On your recommendation, I got Ruhlman's books from my public library - fifteen pages into "Making" and I'm hooked. Good recs!

I stopped by your new dig a week ago. I wish I was able to spend more time there! Your baristas are the awesome.

I'm going to Philadelphia in a few weeks to visit my brother. Will definitely check out Spruce Street. I went to Ultimo when I was up there last..

Hey Jay,

I visited your shop last summer, and had the pleasure of getting some spro from one of your very talented baristas! I think her name was Ruth? She had a guest espresso in the hopper that knocked my socks off..

Is your new shop opening soon? I'd very much like to be one of your first customers!

Hey Jay! I just posted a response to your comment in the 'iced on foamed lattes' discussion and was hoping you could enlighten me a bit more on the topic. Thank you kindly!

Hey Jay,
Great set of photos. Nice work with your mission and business direction.

Hey Jay, the Baristas at Spro were cracking me up the other day!

I tried the Aricha I left for you, and I think I roasted it too light - if you try it as a SO shot let me know if it was better than the way I had it, which was vac-pot.

Also, I did stop in to Woodberry Kitchen for dinner after visiting Spro, and it was amazing... Oyster soup | Wreckfish, greens, and white carrots | Sweet Potato Pie... very nice indeed! I'll be back.

Heya Jay! I'm don't own Red Berry but I am the manager and definitely the barista with the most experience. I'm chronicling the experience as best I can. It's feeling more like Hunter S. than Kerouac; definitely lucid at times. I'm learning first hand what you've known three or four times now. Cheers, and TTYL.

Hey Jay, I've been following the discussion on the "And your recommendation would be..." thread, saw that you're opening up a shop, and was pleasantly surprised to read that Barefoot made it onto your cupping table. I'm not with the Foot-proper anymore, but I wanted to drop you a line and say it was good to meet you back in December at the Barefoot Cafe.

Hi Jay, no worries, I will be back through your area on Nov 5th and again on the 19th. Let me know if you will be around one of those days and we can go eat some food.

I do get what your saying and by the time I got to your second post it started to become clear. I do think that the author of the thread would not get it though. I dont think he has ANY experience as a manager and has no real tools for background to make the kind of hiring decisions and conduct the training that would be needed under your style of management.

What he needs is probably some documentation and some direction which should come from his employer but he is likely not going to get. Its too bad and that is why most places have such a high overhead when it comes to employee turnover. training and efficiency.

I do think that we need a good thread on management styles and tools. Ill try and dig up some of the stuff I had from my last employer and post it. Some might find it interesting and helpful and im sure others will have different opinions to post.

That sound very interesting. I find it very uplifting that you actually offer you sig bev on your menu. I mean, what a novel idea!! I think this should almost be a requirement. If your customer cannot take part, then what's the point of it all. Ok... I know the point,... But it would be refreshing.

I completely agreed with you and the kid needs to grow up. Noy like he hurt your feelings or you care at all, just giving support anyway. I tried to do it on the thread before it was pulled. Oh well. Godspeed.

I will be talking to Les in the next few days. Maybe I'll lobby to get you there. Regardless, it was good to have you at the regionals.

Jay, any chance you'll be in Van for the Canadians?

Hey Jay--if you are interested in the curtis tower, give me a call at 317.403.1239 sometime this week. Also, sorry for the late response, I went on vacation for a week and forgot to check the bx.
