Holidays are complicated (for so many reasons!). I’m mapping out approx coffee usage for the next couple weeks to ensure that when we come back from being closed 25-28, our coffee will not only be fresh but also properly degassed. Each bean/blend that we use has a slightly different degas time and optimizing for peak flavor with changing variables regarding daily usage is taking all my concentration and multiple printed calendars to jot down math notes. Good coffee takes effort, and it’s totally worth it. We the shop/baristas are the last step in a long chain of dedicated people from farmers to roasters and more. Any misstep in that chain effects the end result, and as the final step, if we don’t do our part, it’s a disservice to all the hard work of those who came before us to grow, produce, nurture, and roast these lovely little beans. Thanks for being part of the journey!!!!! πŸ₯°β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈβ˜•οΈπŸŽ„πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ€ͺ

This Saturday Zan Stewart, solo Jazz:

β€œI'm happy to say that I'm back with another edition of my solo show this Saturday, the 7th, 7-9p, at Kaleidoscope Coffee in Point Richmond. This hip neighborhood coffee house, located at 109 Park Place, downtown, is a nice open room that offers a unique space in which to share musical joys, and those extra-musical as well. Playing solo is a challenge, one that can seem rather arduous at times, which means that different approaches need to be discovered in order to make it not so. That's the path I'm on. This is a work in progress which I hope some of you might enjoy. This Saturday, I'll definitely offer some swingers, but also a lot of slower pieces, which I think suit the setting. Also, I'll sing a few and tell some stories of my years in the jazz life. I'm looking forward to this unfolding.”

Magic is happening! Come in for the cozy. Come in for the warmth. It’s starting to sparkle with cheer. Also all the holiday drinks!

Wow, y’all.
It’s been a crazy few days with planned and unplanned power outages and more fires all over the state and even parts of the Bay. It’s been fairly amazing to see people come together and remember kindness and compassion amidst all the craziness. From our regulars to all the new faces we’ve seen over the past few days, Thank You!

Yesterday marked the official day of being open for 4 years (one of these times we’ll manage to plan a big party πŸ€ͺπŸ˜“.) It’s really incredible to have come so far. Thank you all for being part of this crazy little dream. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Ooof, it has been a day. We’re gonna need an extra hour to get things ready for you (opening at 7 instead of 6), but we are excited to see your beautiful faces and drink delicious coffee.

Very sad to report. Not sure when power will be back. This is not part of the planned outages by PGE. There’s a downed power line up the street. Still waiting for updates. Sorry y’all! :(

The slightest smudge of lipstick, left behind coffee drips provide reminders of a pre-awake existence: the quintessential coffee cup.

Sometime between 5 and 10 hours ago, I intended to tell y’all that I was going to plant these plants in preparation for our BACKYARD GRAND OPENING JULY 6th!!!! But I was so busy tidying up and building the planter boxes out of remnants from the patio construction (so efficient!) and then actually planting the plants that I forgot/didn’t get to it. So! Here you go: I planted some of these plants today and I’m really excited. I hope they do really well and make the space magical and weird. πŸ’š
