PARDON the dust and the crazy tractors...it's crazy at our Anacapa St store right now, but don't you worry, this construction is almost over, and when it is we will have a beautiful new parking lot with both entrances restored and a shiny new building next door. We are almost ready to show off the completed roastery too- stay tuned- and come on in- behind the construction fences is a veritable oasis of coffee magic. Thanks for your patience Santa Barbara, we love you.
These is so much to talk about! Our very own Nick Purvis placed 4th In a very stacked south west barista championship on Sunday. Nick competed using @castlecoffeeroasters which means h made us double proud. As you know, Castle is our new roasting arm of The French Press, and with beautiful coffees coming in, and delicious coffee bevs going out, the sky is the limit. We are so proud to have Nick represent us at the US Barista Competition in April. Stay tuned, and we will be serving Nick's competition espresso this week as our single origin espresso so come taste the magic. #thankyousantabarbara #santabarbara #bigwestern #fun #coffee #nicecoffee #happiness #palmtrees @castlecoffeeroasters #california #losangeles #party
