Last night Gov. Newsome issued guidelines for the entire state of California to "shelter in place" for at least the next three weeks. We saw that coming and that's why we proactively made the decision last night to shut down the public cafe side of the business. But now that everyone is supposed to stay home indefinitely, you are gonna need your favorite coffee to brew at home to help get you through the dark days ahead, right? Don't worry, we are here for you!
We will be in the roastery (next door to the shop) today between at least 12-3, madly packaging up hundreds of pounds of freshly roasted coffee beans. We will also be open for bean sales ONLY during that time, so come in and stock up on your favorite coffee to get you though the next few weeks. (Note that we offer a 5% discount for orders packaged in bulk bags, 5 lb minimum). If you can't make it in today or at all, feel free to call us with your order (we will be checking messages frequently) and we will deliver locally (safe and sanitary drop to your doorstep!) or make arrangements for pickup. We are also working on some web enhancements to allow you to order and prepay online for local pick up or delivery. Maybe some pop-up bean sale days at the shop will be possible too, depending on what the public health authorities have to say about that.
Honestly we are making things up as we go along but we are all in this together so bear with us as we put new procedures in place to keep the caffeine flowing.
With love and gratitude,
Your friends at GCR
