Bonnie and Kevin Brownell have been living in FishHawk Ranch for five years. When we moved here from Chicago we where looking for a place to live that had personality as well as great amenities and schools. Living in a big city we where ready for a community that felt like a small town. However, FishHawk had more than just a small town feel with personality, it had the conveniences of a bigger city just minutes away. FishHawk has continued to grow while maintaining its small town feeling and adding even more great things to do and enjoy. Our two boys absolute love the new Aquatic club and the open space in Park Square.
The concept for DaSilva’s Coffee House and Roastery began to take shape in my imagination several year’s ago while living in Chicago. Like many people, I fell in love with great coffee in the 90’s as the specialty coffee industry begin to grow. One day while on a sales call, I visited the “Newport Coffee House” in the suburbs of Chicago. The Newport Coffee House was not like the standard coffee shop. They roasted their own coffee in the store. As I read and observed more about the art of roasting I became more and more interested in coffee. That started me thinking about opening my own coffee shop. I spent about seven years planning and educating myself on the coffee industry before I ever started DaSilva’s. I wanted to make sure we got things right, and so far the feedback has been extremely positive.
Having a roster in the store gives DaSilva’s the ability to produce truly fresh coffee while creating a unique atmosphere. In addition, it allows them to host roast-your-own nights when you can pick out your own green coffee beans, roast them, package them, and take them home with a personalized label. Roast-your-own-nights are a great idea for holding a party or a night out with your friends as well as a great way to create personalized coffee gifts for birthdays and holidays.
