Great Coffee -- It's Not an Accident (Part 3)

Posted on January 5, 2010 at 2:39pm 0 Comments

Here is the third installment from my future shop's Facebook page...

Your cousin and his wife were very kind, and helped my wife and I find a few books on gardening (which have already been put to good use!)

Good eye! That is a brushed aluminum flaming cup that is mounted to the front of our bar at one of our Alpharetta locations. Unfortunately, it's quite a drive from Waynesboro, but if you're ever in the area...
