Special Grounds Project Update ~ Jan. 2021
We want to keep everyone informed on the status of our exciting new project, Special Grounds Coffee Shop.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the project down and pushed back the timeline for when we wanted to be up and running. However, progress continues to be made and exciting milestones are being reached. It is so exciting to see how things are beginning to take shape. Here are some recent updates:
- Our roasting room is painted. New flooring has been put down and the roaster is all unpacked and ready to go. We are now ready to begin our roasting process which will allow us to master our roasting profiles.
- We had water damage in our training kitchen due to issues with the old pipes in the walls. Unfortunately, when we tried to remove the old cabinets, which had been built in place, we damaged them. We decided to gut all of the old kitchen cabinetry and start fresh. For now, the training kitchen houses our new espresso machine and is being used as a coffee lab as we work to provide our customers with amazing blends and recipes.
- Our new drive up window has been installed and the coffee shop exterior has been wrapped with beautiful new siding.
