Come by our Valencia cafe and check out the changes that we’ve made over there.
The first change is that we’re ditching the whole “order with the barista” thing. It seemed like a good idea, but we’re ready to let it go. Now you’ll order at the register and pick up your drink from the barista.
Unless, of course, you want to take advantage of our new “instant gratification” coffee. Yes, that’s right, we now have filter coffee, already brewed and ready to go.
Does that come as a surprise? Well, even for us, there are days we want to wait for a meticulously weighed and individually-brewed cup of coffee. And then there are days we just want a good cup of coffee. Right. Now. Please.
And it turns out that batch-brewed coffee can be almost as delicious as an individually-brewed coffee. We’ve worked out great roast lines and brew recipes for our batch-brewed coffees that delighted even our most obsessive QC person. And we’re still offering a menu of coffees, brewed on the V-60 bar, for the days that’s what you’re in the mood for.
