Deliciously Good Is Happening At
By Dr. Marrissa Dick - Photos by Howard Gaither hat do you do when you have a Malachi 3:10 experience and the windows of heaven open and God starts throwing lemons and coffee beans at you? You catch the lemons and make anointed lemonade, use the beans to make premier coffee and open the first African American juice and coffee shop in Greensboro, NC. That’s what you do. Meet Erika, Kim, Brian, and Elliott proud owners of WOW What A Drink, LLC and Café Revolution. When God is ready for your season to begin He will make the crooked path straight despite what others may believe. Erika shares, “We actually started making drinks back in 2010. We always wanted to participate in NC A&T’s Homecoming. I called the City of Greensboro to get a vendor license and the gentlemen said, ‘tell me what you’re selling?’ so literally just off the tops of our heads we thought of different types of lemonades and teas. Now understand we had never made or tasted any of these drinks before but that’s what came to us so that’s what we told him. He said he didn’t think we were going to make any money, but we got our license. From Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday we made $5,000! I called him back and I said well you’re right we didn’t “make” any money but we did make this amount and he laughed and congratulated us.” So, we realize that God does have a funny sense of humor but it’s always good when the joke is on someone else.
