This is our last week of operating our Coffeeco Espresso Bar at the Kingston Centre location. We have enjoyed 8 1/2 years of profitable operation in this busy location, but have decided that we would not be renewing our lease when it expires in 2018, and instead focus on our wholesale roasting operation.
As mentioned in my previous post, we have agreed to sell this location to a long time employee and her husband, who will operate under the new name of "The Kingston Coffee House". Rest assured that the new owners will continue to offer our fresh, fair trade organic coffee exclusively, and to continue to bake on site, and offer only organic milk for every drink on the menu. All customers who have accumulated loyalty rewards points at this location can still use their Gift Cards at either Coffeeco in Market Square, Multatuli Coffee on Progress Avenue or online.
I expect to be making an exciting announcement regarding the relocation of our Wholesale Roastery, and the creation of a Regional Centre for coffee roasting, coffee equipment, hands on coffee education and espresso training in Kingston.
