Coffee

You will find the same attention to detail and high level of quality in our drink menu that you find in our baked goods. We believe serving great coffee (and making great smoothies) is important;  that’s why we’re proud to support these local roasters: Larry’s Beans and Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters!

Larry’s Beans

The great folks at Larry’s Beans in downtown Raleigh have a clear purpose: “to concoct wondrously luscious works of coffee and make the world better at the same time.” (It says so right on their website!)

Here’s how they do it:
  • They slow roast their beans in small batches to bring out every rich layer of indigenous flavor.
  • 100% of their coffee is Fair Trade, Shade Grown and Organic or Transitional Organic! (Their Organic and Fair Trade practices are certified and audited by Quality Certification Services.)
  • They honor the work of their farming partners by transforming their extraordinary beans into marvelous coffees.

According to Larry (the founder of Larry’s Beans) making the world better goes way beyond Fair Trade organic coffee. Larry’s green-o-vated his Bean Plant with passive solar design, wind-powered vents, rainwater harvesting, fruit bushes, and even dual flush toilets. His coffee is delivered locally in an old school bus that runs on recycled veggie oil and the Bean Plant operates Raleigh’s only gasoline-free 100% biodiesel pump.  Pretty cool! Of course, we wouldn’t serve Larry’s Beans coffee unless we thought it tasted good. And, we do. In fact, we believe it’s some of the tastiest coffee on the planet!

Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters

We are excited to announce that we have also partnered with Boogie Bean Coffee! Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters. Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters is a small batch coffee roaster located in Holly Springs and is owned and operated by Kevin and Ali Littlewood– a great husband and wife team (and you know Josh and I LOVE husband and wife teams!).

Here’s what we love most about Boogie Bean Coffee:

  • Kevin and Ali are really good at what they do– roasting coffee– and they offer a wide range of single origin roasts. Including roasts from India, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Burundi.
  • They always roast in small (even micro) batches to ensure that you get the most flavorful and freshest cup of coffee available.
  • The coffee is good– it’s really, really good!

We love serving coffee from two different roasters and are excited about giving our customers the opportunity to taste a variety of beans from all over the world!

Smoothies

Some smoothies are made with sweetened fruit syrup and a smoothie ”base” that has ingredients you can’t even pronounce. At Stick Boy, we use only fresh frozen whole fruits that make a delicious and thick real fruit smoothie.  Even the base is up to you with choices that include real fruit juices, yogurt, and soy milk!

Our smoothies make a great meal on the run or a perfect after-school snack. Whatever the occasion, our smoothies are a delicious treat that you can feel good about (even if you get it with our homemade whipped cream on top)! Check out our house favorites or build your own.
