A coffee made in Augusta is now being served at the Georgia governor's mansion. 

Harvest Blend coffee, created exclusively for Golden Harvest Food Bank by Augusta-based Buona Caffe Artisan Roasted Coffee, is now the official coffee of the Georgia governor's mansion.

Governor Nathan Deal and his wife, Sandra, were presented two bags of Harvest Blend during their Servant's Heart Statewide Day of Service visit to The Masters Table Soup Kitchen on Dec. 7. The First Lady enjoyed it so much that she contacted Golden Harvest about serving it at the governor's mansion.

"We're very excited that the First Lady wants to share Harvest Blend with her guests in Atlanta," said John Curry, co-owner and roast master at Buona Caffe. "Our company slogan is ‘Good things happen over good coffee.' We would be thrilled if good things happen for the state of Georgia over a cup of Harvest Blend."

Harvest Blend coffee sells for $15 per 12-ounce bag, with 100 percent of the proceeds returning to Golden Harvest Food Bank. It is available in regular, decaf, whole bean and ground.

"Our vision for Harvest Blend is to see it sold in local stores and brewed in large corporations for employees and guests," said Mariam Baxter, Director of External Relations at Golden Harvest Food Bank. "We are very thankful for Buona Caffe and their endeavors to give back to the local community."

Harvest Blend can be purchased at Golden Harvest Food Bank, at Buona Caffe's coffee bar at 1858 Central Ave. in Augusta, online at www.goldenharvest.org and at www.buonacaffe.com, and at 3 Chicks at 7013 Evans Town Center Blvd. in Evans.
