New Traulsen freezer at our bar (both new True units had serious problems at some point). We now have an extra and completely redone True freezer that we have no use for. Our newest freezer (the third in two years) inspires confidence.
Three new coffees arrive Tuesday at roastery from the Menendez family, El Salvador. Also dried coffee cherry from the same family arrives, to be served immediately as a cold brew. Think Rosehips and spice. The coffees currently on bar are simply Colombia Arhauco and Kankuano tribe typica varietal, and our washed auction lot of Ethiopia Sidamo, which is also the espresso.
Saturday felt the busiest on record for Courier’s bar. We had lovely visitors, and were slammed. The pre-open run to the Farmers Market was confusion, since the entire market kind of moved one block farther down. We acquired Blackberries from Groundwork Organic, and Peaches from the Baird Family Farm. Thanks to Portland Monthly’s summer article we have been especially busy.
