our business: SUCCESS BREWING Fully Loaded — Coffee, Tea and a Few Good Reads Some Like It Hot, Some Like It Cold — But Whatever Your Taste, Full Cup Fills the Bill BY SCOTLYN OGLE T 82 he Full Cup is a coffee shop and bookstore located on South Main Street that offers a comfortable space to come in, drink your favorite drink, read some books and enjoy some great company. “We wanted it to have a sense of community,” said Jennifer DeWitt. “A real neighborhood hangout.” Opened in April of 2014 by Bridget Talmage and DeWitt, the shop has made a name for itself not only by being unique to Weatherford, but also offering special services you won’t find anywhere else in the community. “It’s just Bridget and [me], so we have a relationship with our customers,” said DeWitt. “With 50 employees, you wouldn’t get that.” Open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., you are sure to get your caffeine fix with their fresh and locally roasted coffee. The shop sells everything from a Cuppa, which is medium roast coffee, to French Press, to Cold Brew. They also have the basics, such as Americanos, espres- sos, cappuccinos, macchiatos and lattes. You can also add your choices of syrup and shots of espresso to your drinks. They are all made to order. They also serve frappes, flavored from your favorite candy bar such as Snickers or Almond Joy, to seasonal flavors such as pumpkin spice. You can also get non-coffee drinks, including their special four-chocolate hot chocolate, a “Steamer” -- a specialty flavored drink, or an Italian Soda with your favorite flavor mixed in.  In the large room sits a bookcase that allows for books of all genres to be picked up, read and traded for a reasonable price. Big, comfy couches in the sitting area offer a place for the business’ customers to sit and visit as well. You can call ahead with your order and be treated with curb service, or buy old and rare books right off their shelves. The Full Cup also offers monthly events. Every Saturday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., they host an Open Mic Night. Every first Wednesday of the month, from 9 a.m.
