The new space

So the new space is kind of up and running. I’ve got a few photos


New packing Area

The cupping lab is not finished as I’m putting in some cupboards and have ordered a cool cupping table, but its getting there.


Cupping Lab

I cant tell you how much work this has been, its taken a lot of time and effort but its very cool. Once the lab is up and running its going to be a great space to cup.

The Bar

the bar area was built by our friend Bob who has done a great job. I’m very pleased with it, it has a hatch and door and everything. I even have a Beer hand pump on its way so I need never go home.

The Roastery

The Roastery also has more space now. the big gaps are so I can get the fork lift in and out easily, its great as we can hold so much more coffee now, so ordering need not be so stressed.

All in all its great to have it operational, even if there are some small jobs left to do.

  12. Thanks so much to everyone for your kind comments.

    Matt I wish I did have a series of photos because of a computer crash a few years ago and no backing up I have very little. I will have a dig through what I do have to see if I have anything.

    thanks again everyone
