I stopped by your new dig a week ago. I wish I was able to spend more time there! Your baristas are the awesome.

I'm going to Philadelphia in a few weeks to visit my brother. Will definitely check out Spruce Street. I went to Ultimo when I was up there last..

Hey Jay,

I visited your shop last summer, and had the pleasure of getting some spro from one of your very talented baristas! I think her name was Ruth? She had a guest espresso in the hopper that knocked my socks off..

Is your new shop opening soon? I'd very much like to be one of your first customers!

Hey Jay! I just posted a response to your comment in the 'iced on foamed lattes' discussion and was hoping you could enlighten me a bit more on the topic. Thank you kindly!

Hey Jay, the Baristas at Spro were cracking me up the other day!

I tried the Aricha I left for you, and I think I roasted it too light - if you try it as a SO shot let me know if it was better than the way I had it, which was vac-pot.

Also, I did stop in to Woodberry Kitchen for dinner after visiting Spro, and it was amazing... Oyster soup | Wreckfish, greens, and white carrots | Sweet Potato Pie... very nice indeed! I'll be back.

Heya Jay! I'm don't own Red Berry but I am the manager and definitely the barista with the most experience. I'm chronicling the experience as best I can. It's feeling more like Hunter S. than Kerouac; definitely lucid at times. I'm learning first hand what you've known three or four times now. Cheers, and TTYL.
