Arbor Day

By Jessica | Monday, April 24th, 2017 at 11:19 am

April 28th is Arbor Day! We would love to do our part for our community and for the earth by helping spread awareness and reducing waste.

We always offer a “Refill” discount to customers who bring their own mug or reuse one of our cups. On April 28th, we will be offering a .50 cent discount on a beverage to anyone who brings their own cup to fill, twice as much as usual! We are also offering ten percent off our Small World Logo Kleen Kanteen.

We’re all in this together!

Death Cream: Inspired by Murder on the Orient Express

By Jessica | Friday, March 24th, 2017 at 3:42 pm

Have you seen McCarter Theatre’s production of Murder on the Orient Express?

Every time I have asked a customer at Small World Coffee if they have seen the play, the theatre patrons have responded resoundingly with rave reviews.

McCarter Theatre asked local food and beverage establishments to create thematic menu items related to Murder on the Orient Express.  In honor of this murderously suspenseful play, we are serving Death Cream, rumored to have been popular at cafes in the 1980’s.  We adapted the recipe for the 2017 production of Murder on the Orient Express.

Death Cream is a mixture of espresso, house-made vanilla syrup and half and half served on the rocks with a sidecar of whipped cream.  It’s far too rich to be good for you!

Death Cream

Death Cream will be available for a limited time until April 2nd!

Enjoy!  Support our Tony-Award winning regional theatre – McCarter Theatre Center.

Tough Chai Carrot Soup

By Jacqui | Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 at 8:47 pm

One of our customers, Jess Stevens, sent us this adapted recipe for a Carrot Soup using our Tough Chai and the garam masala spiced cashews from the Whole Earth Center. If you decide to make this soup, order our Chai “straight up”, which means it will not be served with milk. We make our Chai almost daily in the Small World Kitchen on Nassau Street using freshly cracked whole spices, fresh organic ginger root, a small amount of honey, and a black tea from Rishi. Lots of love and care goes into this delicious recipe. We call it Tough Chai because of the spice factor;it is not a wimpy sweet Chai. A former worldling, John Ward, who now cooks for lucky people in Ithaca, NY, created our original Chai recipe.

Thanks Jess for sharing, the recipe sounds delicious and I think I am going to make some tonight! (more…)

Click to watch: Connect with Anne Reeves, 5.15 from Princeton Community Television on Vimeo.

Those of us who have lived in Princeton for a while will most likely know Anne Reeves, the founding Director of the Arts Council of Princeton. Anne was one of the first people to welcome me to Princeton and bring me into the fold of the local art community. When she asked me to talk with her on her local show Connect, I could not say no. Thank You Anne for all that you have done for our town and for being such a dear friend!
