Free Coffee Weeks

By Kiernan



Over the next 3 weeks, on a rolling schedule, most Clovers are going to be giving out a free hot or cold George Howell Montecarlos coffee to anyone who stops in between opening and 11 am.

No strings— we just want to see you all and talk about coffee!! George Howell’s Montecarlos is a single-origin coffee we love for our pour-overs; it’s grown on the side of a volcano in El Salvador (which Ayr and George visited together and you can read about here, here, and here.)

We’ve always taken our pour-over method seriously. Over the past 3 weeks, Chris, Phil, and the Restaurant Ops team have been going restaurant by restaurant to make sure our pouring technique, equipment, and all the little details (water temperature, grind size, distance from edge of counter to cup, etc. etc.) are absolutely spot-on to make the best coffee you’ve ever tasted.

We grind the beans to order and lovingly bloom the grounds. (If you’re in a rush, best to order ahead on the app.)

The schedule for Free Coffee Week is below, and we’ll make sure you remember with some notifications and emails.

Every year, just after Valentine’s Day, we start getting the same question in from customers: Will there be a Passover Box this year? Sometimes the pleas are more direct, sometimes more colorful. The glories of the vegetarian Chopped Liver are a common theme. This year, Sarah, an NYC-based friend of mine said she’s spent so much time thinking about the emails describing last year’s box that she’s DRIVING UP TO BOSTON to claim one!

We have a new sandwich out everywhere today. It’s a take on a Buffalo Chicken sandwich. We use celery root, aka celeriac, this nobbly, gnarled joy of a winter vegetable. We cut it into planks, batter it with panko, and fry it. We’re getting ours from Norwich Meadows Farm, a farm in NY state that’s known for creating really flavorful organic veggies using a cool irrigation system.

Chances are you’ve tried the new Clover Bowls. We’ve been running them since the Spring. After a few tweaks, we landed on a roster we love: the Mediterranean Bowl, the Verde Rice and Bean Bowl, and a Rotating Seasonal Bowl. The bowls have transformed our menu – Josh, a Kendall customer, recently wrote to us, “The beet poke bowl is the best new item I’ve tried at Clover in years. I love the freshness and bite of the mix of flavors.” We’ve also heard some very good suggestions about how to make them even better…
