After an enjoyable festive/holiday season we are all glad to be back. Great to see some familiar faces at the weekend farmers' markets and at the roastery/espresso bar this week.
We are now back in full roasting mode with our espresso blends completed for the week and with single origins being progressively roasted today and tomorrow.
So what's in store for 2012:
We are looking forward to many new coffees coming on board this year and establishing further links with growers in regional areas. We are also excited to jump on board some exciting new initiatives with other roasters/brokers to access some of the best world coffees, including Cup of Excellence selections over the year.
We will be doing some further work at our Growers Espresso store to open up the courtyard and also to make the roaster room more accessible for customers to view all the action.
The food menu will continue to have its farmers' market produce focus, and will remain fresh and seasonal with direct relationships with all of our growers and suppliers.
Our retail coffee equipment and accessories will be expanded to offer a greater range of top end equipment, including all of the Hario gear.
We will introduce cold filtered coffee to our service shortly to showcase some of our top single origin coffees. This will complement our pour-over and espresso services.
And finally, we are currently looking for a suitable person(s) to purchase and operate the coffee carts and coffee catering operations of our business. This opportunity will appeal to a coffee and hospitality focused professional who is involved with the hands on running of the business. So if you are interested, or know of anyone who may be interested, please get in touch by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
So best wishes for 2012 - I'm sure we will have another great year.
Cheers, Mark and the Eureka Coffee / Growers Espresso Team
