About Me:
Im a post apocalyptic advertising copywriter with a taste for coffee, an English Lab named Dwight and the sight of corporate executives hung by their suits from rafters. OK, so I'm a little on edge this morning. But a few hours behind my 4-Group and some great espresso and I'll be good to go. Started Bunbury's Coffee Shop four years ago after a lifetime workin' for da' man and never looked back. We brew and sell as much fair trade, organic, rainforest alliance and bird friendly coffee as possible in our 650 sq-ft. shop. We bake all our own pastries fresh daily, do a pounding business and generally love the industry and the wonderful people in it.
And yourself?
About My Company:
I really gotta read down these things before I shoot my wad and write it all in the first box.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
The way we all seem to help each other, unlike the cutthroat, dog-eat-dog world of American corporate business.

Hi there - sounds like you do a little more around your shop than just show up once in awhile. Maybe your staff just doesn't appreciate your efforts when you are there. My ex-wife was like that, which I guess is why there's that 'ex' part in front of wife.
My bike club travels in Rockland a lot, so I'll be sure to stop by. Josh

Yep, barista, proprietor, bottle-washer, you name it. My place seats about 65 and we do a huge weekday lunch take-out business. Thanks for responding –– I was told you've retired from the day to day shop stuff.

I belong to a bike group and we tour around Rockland a lot. While traveling through Piermont last month, we've stopped at your shop -- great place. Josh Williams

Hey I'm not trying to be mysterious, just careful. I've received some peculiar emails from "coffee enthusiasts" and this is the internet, so you just never know who might be reading this. If you want my email address, just ask.

Yep, we had a great 3 day weekend. By end of day Monday, sales hit 5 digits. It's been about 3 months since that happened.

Howdy -- if you responded to my last message (from Sunday), I never received it.

PS: I contacted the cooking academy in NYC you recommended and got cc'd back on an email alerting this HUGE database of students of the opening in our shop. Thanks for the tip! Gotta get something from that kind of targeted exposure!

Congratulations on your banner day!! It's so gratifying when it all comes together and you just KICK BUTT all day long. We had a good Saturday but the rain Sunday will keep the cyclists away in the PM. Still, we went through 12 dozen muffins and a double bake of croissants, turnovers, bagels and rolls from our usual Saturday. I was up in OB at Seawanaka for the Jaime Boeckel regatta yesterday. Is "The Baykery" your shop? If so, we've been there.

Hi there; Did you have a busy weekend at your shop? We extended our hours (Sat until 11pm and Sun until 9pm) and added a few more events. Saturday was incredible -- we did exceeded our all time high sales numbers by almost 22%. So far, today looks as busy as yesterday was!

Actually I have great luck with bakers. I contacted the Culinary Academy of Long Island (www.culinaryacademy.edu) and the Natural Gourmet Institute (www.naturalgourmetschool.com) and talked to the career counseling/placement staff at both schools. I now have a stack of resumes, so I don't need to advertise.
