Back in the day, people had milk delivered to their doorstep.
As of Monday, if you live in the Fort Wayne area, you can get gourmet coffee delivered to your doorstep, either ground or whole bean, harvested in the Andes Mountains of Colombia and roasted and packaged here.
The service is the brainchild of Chef Eric Braun, who runs a personal culinary service in Fort Wayne called KneedaChef. The coffee is available in 12-ounce packages in dark/espresso, medium, light and decaf roast. It costs $14.95; the delivery charge is $2. You can order it online at http://tinyurl.com/pmv7x5u.
There's a sign up in Waynedale at 6247 Bluffton Road, where Nino's Bar and Grill used to be, that a Wings Etc. is coming to that location.
