What's up with our silence?

Our last post was July 29th. Unacceptable.

It's just funny because even though we are up to our eyeballs in work and trying to get this place open (in 2010 at least...) there isn't much new to write about. We are still working on the same permits that we've already written about. Our days are ISD, fire permits, building materials, plead, plead, plead.

On the upside, as you may have seen on our facebook page (Renee posted videos of it) we have been playing with our iced coffee recipe. We are doing a cold brew method, which yields a smoother, less bitter iced coffee than hot brewing it then putting it on ice. The first time we made it, we sifted the grounds through a very fine colander (to replace filters which are used in the hot brew process). However, it turned out a thicker coffee than we wanted. Through a process of trial and try again (we did one time try using traditional coffee filters), we decided how many times we want to strain our iced coffee to get a perfectly smooth, yet strong and rich iced coffee. We hope you like it as much as we do. I personally think it goes perfectly with a liege waffle. Just something to think about while we continue to try to open...

If you ever want some help taste-testing, I may know some food bloggers who would be up for the task!
