White Campfire Mug Recall

Posted by on August 7, 2019

Hey Friends,

We were recently made aware that the white Frothy Monkey Campfire Mugs currently being sold in stores and online were printed with an ink that may wash off in the dishwasher – specifically when using Cascade pods. The product was not labeled with instructions to hand wash only and the thought of faulty printing being a disappointment to all the people who bought these mugs to mark a memory makes us feel the saddest! If you purchased a white campfire mug since March of this year and have had any issues with the imprint coming off, we would love to replace that mug for you, or issue a full refund. Please fill out the form below and we will replace your mug free of charge!

And if you have one of these mugs sitting on your shelf with the logo intact, be advised that these are hand wash only so please protect that monkey and keep it out of the dishwasher!

If you have any further questions feel free to contact shop@frothymonkey.com

LIMITED EDITION: CHACON COSTA RICA NATURAL

Posted by on August 7, 2019

We taste sugarcane juice and candy, with an abundance of blackberry jam flavors, followed by a blood orange acidity and deep red plum notes.


This coffee is a Perla Negra Natural, meaning the coffee seeds dried in the fruit, skin intact, for 10 days under constant rotation before being transferred to bags for 2-3 days and finishing on raised beds. Thanks to this method, it boasts a big flavor, intense fruitiness, and rich sweetness., and it makes for a big, rich, exotic cup.

Our newest revelation takes us to some of the leading innovators of Costa Rica, Oscar and Francisca Chacon. In 2008, when an earthquake cut off water access for their Las Lajas micromill, the Chacons improvised. Knowing that other countries like Brazil and Ethiopia had success with natural or pulped-natural methods that required less water, the Chacons decided to try it with that year’s harvest. The results were surprising — when tasted alongside their traditional washed offerings, the naturally processed coffees stood out for their fruity, exotic cup character.

The Chacons have since led the way in Costa Rica’s micromill revolution. Experimenting with a wide range of drying times and methods has given these coffees their names (like “red honey” or “Alma Negra Natural”). Producers like the Chacons exemplify the forward-thinking creativity that makes coffee and ever-intriguing beverage. Even more so, they represent hope for coffee producers everywhere who face increasing challenges in the decades ahead. Rather than fold in the face of adversity, the Chacons reinvented their 180-year-old farm, preserved its legacy, and brought new and exquisite coffees into the world.

Chacon Costa Rica Natural will be available for a limited time at all Frothy Monkey locations and from our online store!

House-made BAGELS

Posted by on April 17, 2019

After spending years searching for a bagel in Nashville that lived up to our standards, we decided to take matters into our own hands. We have perfected our recipe, and our bakers (BAKERY by frothy monkey) are now making Frothy Monkey bagels in house to create the perfect balance of flavor and texture. A Frothy Monkey bagel is delicious on its own, or served up toasted with cream cheese. With their soft, chewy texture and fantastic crust they also make a tasty sandwich even better.

In true Frothy Monkey fashion, our bagels are made from simple, thoughtfully-sourced ingredients, and baked daily right here in Nashville, TN. Each bagel requires a three day process to achieve artisan perfection, and we use our Sourdough starter to yield a rich and deep flavor profile with a pleasant, lingering finish. #bagelnerds

Bagels are now available at all Frothy locations and are also available to our wholesale customers!

We have designed Frothy Monkey to be an approachable place to have a meal and gather with friends all day long- a true all day cafe. You might start your day off with our locally roasted coffee and a California for brunch, enjoy a Royale for lunch, stop by after work for a glass of wine or a craft beer, or join us after 5 for Shrimp & Grits or a Blackhawk Farms Burger with a cocktail. After 5 is when we have the opportunity to get creative and let loose. Because Food, Coffee, and Wine are equal parts of the hospitality we serve. Preview our dinner menu here.

A new year of wine at Frothy Monkey begins on Wednesday, March 13th with the popular Wine Down Wednesday. The Downtown Franklin, 12South, Downtown Nashville, Nations, and Southside Chattanooga locations are hosting this weekly event. We will have 3 pours of wine and snacks for $15 every Wednesday 5-7pm.  Beer flights are also available for those who would rather sip a brew. $15 for 6 beer tasters and snacks. frothymonkey.com/wdw

“We want our wine offerings to be approachable, yet educational,” says Brittney Harrison, Frothy’s wine and hospitality guru. “My favorite thing about wine is that it allows you to branch out and try new things, and that is what we have in mind when we are tasting and choosing wines.” 

Wine Love Dinners are scheduled for March 28 + 29, June 27 + 28, August 8 + 9, November 14 + 15. The paired dinners typically take place 6:30pm – 9pm on Thursday nights at our Franklin location, Friday nights at our Nations location. They are a collaboration between Chef Chase Ingalls, BAKERY by frothy monkey, and our wine partners. Tickets are $65++ and are available at frothymonkey.com/winebeerlove. In addition to our traditional Wine Love dinners, this year we will also be hosting beer, whiskey + cigar tasting events.
