WHAT WE'D DO WITH $250,000...
posted on November 12th 2013 at 09:29 by

Greetings!

 

If you’re friends with us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter, you might have heard that we’ve thrown our hat into the ring to win a $250,000 grant from Chase and Google.

 

Just what would we do with $250,000? As our longtime regulars know, we used to roast the coffee out of our coffee bar on Valencia. In 2009 we moved the roasting operation to SoMa.  Nearly every day, people ring the doorbell at the Roastery expecting to be able to get a tour and a cup of coffee. Sadly, we have to turn them away, without so much as a shot of espresso.

 

If we were to get this grant, we’d be able to open the Roastery to the public. But instead of just having a café, we’d build a hands-on teaching laboratory. Wouldn’t you love to get behind one of our espresso machines and learn how to pull a shot? We’d offer training and classes. We’d be able to better share the stories of the producers whose coffee we’re roasting.

 

So please take a second and vote for us.  Consider sharing the link on Facebook. It would be an amazing resource in San Francisco, a city now known for its coffee!

Thanks for your support!
