As we approach our grand opening celebration next week, things are coming together and it's getting very exciting. The name of the band is Dina y los rumberos who I heard about a year ago at an outdoor festival and felt from the get-go they would provide the festive music I wanted for our grand opening. I just watched a video of the band on YouTube and I think it's going to be a lot of fun. Check them out for yourself. I hope you can join us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kl946Q6Y-yg
We will be doing a give-away the night of the party so be sure to be here and get your name in the pot. Prizes will include t-shirts, coffee, coffee delivery service and other assorted items.
When we remodeled the shop last year, as with any project of the sort, there were a few lingering things that hadn't been completed. Last week I finally completed the shelves for our selection of pour-over coffees which illustrates the concept of us being all about "options". :) So many coffees, so few days.
As many have experienced, when one goes to sign their name on the iPad finalizing their purchase, it's often a futile attempt at getting anything close to what one's signature really looks like. Recently, a customer took an entirely different approach which I thought you'd enjoy.
In last week's newsletter, I described a beautiful drive to enjoy the autumnal colors of Oregon. I had intended it for either motorcycle travel or car. It would be beautiful either way. However, I received a query about the possibility of organizing a group motorcycle ride of this route, starting with coffee at the shop. I had never considered this but thought it was a great idea so if there are others out there who would enjoy something like this, please let me know and we can try to schedule something.
Warmer temps have returned, at least for this weekend so we'll be prepared with plenty of cold-brewed coffee and teas to help keep you cool. The St. Johns Farmers Market will be taking place again tomorrow and there should be an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as some amazing salmon and sausages.
Many thanks for your continued support. I hope you'll come share in next week's grand opening/first-year anniversary celebration.
