Wow, you are close! InFlux in Little Italy…hmmm. I'll have to check it out. Good to know about The Neighborhood too!
One of these days I hope I'm able to be in SD on a Friday so I can pop in on a cupping at Bird Rock. Unfortunately, Thur/Fri are usually the days I'm roasting and doing stuff for Red Rover Coffee (my biz) so it's rare I'm not home then.
I'm actually in Seattle right now and am heading to the Victrola roastery for their public cupping and might do the daily one at Stumptown on 12th this afternoon.
Next time I'm at Bird Rock I'll ask if you're there. I haven't had a chance to try BR's Geisha yet (I never quite hit the timing right!), but I have had the Limmu a couple of times.
So what was the deal with Java Jones? I was going to stop in once but didn't have the time, and the next time I went by it was closed.
Hey Arron, thanks for the response. I actually know a good many toll roasters and was more asking to further classify Bird Rock on my end of things ... always good to be the connector between people and companies :-)
Hey Arron, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, I got really busy with clients and I'm just entering beta phase on my coffee contests website (coffeecontests.com). I do know Jocylyn, she's great, I hope she has good memories of me :-)
It's really great that you've found somewhere you fit at, enjoy it.
I'll need to do my research and find out more about Bird Rock now ;-)
Just wanted to drop you a note to say hi. I started a small roasting biz here in New Hampshire (just about an hour north of Boston) where I live, but we also have a condo on Cortez Hill in downtown SD that we make it to once a month or so. And when we're out there I ALWAYS head up to Bird Rock for a V60 pourover. You guys have an awesome thing going there. I'm starting out much like Chuck did, so if things go well I'd love to see my biz be as successful as he's made Bird Rock! You definitely have the only place in SD county that I've run across that "get" coffee. Caffe Calabria is a little disappointing I think. Anywhere else you know of??
Anywho, just wanted to say hi. Maybe we'll connect one of these times I'm at Bird Rock.
