Here we are, the week before Christmas. There's still time to get that someone special their coffee related treats, whether it be whole bean coffee, t-shirts, hoodies, mugs or whatever.
You may notice I'm a bit "late" getting this message sent out. The day got off to a very rocky start when I learned my lead barista had been involved in a nearly head-on wreck on Hwy. 30 as he was headed to the shop to open.
Luckily and remarkably, he's ok. I'm sure he'll be very sore tomorrow. But his car is totaled. Despite that rough start, he walked to the shop and finished out his shift without missing a beat! What an amazing guy!
We received our shipment of Mexican pottery this week and it is, as usual, beautiful. All the items we received are new to us. We have water pitchers, large fruit bowls, serving platters, cream pitchers, sugar bowls, flower vases, etc.
And, we moved one step closer to implementing our new display wall. All the shelves are up and are filled with bags of whole bean coffees and coffee related merchandise. Some have remarked they miss the chalkboard with all the varieties of coffees listed and, I agree. We will be bringing that back and incorporating it as soon as we're able. We never intended to do away with it permanently.
The ceramic logo coffee mugs are scheduled to arrive Tuesday, just in time for Christmas. And, the ever popular stocking stuffer bags of coffee are back. Come and get 'em!
Just a reminder to stock up on whole bean coffee and any brewing supplies before Christmas. We will be closed Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 25th - 27th.
We stocked up on filters, Toddy brewers, AeroPresses, burr grinders, and a multitude of other coffee brewing equipment which will satisfy even the most discriminating on your list.
In the event I don't get to see some of you personally before next week, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I'm very grateful for you all and how you've supported this business that we're so passionate about. We couldn't have done it without you.
Many many thanks,
Mount & Crew
