On Friday, Oct. 17th, FoJo Coffee Works opened to the public. We still had equipment and stock items arriving on Thursday, so we weren't able to do much advance advertising for the opening. Had to rely on word of mouth and customers that came to Jimmy's for burgers and wings.
This made for a sparse crowd, but allowed me to get organized behind the counter and work out some kinks.
I've also decided on our signature drink. My barista training manual calls it A Shot in the Dark. It's comprised of shots of espresso in a cup of dark roast coffee. For my purposes, I've renamed it.... The FoJo MoJo.
