“Yes, there is a Johnny!”

February marks an anniversary for us. Four years ago Johny Lolita’s was born. The time has really flown by! First I would like to say Thank You to everyone who has made our business a success. And, a special Thanks to to those of you who have been with us since our humble beginnings out on Hwy. 28 in La Union. NM. Thank You!

Secondly, I would like to take this opportunity to address a question that we still received, at least once a week, all these years later. "Is there a Johnny?” For those that don’t know me, I am John…a.k.a. “Johnny”…as in Johnny Lolita’s. I am the guy that made your latte or prepared your lunch, set up, managed and tore down the the “Artisan” markets. I am the guy that ran around behind the scenes (and still does) doing “stuff”.  I am the guy responsible for the majority of the sarcastic Social Media posts (and all of the offensive ones!). “No, I am not Shawn’s (a.k.a. “Lolita”) employee”. Although I do work for her and she is the boss of me, I like to think I have some sway in the business. After all, I’m the guy who said, “we cold SO run a Coffee Shop!”

Lolita is the creative force behind Johnny Lolita’s. The Master Roaster, baker, candy maker. The beautiful face of Johnny Lolita’s. I am still the guy moving around in the backgrounded snidely muttering comments and opinions.

“Yes, there IS a Johnny!”

Do you know what goes great with Lolita's coffee? Peach Cobbler Crisp!

I've been busy this summer working on great sweets & treats for all to enjoy. One avenue I'm working on is great individual treats for one to enjoy at an event, party or to give as a gift! Many of you know my Lolita's Sin Cake" and I have mastered the ability to create a single serving in a mason jar. So that is my kick...mason jars. They've been around forever and so many are embracing "food-in-a-jar".

This past week I perfected a Peach Cobbler/Crisp in a mason jar. I decided to introduce it at a get together and it was a big hit. Very tasty....not too sweet...but just enough. A homemade graham cracker crust on the bottom, filled with fresh peaches and topped with a crispy crumble. 

How fun to have this on hand at a special party. I can label them for your party or event and provide a simple wooden utensil wrapped together. By the way...this Peach Crisp pairs nicely with Lolita's Blend and Ethiopian coffee. (wink, wink, smiley face)

Tested out on some friends...a big hit!
