The last few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind. We want to tell you a little bit about what we've been up to.
Back in October of last year we took delivery of a new roaster, and we think it is fantastic. It has improved our coffee for sure, and the feedback has been incredible.
That gave us the impetus to move forward. It wasn't going to be good enough for us to be operating out of my back garden any more. We needed somewhere that we could fit out to our requirements, so that we could approach the craft of roasting coffee seriously.
So then we found somewhere. Great! But then we looked at our packaging and figured that could do with an update. The hastily knocked up (not to mention free!) logo we used to begin with made way for the beautiful artwork you see all over website today. It was important for us to work with a local designer, and the results speak for themselves.
So now we're waiting to piece together the final pieces of the jigsaw. Our snazzy new bags are coming from France. Our green beans are piling up from all over Africa and the Americas. One more hole in the wall of our premises will mean that the roaster is ready to be fired up once more and we will be on our way.
We can't wait to start sending our little bags of happiness out in the post again. We're also looking forward to seeing our beautiful new packaging on the shelves of shops in Walsall, Birmingham, and beyond. We have big plans for this year, and we'd be delighted if you'd join us for the ride.
More to come soon. Hopefully the next update will be to say we're open for business!
Keep it casual!
