about our Coffees
Tanzanian Furaha (Light Roast)
In Swahili, a language spoken by the Tanzanian coffee farmers who grow this coffee, “Furaha” means happiness. This coffee is a product of the Hope Project that operates in the Mbeya Region, where some of the finest arabica coffees of East Africa are produced. It is mellow and brews smooth with a light nutty flavor.
Costa Rican Sonrisa (Dark Roast)
Costa Rica is known for its diverse weather and exciting coffee. Brilliant in flavor thanks to its motherwatering tang, these coffee beans offer a tantalizing aroma and dark body that provides a classic cup of coffee. These strictly hard beans (also known as SHB) are grown in high altitudes around 3,900 feet, rpoducing a slow roasting bean full of density and rich flavors. With the perfect altitude for growing these flavorful beans, Costa Rican Sonrisa captures the best of the slow roasting process.
Bolivian Juspajara (Medium Roast)
“Juspajara” means gratitude in Aymara, a native language of Bolivia, where this coffee is grown. These beans come from the community of Colonia San Ignacio in the Yungas region and are shade-grown in the higher altitudes of the Carrasco La Reserva County in Caranavi Province.They’re depulped and washed using pure Andes mountain spring water, sun-dried on wooden table tops and hand sorted by “palliris” – Aymara women food graders. Juspajara includes the varietals Tipica (90%) and Caturra (10%).

In 2009, Match.com brought Teri Bernet and Tom Panzella of Milford together, creating not just a romantic partnership, but a business one, including their
marriage in August 2018.
Teri, raised in Connecticut, had a busy work life in Florida and Kentucky, working in the cruise-line industry and then for a custom builder. Her marriage to a chef ended and Teri found herself back in Connecticut.
Tom relocated in 1990 to Connecticut after working at a Nuclear Power Plant in Texas for a new business opportunity, Donut Express on Woodmont Road in Milford. After five years, Dunkin’ Donuts bought it and Tom returned to engineering. After another decade or so his company wanted to relocate him to Chattanooga, Tennessee. He decided to leave his engineering job on Long Island, and tried his hand at professional poker.
After eight months or so Teri told Tom he needed a real job. He considered playing poker professionally a real job but Teri disagreed. They agreed to find a business to purchase as a joint venture. Teri found Greenwell Organic Tea and Coffee soon to be renamed Cedarhurst Café.
After finding the Café, Tom and Teri felt it was a good fit and fell in love with it. It was so quaint, the tree, the ambiance and everything. They both agreed they didn’t want to keep the name Greenwell because it was the previous owners last name. Inside the café is a trunk of a red cedar tree that came down in Hurricane Irene and was placed around a supporting column, which is really cool. Being that it is a cedar tree, and the street they live on is Cedarhurst Lane, Cedarhurst Cafe seemed to work.
Cedarhurst Cafe opened in November 2013, and kept a lot of the existing items because they worked; the smoothies, juices, all the coffees. They added to the coffees, to the teas, and especially, to the menu. Cedarhurst expanded beyond the previous vegan and vegetarian offerings to accommodate everyone.
They have a wide variety of both breakfast and lunch items including salads, sandwiches, wraps, belgian waffles, bagels, muffins and much more. The muffins are baked on the premises, the juices are squeezed right in front of you, and they added grab-and-go items. The biscotti are from Kathy’s Cookies in Milford.
The Cedarhurst Cafe is one of those perfect spots to spend hours on your laptop writing that great novel, or taking just long enough to slow down during the work day and take a break. And take a moment to check out the art on the walls. The exhibit changes frequently, and there is always a waiting list of artists who have applied to show work.
