table is full

sixteen brown demitasse lined on either side of the bar, still mostly full of coffee, from the cupping we had yesterday (tasse, cup in Italian). In the center an upside down control box lid , resting on its cooling fins, low voltage relays up. Tools lie pilled between the three group LSM and the two group Synesso.

Some sweet new additions have been added to our workshop. We now have a beautiful Wilton 1745 bench vise, Mitutoyo dial caliper, and a Knipex adjustable spanner. All of these came from our favorite tool shop- Hall Tool (1724 SE Grand, next to Goodwill). Knipex makes absolutely the best pliers, and we are lucky that Hall Tool steers us straight (Channel Locks garbage compared to Knipex). This is great to facilitate our work.

It is wonderful to focus all day on one project, like refurbishing our friends espresso machine. But, honestly, we have been busy. There are Tachometers sitting on our table, house-made wiring diagrams to test. We have three new accounts this month to check in on. Foster Burger has been on the tip of everyones tongue, and yes, they are open for business! Daniel from Sel Gris has teamed with the owner of PokPok to open this Burger and Milkshake eatery. Dovetail Baking opens later this month on 30th and Alberta, right on the corner! Our friend Dane Artman has opened a secret siphon bar (really a chocolate workshop) on the corner of 37th and Gladstone, with even more mysterious hours.

We are kind of busy, oh and finding a retail location central to the eastside would be nice, on a bike/nieghborhood through street.

    umm- $12 one pound woodstock. Although there is a grocery store on 36th and knapp- Eastmoreland Market- that sells our coffee for a little more, they are nice. Currently we are bringing them Peru coffee from the COOPARM cooperative- light milk chocolate body, mango juice notes. Anyway we bring Eastmoreland Market half pounds of whole bean coffee for resale. Tomorrow morning they will definitely have half pounds of Peru roasted today. We roast medium to medium light to medium heavy roasts. We have one coffee that is a little darker by nature- Indonesia Flores Bajawa. We roast a few coffees each day. I think farther down this blog there is a list somewhere…

    The bent pieces of metal are tips for our external/internal c-clip pliers. Kind of like heavy duty snap ring pliers, but we use these for La San Marco group screen retaining clips- the LSM brand ones. Pretty neat huh. I was trying to use these on a Parker class H valve, but then discovered the correct use for water pump pliers. Those red handled pliers you just got Miguel are water pump pliers, and I used my pump pliers correctly for the first time ever the other day! bring them and we will run tests.
