Technology saves the day, especially Sunday

It’s kinda hard to try to grow a business when you’re consistently working remotely and your only touch with the online world is your cell phone. Yes I know that I can pretty much do everything on my cell that I can do on a computer hooked to the internet. I can access all my email accounts, I can use Twitter and Facebook easily, I have access to my online Calendar and Contacts, but the one thing I can’t do on a cell phone is watch 4 NFL games at once!!

A Match Made in Heaven

If you’ve followed us for a while you know that we team up a lot of times with the Tasty Bunz truck and when I say a lot I mean “a lot”. Like this week we are with them 5 days in a row for a total of 20+ hours together. Although we have love for all the other food trucks out there, we just seem to really get along with the whole Tasty Bunz crew.

If you have ever been to the Grouch-mobile you might have noticed two little metal figurines i keep at the service window. One is Darth Vader and the other is the ship Serenity from the TV show “Firefly”.

Keep Calm and Carry On

Every once in a while I mess up on making a drink. Yes I know it’s hard to believe but it is true. No honestly it’s true. It doesn’t happen that often (I’m sure Brother JJ has another story), but when it does I get kind of upset at myself. These mess up’s usually happen at the worse possible time, like when we have a line of people waiting for their drinks or when….actually that is the worst time it can happen.

Social Media Changes Everything…

It really does and it has been so important to us in our success so far. We use Twitter as the main way to communicate to our followers. We do use Facebook also but I always feel strange posting either the twitter feed or several messages a day on Facebook because I think people get irritated by that really fast and will block our posts.

Just Getting Started

It’s been about 6 months since we started Grouchy John’s Coffee and at that time we setup on a table, with a small espresso machine, a grinder, a Mr. Coffee coffee maker and no idea what the hell we were doing. Now we have better equipment, the Grouch-mobile, but still no idea what the hell we are doing.

Its all about the Hustle

As we continue with the quest to save people from the evils of bad coffee it is becoming more evident that just our mere presence at a location is not enough to draw in the uninitiated and that we have to “hustle” to bring people over. By “hustle” of course I mean give out free samples of our product or other free swag to let people know exactly what we serve.

This is a double shot?

I don’t claim to be an expert on this subject but I do have an opinion on what is good espresso. First of all espresso is a coffee brewing method not some special type of coffee bean, a blend, or some special roasting method. All coffee drinks, regardless if it is espresso coffee, drip coffee, pour over coffee, etc., are brewed by using water filtered through coffee grounds to extract the soluble flavors from the coffee into the cup.
