If you can’t make the trip to Fountain City Wisconsin a town of almost 1000 a few miles from Winona you could order Joe’s coffee products online through this link http://www.fortunatascoffee.com/coffees.php The beans are fair trade and organic beans from around the world. The coffee roasting/shop was named after Joe’s maternal grandmother, Fortunata Pintaudi, a 100% Italian woman. http://www.fortunatascoffee.com/

Sunday mornings there is often live music, Noah Hittner performed this Sunday on acoustic guitar with amplification. I enjoyed the music very much and it wasn’t too loud that we couldn’t continue to chat. Noah is very talented writing music and books, be sure to check out his website to learn more. http://www.noahjameshittner.com/
On the big deck I found people I knew and others that I would soon get to know. There was a retired farmer that is a regular there that told me he came because there were a lot of smart people that come to the coffee house. I knew a family there that drove hybrid cars and we started talking about the latest in energy efficient vehicles and it wasn’t long and other people were joining to the conversation.

Normal business hours are 7:00 am to 2 p.m. – closed on Monday. If I didn’t work in Winona no doubt I would be at Fortunatas often.
