Coffee or tea, anyone?

One of the things that our guests continually appreciate here at the Bridges Inn at Whitcomb House is the quality and variety of coffee and tea we have available.

Available 24/7 in our dining room (self-serve):
      An assortment of Keurig K-cups and tea galore.

     K-cups for our Keurig maker:
       Regular coffee, varying strengths
       Decaf and Half-Caf coffee
       Flavored coffee (e.g., vanilla and hazelnut)
       Chai Latte
       Hot Chocolate

     A variety of tea selections and a hot-water heater (boils water fast):
         English breakfast tea
         Black and green tea
         Flavored black tea (e.g., peach and orange spice)
         Decaffeinated black and green tea and flavors, too
         Caffeine-free tea (e.g., lemon, chamomile, mint)
         We always have plenty of Stash Tea

Speaking of Stash Tea, we participate in the Stash Tea Bed & Breakfast program. We accept Stash Tea stay-one-night-second-night free certificates. For details, check out Stash Tea online or on specially marked tea packages.

Served with breakfast, and well before:
   Brewed coffee from fresh roasted coffee beans from Prime Roast in Keene.
   We normally brew Demon roast or Ethiopian roast, but we get other roasts and blends as well.
   We always have decaf from Prime Roast available, too.
   Many of our B&B guests stop off at Prime Roast to get coffee, ground or beans, before they head for home. Check out their exciting new project: Prime Roast Company - Brick House Roastery.

We start by grinding beans and then perk each pot fresh each morning. And we perk as many pots as we need. We have Bridges Inn mugs as well as cups and saucers to match the china pattern we're using that day. If your schedule doesn't allow you to stay for breakfast, you can ask for your coffee to go.


We have sweeteners to fit most every palate (or diet): cane sugar (granulated, organic, and cubes); Splenda, Equal, and Sweet 'N Low (saccharin); Truvia (stevia); plus equivalents. We also have local honey, which some tea-drinkers request.

We offer light cream, whole milk, and fat-free milk.

In-room coffee or tea:

So that guests can make in-room coffee any time of day, every guest room has a coffee maker, cups, and supplies on cozy wicker tables with matching chairs. Shown below are coffee stations in the Slate Bridge Room (top) and the Coombs Bridge Room (bottom). 

So if you're a coffee or tea lover, we think we've got you covered here at the inn. And if you drink neither, maybe you'd like a cup of hot chocolate.
