In addition to finishing up the roasting of coffee for tomorrow's deliveries, today was spent cleaning and organizing.
We received our order of Mexican pottery today and did our best to get it checked in and priced so it would be available. Another really beautiful shipment of serving platters, cream pitchers, water pitchers, flower vases and large fruit bowls, for lack of a better term.
I haven't yet had time to photograph any of them but I encourage you to stop by and see them for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
Today I received an e-mail from my contact in El Salvador who will be sending me some samples from their latest harvest. I'm excited about the possibility of once again begin able to offer some stellar coffee from El Salvador.
And, some of you may remember me mentioning a couple weeks ago that we were going to be movie stars.... Well, it's happening tomorrow. The film crew is scheduled to arrive between 9 and 9:30 to begin shooting. I'm sure it will take them a little while to get set up but if you're able to stop by at some point mid to late morning, it would be great to have a nice "active" shop.
I'll let everyone know once the show is ready to "air". I'm anxious to see how it turns out. Seems like a great opportunity to help spread the word about St. Johns Coffee Roasters.
It's been a long time coming and, it ain't over yet but.... We just received word that our building permit for the storefront improvement project has been approved!!!!
There have been times when I began to wonder if it was ever going to happen but FINALLY!
Now, it's just a matter of scheduling the contractor and getting things going.
Thanks so much for everyone's support in this endeavor. I'm very excited about what lies ahead!
