For those of you that are addicted, let me introduce you to Drinking Beans Coffee Shop otherwise known as Drinkin’ Beans or DN BZ as the closest place to get snap-you-awake java. My former 4th grade student, Zach, (pictured here) created this space a year ago. I’m so proud of him. It’s a relaxing place, half way to Asheville, full of great artwork and newspapers to read with outside seating, too, looking at the mountains. For the coffee connoisseur, Zach has freshly roasted coffee from the main coffee growing regions just an 7 minute drive away. You might not get the hug I got from him, but DN BZ will welcome you!
