Thanks to all who made it to our grand opening/first-year anniversary celebration last Saturday evening. It seemed like folks had a great time and I believe the coffee martinis and band were a "hit".
I had planned to make a brief statement during the evening but the timing never seemed right so I'd like to take the opportunity to do so now.
I would also like to thank the James John Cafe, Proper Eats, Barrique Barrel, Dina y los rumberos and Marly, Becky & Cameron, for making the evening so special.
We had a drawing the night of the celebration and just drew names last night to determine the winners. Congratulations to all of you. We will be contacting each of you to arrange delivery of your winnings.
This week we would like to welcome Sock Dreams to our growing list of offices who are keeping their staff fueled with our coffees. http://www.sockdreams.com/
Time to say good-bye, at least temporarily to two of our cherished coffees. The Bolivian Cenaproc and Brazil Grota Sao Pedro have both run out. I just roasted the last of both coffees yesterday so we have some on the shelf but when they're gone, they're gone. As soon as more becomes available, I'll bring it in.
It's perfect coffee drinking weather with the cooler temps and morning rain today so come visit us. And for those who haven't seen our new logo hoodies, 'tis the season! Warm, soft and cozy with a new stylized version of our logo adorning the back.
Many thanks and keep the coffee flowing.

A couple weeks ago I mentioned I was "no party planner" and geesh, was that ever the truth. Things for the grand opening/first-year anniversary celebration are coming together nicely but what a busy week it's been.
One of the fun aspects was doing a sampling of various recipes for the coffee martinis. Wow! These are SO GOOD! Dangerously good! Given the fact I'm a former photographer. I think a visual is always important. Solely for illustrations purposes, I just made a batch of the martinis so a photo could be included. Of course, we couldn't waste them so... However, if martinis are not your thing, don't worry. There will be other options as well.
I realized early this morning that there's no way the shop can remain open until 5pm tomorrow and expect to begin the party at 6pm so, we're going to close an hour earlier so we'll have enough time to get everything set up and ready to roll.
By the way, during the hours of the party, we will not be serving espresso beverages, selling coffee beans or anything else. Tomorrow evening is for festivities only. Drip coffee will be available for consumption for anyone who desires but it will be complimentary.
I would like to welcome our newest member to our team. Well, so-to-speak. We upgraded our coffee brewer this past week to try to better keep up with demand for drip coffee during those busy times and it is proving to work splendidly.
We received our new logo hoodies yesterday. They have already proven to be very popular and are perfect for these cool mornings. They're soft and cozy and have a new stylized version of our logo on the back. Pick one up next time you're in. They're only $40.
Another addition has been made to our list of tea offerings. We now have a very delicious jasmine tea available. It's very refreshing; fruity with some very nice floral notes.
I think that's it for this week. We're very excited about the party tomorrow night and hope you will join us. Show up and enter the give-away for various coffee items. Everything from bags of coffee, t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, etc. Here's another link to Dina y los rumberos, the band who will be performing to give you a taste of what will be happening tomorrow night. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08t0sLMD6a0
Many many thanks,
