We lit the house with candles. Courier staff arrived prompt exactly an hour past seven. Opening the garage door to clear way for bikes a bright headlight appeared from the driveway.. Fondue made with Gruyer, white wine and nutmeg. cider and holiday ale. A fire in the fireplace made with wood scavenged from the many fallen branches on the way home (by bicycle).
We sold a lot of wholebean coffee today at the bar, and so we roasted more to bike in tomorrow. Our chosen coffee for espresso switched to Ethiopia Shoye Cooperative on Saturday. Tuesday morning we open with freshly roasted coffee available for sale and also made on bar. There is a roll of ribbon if you desire your coffee wrapped.
Our staff holiday party was quiet and intimate. Pretty much the star of the night was Kourtney and Dans dog Topper (blog on right). It is wonderful being surrounded by wonderful people and working with them.
