Some good news along with some bad news.
by Mount Burns
A couple days ago, it became apparent to me that, despite our hard work and desire to open the new space by tomorrow, there just were not enough hours to make that a reality.
Things are still progressing nicely but with the concrete in front of our existing shop having been removed, there's just no way we can pull it off.
So I made the difficult decision to close the shop this Saturday. We will all be here working in the new space, trying to get everything to the point where we can open next Saturday, or perhaps even sooner.
Cabinetry is being delivered this morning, plumbers are scheduled to be here today to connect all the fixtures and I'm hoping for the electrician to arrive to day to take care of the electrical.
That said, there still remains a fair amount to complete before I'm comfortable opening. I'm fine with it being something less than 100% at first but, I'm shooting for at least 70 - 80%.
For those of you who need to purchase coffee this weekend, a fresh delivery is headed to Proper Eats this morning as well as all locations of New Seasons Markets.
And, perhaps this would be the perfect time to take advantage of our free bicycle delivery for next Wednesday. If you live in the 97203, 97211 or 97217 and get us your order by Monday morning at 9 am, (phone, e-mail or web site),we'll deliver fresh roasted organic and fair trade coffee to your doorstep at no extra charge. Heck of a deal!
Meanwhile, please keep posted via Facebook or our web site for further progress updates.
Best Regards and keep the coffee flowing,
Mount and crew
