We're still in business at the Coffee Plantation, but there's been precious little time to blog here lately. The shop is busy, much busier than it was on Whitehead Street. Theo and I have been working seven days a week, with only a little time off for each of us. We hired Tracy to work with us a couple of days a week. That gives us an opportunity to have little time off together.
We've added some things to our menu -- fresh baked muffins and scones, soups at lunchtime. We've become used to the layout here and can move around behind the coffee bar, three of us some times, doing the dance of customer service. Still, on some mornings, we have a line back to the door, people waiting for a con leche, a latte (same thing, really), an Americano, or one of our other specialty coffees. We toast bagels, 20 of them in a day, and go through a variety of other pastries.
Someone said, "be careful what you wish for, you might get it." We wished for an even more successful business. We think we found it!
