Still open, with limited contact

How’s it going out there? Are you finding some joy among the gloom?
We here at Sunflower are taking the rest of this to sloooow down and limit our (and your) exposure to Covid19 even farther.

We’ll serve at #wsufoodtruckplaza this Thursday, then go DELIVERY ONLY the rest of the month. You can get our coffee delivered to your face Thurs-Sun from 7:30am-1:30pm through April. Let’s #slowthespread while enjoying our coffee at home.
Find us on www.wichita2go.com and DoorDash! We’ll be offering our beverages, snackies, shirts and other goodies for safe, local delivery in the Wichita area.

Take care of yourselves, and keep in touch with us at sunflowerespressoict@gmail.com. We miss you and hope to see you soon!

A time for flexibility

These days remind me of the Albert Camus quote, “Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.” Our community’s efforts to stem the tide of Covid19 are asking all of us to bend, to change, and to rearrange ourselves to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. Like many of your favorite local businesses, we’re adjusting and trying to meet that challenge. 

Sunflower Espresso has always been dedicated to maintaining a high standard of cleanliness; now, we will practive even more vigilance by sanitizing and bleaching throughout our services. As we are a business that serves in the open-air, this is a good way to get coffee, treats, and minimize exposure.

We will be out at some of our usual locations during this time, including the downtown Urban Pop-Up Park and Wichita State University. Due to CDC recommendations, some of our events have been canceled or rescheduled like the Old Town Farmers’ Market and the Lake Afton Public Observatory.

We hope during this time to do what we can to help encourage whatever practices are best for us and our community. If we incorporate any other changes, we will happily keep you informed.

If you are unable to visit us in person during this time, know we’ll ship your coffee and favorite Sunflower items to you from our online store. We offer free local delivery, and modest shipping everywhere else. 

Love, Kate and the Sunflower Team

Flannel Season is here!

Cozy coffee-drinking weather is finally here, and so is a new seasonal blend from PT’s Roasting Co. Flannel Season is the blend you’ll want to cuddle up to as the leaves fall. It’s warm and comforting without being too heavy.

PT’s describes Flannel Season this way:

Our roasting team set out to create a rich but well-balanced cup with crisp acidity, landing on a three-bean blend of coffees from Central America and Eastern Africa that captures the essence of fall. Expect sweet caramel and fig aromas, rich nutmeg and raisin in the cup, golden apple acidity and a finish reminiscent of shortbread.

We’ll brew Flannel Season on the bus and sell it by the bag all fall. Plus, you can always grab some for yourself on our merchandise page.
