13 years in business today! We opened December 14th 2004, with the hope of making a friendly neighbourhood spot to get a great coffee. We had an espresso machine (with a manual in Italian only) that we practiced pulling shots on day and night for six months. We spent months building, sanding, painting, and installing. We learned how to tile a floor. We learned how to make a chalkboard menu. We tested out so many recipes (taste-testing cookies is hard work, guys!) Then, we opened. We took it one day at a time. Over the years we’ve made changes (Cafe 932!) and updates, and learned a lot along the way. We have had a lot of help too. Thank you Mum, @jenetteumphrey
for helping out in the shop, and looking after our ‘Little Bear!’ Thank you Dad, for building the shop and helping us perfect our cookie recipes! Thank you Mom, @cherylrumley
for being our best coffee-taster, and Dad, for the new shelves, and fixing everything from equipment to lighting to help make the shop run smoothly. Thank you to all our brothers and sisters for being our best customers! Thank you to our son, for giving us the motivation to work harder. And a very, very special thank you to Sarah @rumley
