Once upon a time in Norwich, Connecticut, the birthplace of CCR, where the rich history of American coffee and chocolate intertwines with local traditions and the enchanting beauty of the Rose of New England.

Discover the origins of coffee and cacao in Norwich, nestled along the Thames River. This vibrant trading cove, where Native Americans and early settlers converged, became the epicenter of a revolution in hot beverages. Dive into the story of Christopher Leffingwell, a visionary entrepreneur who imported and roasted coffee and cacao, becoming a pioneer in the production of American chocolate.
