barismo just turned 3!

It is always customary to look back before looking forward.  Some people forget quite easily we've only been around for a little while.  Yes, we've been doing events, challenging others, and pontificating all things coffees for several more but the little coffee roasting shop tucked away in East Arlington just keeps on growing and we are diligently beginning our 4th year!

We want to thank everyone who supports us at the coffee bar, online, and through wholesale relationships.  We are particularly appreciative with how vocal those who support the shops that support us can be.  It's been an awesome year and we can't wait to get our new space open to present what we feel will be a very progressive concept.

The roasters will keep running but our little coffee bar will expand it's hours to Monday-Friday 8am-6pm, Saturday 9am-6pm, and Sunday 10am-5pm.  We may be closed in the near future for two days of remodeling but we'll keep you in the loop.

Thanks for your vocal support and shared interest in our little obsession we like to think of as a coffee business from time to time.  This year brought Hong and I our daughter Sofi which has been a handful but that's kept us grounded and focused on what we want to do in this industry.

It's a hard enough business to be in but our customers are quite unique so it makes for a much more entertaining work environment and kinda balances things out.  Once the new space opens, we'll have a quiet and well behaved celebration there and a look back at where we've been, keep an eye on the blog for updates.
