Video: The Coffee Foundry in NYC

Posted on February 19, 2011 by

“Everything about The Coffee Foundry – from the small-batch backyard roasting to the methodical coffee preparation – probably seems inefficient to the average on-the-go city dweller. Yet these perceived limitations are exactly what allow co-founders Wilson Park and Norman Mui to hold total control over the experience they offer. Although they’ve been working to perfect […]

San Francisco’s Best Coffee App

Posted on January 8, 2011 by

Design-wise this is a very nice app. I appreciate the geo-location features, and the listing of factual-based information such as roaster, grinder, espresso machine (though these things have a tendency to change).
