open!!!

no time for posting, kids! we opened friday.

customers are kickin' our butts. it's awesome!

but we're running out of coffee, milk, pastries, singles... i have to go run to the bank right now (my scary first time leaving the shop since we've been open - yes, we're open from 6.30am to 9pm!).

it's been a week of 21 hour days (literally), and plenty of scrambling... but the team is kickin' it and the customers seem totally psyched! so, yah!

we're all (sleepy) smiles.

gotta go... hope to see you all soon. cheers!

counting down...

Oh, you wonderful coffee drinkers (and neighbors and friends)... we have not forgotten you. Rather, we are scrambling to bring you an open coffee shop this week!

Yes. Really. The gas and phone were finally connected exactly a month ago, and we gave up on waiting for the building's electrical upgrade. So we've been at a run... overwhelmed with applications and trying to get all our ducks in a row for ya's.

We now have our great new staff (you're gonna love 'em!), and we're doing everything we can to get this baby up and running by the end of the week!

So... no time to dilly-dally, talking about it. It's pedal-to-the-medal, no-sleep-til-Brooklyn, holy-*bleep*-time around here!

Keep an eye on the windows, and hopefully we'll see you on Friday for some delish coffees!

PS- In a cruel twist of fate, the electrical upgrade for the building that we've been waiting on for ten months is apparently also planned to start this week... so disastrous, outside-the-shop, street tearing-up may also be on the menu for our "grand opening" week or two. C'est la vie!

See you soon!
