Subject: Free shipping from Barry
I looked in on Barry's website yesterday to see how his build-out was
going. I was surprised to see that, while the project is going on, he
is offering free shipping on his coffee (roasted only). Since I've
never had Riley's coffee as Barry intended it (just roasted on my
little Fresh Roast), I ordered a lb. each of Decatur St. and
Taliaferro.

For anyone interested: http://www.rileys-coffee.com .

This is a bit off topic, but I was poking around Riley's web site again
after reading this post. I see that flavored coffee is available. I
have a 1lb Sonofresco roaster in my house and was wondering how I would
go about flavoring some of my roasts. I was at a local roaster lately
and I saw bottles of flavoring. I am assuming that you just coat the
beans in the flavor after roasting?

If this is the case does anyone have suggestions on a good flavoring
brand?

TIA,
Tim

When I was at a local roaster recently they had a setup that tumbled the
bena s after they added the flavoring.
How about using the brand your local roaster was using?

BTW you'll need to use a seperate grinder for the flavored coffee to avoid
tainting your other coffee.

I like the comment about the equipment up in the rafters. I think it's
better not to be around to see how these things get up there, or more
importantly to not see what will only give you nightes later on.

Watching other people's construction is a different matter :) Last
week I could only gawp as the neighbours had 3 massive printing presses
(each about the size of a new Mini) hoisted about 20 stories up and
through one of those gantry doors in the side of the building. Walkie
talkies? that's for girls, these guys used whistles.

You are in for a treat. I've had two pounds, and both were nothing short
of excellent.

I'm in Toronto, Ontario, Canada., but it was great to see all the
construction pics! Barry, will you add more at a later date?
Thanks!

Love the mock-up. Looks like a very sharp store.

Just out of curiosity, did you do a drive-thru? I get lots of
requests for a drive-thru. Not going to happen for my historic
building, middle-of-the-block location though.

nope. no drive-thru. if we make a ton of money, then we can think
about pooching something out the side of the building. we opted for
the end of the building with the best street exposure and a spiffy
patio, instead of the less visible end w/o the patio.

It is strange that he doesn't even answer an e-mail inquiring about his
products and services if he is serious about running his business. ;-)

so far, no. the county has no issues, as we're in the same county
that we've been roasting in for 18 years, and it shouldn't be an issue
with the city. it's a small roaster (7 kilo), and it's the only one
in the county.

But if they got more stringent in say 3 - 5 years or whatever, do you
think you'd be grandfathered in Barry?, because you built before any
possible future code/s were inacted? Or would the buggers make you
retrofit/upgrade & cost you a lot of money, construction headaches., or
would it be easier & cheaper to do it now.., before everythings
drywalled/sealed up in the foor area?
