Gogh museum, Vondel park, boat rides, Red light district and of course the coffee shops....
Liberal Amsterdam was a topic of discussion on one of O'Reilly's show on the Fox news television network.
Bill and his blond bimbo newscasters think that the liberal marijuana laws in Holland and in particular Amsterdam are failing and the drug lords are taking over the streets in the capital city of the Netherlands.
Wouldn't it be nice if these so called "shock newscasters" get there facts strait and do some real research and come with some real fair and balanced news shows...
As a response to this unfair broadcast a short facts video clip was made and of course we at the Coffee Plantation would love to share this with you.

Bill O'Reilly is a douche bag....and we are going to Amsterdam

A happy customer....

We at the Coffee Plantation love feedback from our customers....
Read what Jay and his family had to say after visiting our Key West coffee shop


We just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic coffee, breakfast & ambiance on our last day in Key West. We definitely picked the right place to bid adieu to the Southernmost city in the Continental US.

I loved hearing all about culinary school in Virgina along with the family stories from up the coast in NY. Congrats again on your success & we hope to see you again in the future.

Thank god for local coffee shops, stores & restaurants. We're proud to say that's all we patronized on our trip last month in the Keys from Homestead to Mallory Square.

Take care & continued success.

Yours truly,

Jay Mastrud & the family (Heidi, Bea, Gus & sister Sue Kowolkowski from Chicago)

Thank you Jay...
You made our day!

Turtle Released

A recovered loggerhead sea turtle named after President Barack Obama was released in the Atlantic Ocean off Key West on Saturday.The turtle was rescued on Key West's Higgs Beach on Jan. 19, the day before Obama's inauguration. It was then transported to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon.Obama the turtle suffered from a severe intestinal impaction, which caused a body cavity infection, Turtle Hospital administrator Ryan Butts said. Because of the timing of turtle's rescue, officials thought it made sense to set it free on the Fourth of July."The turtle came in at a historic moment and was named after the new president, so we thought it was appropriate to release 'Obama' to freedom on America's Independence Day," Butts said.About 100 people watched the turtle's release Saturday."We got the turtle down on the sand and it took off," Butts said. "It was so excited and swam away with all the energy it had."
