roughly 9 to 5 M-Sa. But if my wife works a night shift I man not come in until 1 then stay late. That's the beauty of not being a cafe. We are going to build a tasting bar/equipment showroom but the hours will be modest. Our primary business is wholesale and my mission in the gallery to to offer a European style coffee experience focused on connecting with folks, assessing their needs, sharing information and experiences and providing solutions for their coffee fix. We select wholesale accounts that are a good fit with our values and mission and allow them to brew and serve the coffee. Stop by.

You can do both. Home barista-ing is the future. I can set you up with a Rancilio Silvia for a song.
