Chapel Hill Magazine’s “Best of 2017” Results

Chapel Hill Magazine has announced this year’s “Best of 2017” winners, and we are excited to announce we won “Favorite Coffee Shop” alongside our sister cafe, Caffe Driade. We couldn’t do it without the support of all our customers, thank you for everything! It is an honor to receive this recognition, and we will continue to work hard to bring you great coffee here at Open Eye Cafe.

New Espresso Lip Balm!

We’re excited to announce Carrboro Coffee Roasters have collaborated with Durham handmade body care company, Lo & Behold,  to produce an all natural espresso lip balm. The product is now available at retail outlets throughout the Triangle including Open Eye Café.

Carrboro Coffee Espresso Lip Balm is handmade by infusing freshly ground Carrboro Coffee Roasters coffee in certified organic coconut oil for over 6 hours. This rich, coffee infused coconut oil is then blended with certified organic jojoba oil, mango butter, beeswax, castor oil and vitamin E and hand poured into recyclable .25 oz. tins (plastic free!). The lip balm doubles as an aromatherapy balm, rubbing a small amount on your forehead increases energy. Keeping everything local, the label was designed by Carrboro designer and artist Suzy Porterfield of Davie Paper Co.

Carrboro Coffee Espresso Lip Balm is available at over 30 retail outlets throughout the state. For a complete list of where to find it, visit http://www.loandbeholdnaturals.com/stockists.
