It's stupid cold out if you haven't noticed, but we're staying nice and cozy warm inside the shop! Peppermint mochas, hot chocolates and Sweater Weather pour overs will help you forget the blistering weather that awaits your frantic commute back to your car, so you might as well stay in the cafe for just a few more minutes.
We're too excited to let the cold bother us right now though, we've got new projects to work on and cool things to do! I've talked a lot about our plans for expansion and growth, and we've been busy making those rad things happen. This week Ruby the Roaster and I found a new big fancy workspace to pump out hundreds of pounds of incredible coffee! This is a cool thing, because we previously were operating out of a much smaller facility that was little more than a fancy garage. In the new operating location, a warehouse in Newark, we will have increased space and resources to offer more services on the storefront end of business. Plans to upgrade equipment, streamline cold brewing and distribution are all that much closer to becoming realities, and the added benefit of better environment control means I will be able to fine-tune my roasts to an even higher quality! Espresso will be the next big mountain to climb, but be on the lookout for a few new roasts in the coming weeks.
With the approaching frigid holidays, be sure to stay safe and warm in the shop or in your home. If you're still looking for a few gift ideas we might be able to help! A coffee subscription is a great way to enable someone to get a steady supply of craft coffee delivered right to their door, and the store is bursting at the seams with loads of retail products including new glass and cork Keep Cups with our logo on it! They also come in an array of swanky color combos, so be sure to stop by the shop and chek them out!
Stay warm, and Happy Holidays!
