Here’s to you, Mom.

Mother's Day

Supporter of dreams, reader of bedtime stories, bandager of boo-boos – the first time she met you she knew she would love you forever. A woman like no other. She is the basis of trust, the foundation of comfort and the embodiment of unconditional love. Time and again she showed us what it meant to be selfless. This one goes out to her.

{Mom} (n): The hardest, lowest paid, yet most rewarding job in the world.

Being “Mom” is a transcendent and deeply rooted relationship. Biological moms, step moms, foster moms, friend’s moms – it’s not the title that is important, it’s the connection. There is not a dollar amount or special deal that quite captures the sentiment, but Mom deserves recognition and we want to help. Here are a few ways to make her feel special this Mother’s Day.

1. Give the gift of amazing coffee.

Head over to our e-store and check out the selection of specialty coffee, PT’s swag, and tasty chocolate bars. Enter promo code THANKSMOM at checkout to get 20% off your purchase. This offer is available online Friday, May 1 – Sunday, May 3 to ensure shipping by Mother’s Day.

2. Enjoy a special brunch together at PT’s at College Hill.

Join us at College Hill for a special Mother’s Day brunch. Café manager Forrest Wright is crafting an exclusive menu of delicious fare and drinks you won’t want to miss. Added bonus: you don’t have to do the dishes afterwards! We are located at 1625 SW Washburn Ave. in Topeka, KS.

3. Treat her to coffee and a pastry at PT’s at the Crossroads.

Spending Mother’s Day in Kansas City? Join us in the Crossroads Arts District for a truly sweet deal. Bring Mom in for coffee and get 15% off any pastry item. We are located at 310 Southwest Blvd. in Kansas City, MO.

From all of us PT’s Coffee Roasting Company, Happy Mother’s Day. We hope it’s magical!
