Meet Mozart’s People: Colton Massey

One thing we like to do here at Mozart’s is work with our employees. We give them the flexibility to work full-time, part-time, some time, here and there — whatever works best for them. This is why, if you come often, you may see people for a season, or just on Saturdays, or for a straight year and then never again.

Firecake and Coffee and Our Independence

Back when our forefathers shouted “… no more taxation without representation”, they were complaining about Britain’s tax on tea.  Well, that’s when coffee became our national drink. It wasn’t a fancy Sumatran pour over or a spiced vanilla latte … just simple black coffee drank by colonists acting out their red-blooded, new-found American patriotism.  At Valley Forge, holed up for 6 months with no hope in sight, Washington turned our first militiamen into real soldiers that would go on to take back town after town from the British. Those troops were saved from complete starvation on primitive baked goods, what they called firecake – a mix of flour, water, a little bit of salt – baked on rocks in the fire.  

 

So, as we celebrate this 4th of July, toast our country’s birthday with some coffee and cake.  It’s a wholly American thing to do. 

 

We think its fitting that on this Independence Day, we’ve been recognized as the Best of the Best for both our Bakery and Coffee Shop.  George Washington might not recognize the coffee … or even the cake. But, we’re proud to be an Austin icon for 25 years, remaining fiercely independent along the way.  God Bless America.
