New gear

We have some new fancy pants butane burners available. A safe design that puts out a big but controlled flame. This item is a great pairing with our TCA-2 but is large enough to be used when traveling to boil water for coffee (or tea).

The other new items we are very excited about are the little 2 cup wood neck dripper and the ceramic v60's. The dripper is a stylish little hoop sock brewer that comes with a wood neck (hence the name) tied with a leather strap. The ceramic v60's are a great pairing with our cloth cone filters and make a stylish statement on any professional (or wannabe pro) coffee setup.

We have Abid brewers in shop for sale but offline only. Come in for a demo and pick one up before we sell out.

More updates to come and a user guide is still being put together.

Today's menu

The espresso today is SOMA. Available as a shot, Americano (10oz), Cappuccino (5oz), and Cafe Latte (10oz to go only). We can make gibraltars, machiatto, and other variations on request.

Currently, there are no syrups or cocoas. We will add some sig type drinks using varied ingredients but that offering will change week to week and is of limited availability. Along those lines, we currently only carry whole milk from High Lawn farms and Crescent Ridge farms.

Coffee by the cup for today will be Kiandu (10oz Abid) and Costa Rica Helsar de Zarcero (10oz Abid or 8oz Syphon). The Zarcero is a new coffee that came to us in GrainPro and is exceptionally fresh.

That should give folks an idea of the coffee bar service at the shop right now.

Independence day hours

We will be closed tomorrow (July 3rd) and Saturday (July 4th) for the Holiday weekend.

Sunday though, we will be open from 10am to 5pm. Chris will be covering the shop and brewing up free coffee all day. I found a replacement burner so he'll be doing Syphon and pour over depending on interest as well as having Soma on bar all day.
