it's friday, friday, gotta get down on friday..
i'm sorry, that will never happen again.
however, as we approach the weekend i thought i would end the small bit of silence we had on the blog this week to let you know what vh has been up to, as well as some things to be looking forward to on the blog.
the search is on! today alone i have meetings set up with coffee roasters (locals no less!) milk distributors and the city of austin (regarding properties). as more steps are made in each of those areas, i will make sure to post in detail about them.
for now, what do you think?
as far as your morning coffee, will you drink whatever someone puts in front of you? are you picky as to a roast (dark, medium, light)? do you hate the corporate monster that is starbucks? enlighten me, i would love to know. personally, i have really enjoyed learning more about the roasting process and meeting the people behind the companies. i can't wait to introduce you to them, once everything is decided.
in regards to location, there are two main contenders at this point. i'm going to keep that a tiny secret for now, but where would you like to see vh? do you live in an area with slim to none as far as coffee choices? if you have a saturated market around you, do you like the options you have or do you still drive out of your way to go somewhere else? do tell.
and for some things to look forward to:
local highlights - as vintage heart grows and our circle/network expands, we want you to know about it. there are too many talented people in this city not to highlight them and their craft. as the series starts off, if you think of anyone that you would love to see spotlighted, shoot an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below. we love meeting new people.
assigning a coffee roaster - as i mentioned earlier, i am in the process of meeting with roasters to find that perfect vh taste. once we finalize who that will be, they will be making an appearance or ten on the blog to tell you more about their practices and why they are fantastic.
design elements - i'm going to start posting more frequently about what you can expect from vintage heart as a space. admittedly, it is much easier for me to sit and dream all day about fixtures and lighting, wall color and outdoor patios, than it is for me to create spreadsheets involving milk, sugar and cup prices, so i figure who better to share it with than you!
let us know you stopped in and what you think. our goal is to be approachable and create somewhat of a community. so, share!
