We’re putting our money on Black. No sugar.
We’re preparing to triple in size as we knock down walls and expand west toward the river. Designs for the new space are still a work in progress but we’ll certainly be making room for more quality control and production equipment (Agtron color/roast profiling system, valve-top cylindrical steel can seamer, moisture analyzer, heat sealers, etc). The 16” thick yellow pine timbers, giant East-River-facing windows and 15 ft. ceilings combine to make the space solid as a rock and soaring with watery light. Come visit us and see for yourself.
On Friday we received an amazing addition to our “fin du dernier siecle” furniture collection—an antique Merle and Heaney working roulette wheel and table. Together with our rialto theatre row seating (customer comfort zone), wood-spooled pie-cooling racks (for t-shirts and sweatshirts and soon b-ball caps) and haberdasher’s cabinet (now green coffee sample storage and organization), our uber-cool casino antique underlines our respect for craftsmanship and commitment to authenticity. We also think it would make an incredibly cool cupping table.
