So, apparently it's still winter, despite the fine, fine weather last week. I think it may be considered a blizzard outside. Why not get up and head out in it to get some bouldering in with friends @ threehouse.

Things are moving along at the shop on Main St. We have been getting stuff in order with the officials, and so on.

There's a new coffee shop in town. Mud Pie Vegan Bakery & Coffeehouse opened this past week. We are excited to be roasting coffee for them. They went with an espresso that suited their tastes, as well as rotating drip coffees. I had a cashew milk latte today. The milk is crafted there, which is a beautiful thing. It's great to see passion coming from behind there bar, in what is such a great space & staple of 39th St. I recommend the chocolate bundt cake for breakfast.

It's been a time also, when printing has been able to be loosened up a little bit. Excited we are to take on some more mind-stretching projects.

Cheers to you all,

alright then

Things are going well with the shop on Main St. City processes
are going smooth, and shall hopefully be symbiotic in the end. I am hesitant to say when I think we'll be open, but I believe it will be soon. Sunlight has been flooding the shop in the mornings. Can't wait to share it.

Rudy, my bike doctor, hooked me up with some cyclocross tires this week, and I am now snow-able. I made a bike & trailer delivery of 60 lbs without pain or injury. It felt great to be mobile again.

As for coffees, we have a beautiful Papua New Guinea in house, Honeyopia is back, and a Burundi will be in house next week. New print elements are in the works as well. yeehaw.

Also, here's a before and after pic of what happens to humans after a dozen years of coffee roasting.
