A promising first week.

We had our first official, full day of business on this wonderful Monday in Reno. A nice, cool morning made for good coffee-drinkin' weather. And the day brightened up just enough to make the patio area perfect for an afternoon iced coffee.

For those of you that have been following the blog or keeping up on the news as we've progressed up to this point, you may have heard a little bit about the hours we were hoping to keep on a day-to-day basis. The way it's looking now, after actually spending a few days in the coffeeshop, I believe the boss and I have come to a final agreement in regards to business hours. We decided that Sunday-Thursday we'd keep doors open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, we're hoping, will be a little better for evening hours, and we've decided to keep the doors open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. But until we've built a solid customer base, gotten the word out about The Hub, and received some strong feedback from the community for a change to later hours throughout the week, we think early morning and early afternoon are our key points in the day. Either way, we hope everyone comes to Hub it when they can, and keep in mind that your feedback about what we're doing is important!

Today was a great day at the shop. From 6:30 a.m. to close, there was at least one person at any time hanging around and enjoying something from The Hub: lots of old friends, and many new customers as well. Thank you for your support! Let's hope that the constant flow maintains, but the strength of that flow increases exponentially!

We have some amazing choices at The Hub this week. If you haven't already been in to try our iced coffee, I highly recommend that you do. We use a cold brew process exclusive to The Hub in the Reno area, and coupled with the fact that we have some truly delicious coffees to brew up in this manner, it really is a treat! Refreshing, tasty, and a good pick-me-up in the heat of the afternoon. Learn a bit more at, and make sure you come to The Hub for some one-on-one with me!
