coffee smatterings

Things are happening around the Oddly Correct coffee roasting shack. Briscoe Panels are up, as the photos depict. I am really happy with them. I look forward to spending some more time diving in to the curious matter that inhabits the oh-so-classy plywood and paint.

We have been enjoying the weather shift, as I am certain the rest of you have as well. Euphoric feelings of wind on the face that do not threaten the longevity of one's features on one's face are one of the little benefits of this weather.

We scored a sweet drying rack for our printed 12 oz coffee bags. It is a salvaged bed spring from a crib that had out-lived its frame's stability. Works for us, thanks, Lee.

I have also enjoyed the sensation of pushing a load of coffee in shopping cart recently. It's not so high on the list as finding an arrowhead, or seeing a live armadillo up close in nature(both of which happened recently), but it's still satisfying.

Other than that, stay tuned. Burundi coffee coming soon for real.

Hello. Happy Spring.

I was talking to a woman a couple of days ago, telling of what we have going on with the shop, etc. She remarked something along the lines of, "you mean the shop that was going to be open in November?" - I said, "Uh, yeah, that one..." It was actually motivating to get a jab from someone I know not. She's right.

So, the now proverbial three week mark has been set. I am calling some numbers on Monday, that should put things in to motion. Some features will be installed this week to make the retail space feel more retail-y, and our lovely bar top-in-progress is, well, in progress. The artist who is crafting it believes our timing can connect.

On the home-delivery front, we will be sending out a Fair Trade Organic Papua New Guinea. It's got some passion fruitish tones, followed by a mild Indonesian must. I am a fan. So, if you are into that sort of thing, and you live, let's say, between the River Market and Brookside, I will be happy to rest upon your doorstep a hand-crafted bag of coffee. Click hither.

This week, we will be installing a couple panels from the always fine, Brandon Briscoe. He agreed to create a piece or two bring some life to a dark place in the shop. I am imagining it will tie the room together similar to the Dude's rug. Let's hope the fate of the painting is not parallel.
