Very little separates coffee from the rain. It is perhaps an old cardboard box, or a sheet of plastic from shipping material loosely covering the coffee. Yet we are still moving what we roast across the city by bike.
This week we have been digging out bicycle fenders, and have started to be more attentive to charging our bike light batteries. Also our favorite bike tires for the cargo bike have just come back in stock- Schwalbe Marathon Pluses, which we plan to stock up on.
Downtown we have eight quarts of housemade ginger syrup, and in one of our bags lies the missing piece for our carbonation system. Our Honey supply is at 3.5 Gallons, and if anyone notices the 200 pounds sugar and 200 pounds flour they may want to place bets on how much our shelf may hold (because our records weigh a ton). Our favorite varietal of Pumpkins are almost in season, and cranberries are coming fast. For the third time we replace the thermostat on our glass door beverage cooler, happily averaging 37F now (although the part inside is no longer within spec.).
The roastery is also pretty stocked with the current coffee offerings, but we are trying to buy more as soon as we may.
