Sorry for the lack of posts. Working quite a bit this summer at Catalina Coffee didn’t allow much time for blogging! We pushed a slow-bar program at Catalina this summer with a premium offerings list as well as the beginnings of a new coffee buying philosophy focusing on buying small amounts of premiums lots rather than larger buys of bread and butter long term lots. As well I worked on putting together a brewing guide for our Customers and Baristas that is a starting point for people buying brewing equipment. I’ll link a download of this 2 page simple document at the end of this post, as well i will eventually format some photos for an online version whenever i can figure out the best way to do it! Since all this shop business i’ve moved to Belfast for a semester for a study abroad program, which has allowed me to travel a bit to London and see some amazing sights and inspiring coffee shops. Hopefully i can do a rap up post of my coffee shop experiences in Europe sometime this winter. Thanks for the continued reading despite my lack of attention to this space!
