005: Changes To The Scheduled Programming


IMG_0978.jpg

So we’ve been open for 6 weeks now, plenty of coffee has been served and it’s been a lot of fun. We’ve been getting busier each day and we’re starting to settle into the space.

So far we’ve had one exceptional talk delivered by Jeremy Torz, founder of Union-Hand Roasted Coffee. Talking about their SCA Sustainability award winning work in the Yayu Forest Project.

I look forward to them returning for a cupping with the fresh crop later in the year.

We’ve had cuppings of Fortitude Coffee in Edinburgh, Darkwood’s from Huddersfield, Manchester Coffee Archive and Huckleberry Coffee Roasters from Denver, Colorado.

Though we’ve had a good start, but we think it’s time to make some changes.

You’ve voiced some of your opinions on what you’d like us to do and what you’d like us not to do. So we’ve taken them on board and from next week we’ll start implementing them with immediate effect.



THE CHANGES:

  • NEW OPENING HOURS

    MONDAY - FRIDAY 09:00 - 18:00

    SATURDAY - SUNDAY ON THE ROAD IN THE CAMPER VAN

    Basically, we need to a bit more rest. We’ve been doing 11 hour days and it’s taking it effect on us both. So we’re going to be scaling back the opening hours for the time being. Apologies for anyone effected by this.

  • NO BATCH BREW, JUST POUR OVER’S.

    We were really enjoying our daily mystery batch brew. But whilst were relatively low volume, we want to make each coffee to order. This means less coffee being poured down the drain if not drank and ultimately makes us better at pour over’s.


  • LESS FREQUENT CUPPINGS, ONE BIG CUPPING.

    So I think we may have gone a bit crazy with the amount of cuppings. Partly, this was due to people wanting to get involved in the space and use the space for their own events separate to ourselves. So from this point forward, we’ll be doing one big cupping from all the multi-roasters we have in that month or continuing with the series of talks dependent on the availability of our prospective speakers. One event, each month.



  • NEW CAKES FROM SILVER APPLE BAKERY

    We’ve decided to stop making pastries in the morning due to the lack of demand. We’ll be serving Vegan/Gluten free cakes from Silver Apple Bakery.

    • Vegan Oreo Brownies

    • Vegan Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

    • Vegan Pear & Cardamom Crumble Cake



  • TOAST IN THE MORNING & TOASTIES FOR LUNCH.

    We’ve had no end of people asking for toast and toasties. So we’ve decided to go ahead and make this happen for you. We’ll be serving 2 toasties, no vegan option currently. Toast with choices of confectionary. As demand grows, we’ll go about changing this.

    • Sourdough Ham, Cheese & Hawkshead Chutney.

    • Sourdough Hawkshead Chilli Jam & Cheese. (Vegetarian)

    • Sourdough Toast with Jam, Marmalade, Nutella & Peanut Butter.


  • MORE SEATING, COMING SOON.


For now that’s all the changes. Got plenty of workshops and courses you can sign up for.

Home Brewing and Latte Art Workshops

3rd Saturday, every month.

We run our courses and workshops based on your availability.

So get in contact and see how we can guide you through the world of speciality coffee and set a date that suits you best.
