Well, it's 34 hours til I officially open my doors for business...for real this time., No more playing coffee shop with my 3 baristas and saying at 1:00 pm,' you guys want to call it a day?

BX Music Player Features

Hey guys, was just playing around with the music player that we each have on our page ... and realized that with the click of a button you can add anyones playlist or song that you like to yours. Nice! There is not yet a way to make a playlist pop out, so that you can keep browsing, BUT, what I do if I find a playlist on someones page that I like is open my next page in a new browser and continue to listen.

Viamigo - The worlds independent tour guide portal.

I have known Jeffrey Goldsmith for a few years now, meeting him first at a Las Vegas Coffee Fest Tradeshow. At that time he was promoting his new book Cafe Haiku, which some of you may know and love, and was getting his feet wet in the world of coffee. His book was a success and he spent a while promoting poetry readings in cafes around the US.… Continue

New Year, New Focus.

Well, I finished my goals for '08, and it's time to start working on them. I met with our president this morning to go over them, and the brainstorm for the new year, and one thing we agreed was something we wanted to work on this year was to improve the culture of coffee in and around Charlotte, even region. I feel like we really are on the cusp of something cool, like the scene in Kansas City is now. I feel it's time to be more fully realized in our area. I am tired of reading about everyone… Continue

Good Times, Great Food, Repugnant Coffee

Well, I had a great day today. The little league team that I manage had finally won our first game! (They really played their hearts out.)

If you haven't yet heard, Double Punch Days began January 1 and, boy howdy, what a start it's been! We've already given out oodles of Stone Creek Coffee drink cards to those retail store customers who know that for every coffee or tea drink purchase they make during January they'll get two hole punches on their card.
