A lot has happened since the last blog post! Time to catch up!
Christmas has been and gone! Thanks for visiting! We had a great time in the cafes. Now we are well and truly into the new year which will be the year we start roasting coffee!
After our equity crowdfunding raise last year which saw us raise just shy of £190k and welcome 230 new shareholders into the Apothecary family, the hard work has been going on behind the scenes. The building warrant was all approved last week and so we are getting very close on starting to turn this building into The Coffee Apothecary coffee roastery
We are super excited and can't wait for it to start to take shape. The coffee roasting machine is due to arrive from America in late September which feels like a long way away but we have lots to do by then!
We are also very excited that our evening opens in our Ellon cafe are coming back this week. We made the call in December that with the uncertainty around omicron and with a few staff members moving on just after Christmas that we wouldn't open in the evenings in January. The uncertainty has thankfully now passed, the staff have been hired and we are ready to rock and roll. We will be back open this coming Friday and Saturday, 11th and 12th of February, before opening every Wednesday through to Saturday evenings from the following week. Looking forward to seeing you there!
