The Storm Called Progress

We passed the first round of city inspections today; the state health inspection is Tuesday morning. We just might be able to take the paper down from the windows Tuesday afternoon...

The casework is almost done. Stainless inserts were placed along the sides of the stained concrete facade of the bar. The bar seating surfaces are the last details to be brought on site and installed. The hanging drum lights were a last minute addition.


There's enough space behind the bar to comfortably hold 10. We know; that's how many we had around the machines during training, and it was never really that crowded. The layout is almost like a teaching kitchen. Oh, and the Rancillio will never get a chance to live out its life as the decaf grinder. A replacement Super Jolly is on the way-- much more suitable for guest espresso, anyway.
