Monday March 20, 2006....... We opened Mercury at 7am........ For the first time........
Things sure were a lot different back then. You'll notice a disconnected phone booth onthe noth wall there. Does any one remember the phone booth?!
You'll also notice where the windows are now. No windows... Then there were 'Leather Coats', but they weren't very warm in the winter months.
And that sign that used to hang above the door found a new place on the brick wall. It's one of those things that I don't notice all the time but when I look over and see it, I realize how many changes have gon on in the last four years.
we've reopened! let's hear it for those guys that made the rennovations happen!
A cast of others including Grasby and Dave
Please come down and see all the changes! A few include- more seats, freshly brewed french presses, and our new monumental mercury espresso blend, which contains and Ethiopian and Costa Rican bean. Au revoir mes amis!!
Most of you know all about the upcoming renovations, right? On the 22nd we will be closed for a shop overhaul and we'll be returning on the 28th? Ring a bell? How about the fact that we're going to have a new espresso blend, geared specifically to our strict specifications? How about that one, huh tough guy? We haven't even filled you in on our biggest paradigm shift, because some might say that it's too huge. But here's the thing, I'm willing to let the cat out of the bag to you; the anonymous peope of the interweb. You ready? Once you hear it there is no going back.
Take the red pill!
WE SWITCHED FROM WINDOWS TO LINUX!!!!!!
I know, right, this is a huge shock! It's tough to get used to, but I took about 15 minutes to familiarize myself with it and now I am a master. Let me now regail you with the best Linux joke the interneat has to offer:
If anyone gives me a strawberry milk today I will give them a million. Seriously, I just had the best soggy milk with my cereal and it was tinged with strawberry flavour from the disgusting dried strawberries and now I have the THIRST FOR MORE!!!!
COME TO ME, SO THAT TOGETHER WE WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN THE ABYSS. TODAY I AM ENCOURAGING YOU TO ADD NO SUPPLEMENTARY CONDIMENTS TO YOUR COFFEE. BY DOING SO YOU WILL BE EMBRACING THE DARK EVIL THAT IS COFFEE.
CAN U DIG IT?
ANGELS AND DEMONS, YO, TOM HANKS AUDREY TAUTO, CHECK IT. UPDATE: COFFEE IS NOT EVIL, BUT I AM BECAUSE I AM A GOTH. PREPARE TO BE SACRIFICED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did anyone see the new aquateen hunger force with the rabbit robot come back?
Hey there coffee connoisseurs! This is Mumbles Mcgee and Boom Boom Box coming to you live from Mercury Sunday, where the best soul hits blare and the highest quality coffee flows! Yesterday I didn't get a chance to get a word in about the Ikirezi Burundi Ngozi. Sadly for you guys, it's all gone! I bought the last bag. Sorry. But it was my favourite coffee on press in weeks! The earthy apple notes coupled with AJ's pretty face put a smile on my face all day! Hopefully we'll see that one again.
Today we're cupping some of the Kenya French Mission Varietal from Dark City. We're definite fans. There is a nice light, nutty earthiness with what I find to be a grapefruity citrusy spin in the aroma and aftertaste. Come try some or buy a bag for the folks at home!
