Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
My shop is a small "walk-up" business. I am located in a state office complex serving: DOC, Licensing, DSHS and the Lacey Gov't Center. Though our primary product is espresso based beverages we do offer smoothies, and blended beverages. I refrain from using the "Big Train" brand; rather I use a neutral base (Frozen Xplosion) and add flavors: Chocolate, caramel sauce adn fresh fruits and berries while in season. I believe this offers a better product with fewer calories and far less fat than the all in one powders. We offer pasteries that are baked fresh daily from a local small family owned bakery.
Our beans are roasted by Batdorf and Bronson. We offer B&B's Mexico Organic De-Caff and their Bohemian Blend. Batdorf & Bronson provides quality training and in their visiting lab allow us to improve upon our skills at pulling the "perfect shot" and blending this with steamed/foamed milk producing excellent lattes.
This June 2009 I opened my second store in downtown Olympia. it is located in a beautiful old building built in 1927 of sandstone and marble. I have seating for 9. I have been looking for an inside store for a while and this fits my wants exactly.
About Me:
If someone would have told me I would be opening my third coffee house and making this my profession, just a few years back, I would have gauffed at them. I entered late, depending upon prespective, reflecting that most baristas are in their twenties and thirties haven't seen them for twenty and thirty years. I love this....what took so long?
About My Company:
C&D Gourmet Coffee Company is owned jointly by myself and my brother. We both have a passion for espresso and a deep commitment to our customers.

C&D Gourmet Coffee Company offers a variety of espresso-style beverages as well as fresh-brewed coffee, blended beverages, selected pastries and light lunches. All of our blended beverages are created individually never from a pre-mixed package (ie Big Train). When possible (while in season) we use fresh locally grown fruits and berries in our blended and smoothie beverages. Locally grown means fresh and reflects our continuing commitment to support our community based small businesses.

The customer service and values of C&D Gourmet Coffee Company is "Old World Style" as well. Customer satisifaction is the highest priority, with an emphasis on quality and attention to detail every step of the way. The overall emotional feel is of "relaxed energy" and "friendly recognition". Our baristas know their customers by name and beverage.

Our business philosophy toward our employees is : "Assisting others to realize a purpose and through that purpose live winning lives".
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
Pulling that perfect shot, blending it with frothed milk and watching my customer's face light up when they experience that dark, smokey, bittersweet essence which is our espresso.
