If you head over to you can see a really fancy picture of our new reg barber tamper that the Safehouse family saved our tips for. It's ok if you don't really know what it's for. I will explain it here.

In making espresso in an espresso machine it is very important that the ground coffee is packed at an exact pounds per square inch. If it is too loose the coffee will under extract and taste weak and watery. If the coffee is too tight, your coffee will be over extracted and bitter. This is the end of the tutorial.

Anyway this tamper is the most important and acclaimed tamper on the market and helps the barista create the finest espresso possible. At $122 for a stick with a metal plate you may be thinking we are crazy but just wait until you taste the difference.

Iceland is still hungry more on that in the days to come when we see what the government does about the demand for resignations and such.

Very cool barista-y guy came in the shoppe today to talk coffee... he ended up running the bar... we are terrible hosts. This distraction also caused a break down in the space/time continuum resulting in forgetting to send a box of goody treats to

Was just informed that the post office was closed today... SCORE!

Any last but not least the twitter bug is suffocating the whole Safehouse family in mind warping pleasure and you should all get one and follow us and we will follow you.
