Hey Scott. Got a chance to stop by the shops when I was there a few months ago. Enjoyed the shots and vibe, good work. Gotta tell you, I've used my souvenir 8oz Herkimer travel mug just about every day since getting home. It sure gets lots of comments in a big-gulp world. Cheers.

The new digs are coming along slowly, but building. I thought there was a cupping of some really good Latin American coffees last week. Could be wrong. Wished I could have been there to hang out with ya.

Maybe I'll get to see you this coming week I have a new barista that I am working with and am showing her the hotspots too.
