Fall has brought the fruits of some creative collaborations seeded earlier in the season. It’s always so inspiring to see what can be created when a group of individuals, with a variety of artistic talents, join forces. We had the honor of collaborating on a  bodaciously-styled photoshoot, which was recently featured on Wedding Day Magazine’s blog! Thanks so much to all the wonderful folks who teamed up to turn a passing idea into something really beautiful.

One last big thing–for some time now, we’ve been actively on the hunt for a home for a year-round brick and mortar operation. We are happy to announce  we have found a great fit and future home inside the State Street Marketplace!

We are very much looking forward to brewing coffee alongside our friends Waxwing Vintage, Wren the Butcher, Monkeyfist brewing, Crafted TC, Zaitun Cafe, and Franny’s F QueWith this new development, we have decided to wind down the truck for the 2017 season, (aside from the monthly brunch pop-ups) so we can hit the ground running with everything it takes to get our shop licensed equipped/stocked/ready to roll with a rad little set up.

 

 

Planetary Coffee Buildout Phase 1

 

In mid-March 2016, we took our little rover down to Kingsley where we left it in the capable hands of the hard-working folks at Paul’s Auto & RV

The first thing we wanted to tackle was updating the existing serving window. It was lacking in both functionality and security.

Say hello to the  super sleek serving window expertly installed at Paul’s. Now we can pop this bad-boy open with ease and style.

In addition to the stellar serving window, these pro’s hooked us up with some much needed roof exhaust fans and properly insulated the ceiling.

Now that we got our mobile coffee unit back, we can begin phase two of the buildout. Over the Memorial Day weekend we will begin to install  the walls, after which we’ll be tackling the Examiner’s electrical needs.  Once walls are walled and wires are wired, we’ll install the plumbing, equipment, and counters to brew tasty coffee upon.

To be continued. Stay tuned for the Phase 2 update.
