Have you ever thought of owning your own restaurant or Cafe’? Here’s a sneak preview of our Summer at Old Cal Coffee in San Marcos Ca. As most of you know, we purchased Old Cal Coffee three years ago and we have been working hard to improve the business each year. This year was no exception as we replace a majority of the equipment to help us do our job better and faster.
One of our newest equipment purchases was this beautiful Royal double Espresso Bar. This machine is a beauty as it pulls the perfect shot every time! We are so proud of this baby as Coffee is the heart of our business, we must be able to pull the best shots in town!
Another piece of the puzzle was this beautiful new Espresso Grinder. You might think that it is not a big deal that we purchased a new grinder, but it really does make a difference. The new espresso grinder grinds the espresso beans perfectly, every time and it does it fast and quietly. The funny joke at the coffee shop is when we pull decaf shots, we are using the old espresso grinder for the decaf shots because it is much better than the old decaf grinder that we purchased from the last owner, Anyways, the running joke at the coffee shop is that the decaf espresso grinder used to be the good one. It was quieter and faster than the old decaf grinder that we used to have. Oh yea, these new employees have no idea what the old employees went through at Old Cal Coffee. Thank Goodness, we are running the cafe’ properly, so that we can get new equipment and treat our employees the way they should be treated!
Oh Yea, Did we mention the wrap station finally took a dump on us too! Yea! lot’s of fun… NOT! You can’t make sandwiches without a wrap station and even worse… if the temperature in any of our refrigeration isn’t at the proper temperature, all kinds of bad things can happen. That’s why we spared no expanse when it came to purchasing new refrigeration equipment and this new wrap station is beautiful! it holds everything that we need, it keeps the food at a constant proper temperature and allows us to produce a tremendous amount of volume!
Did we mention we had to get a new toaster oven too? Yes, it seems like everything broke this Summer, but we knew the equipment was old from the previous owner. We are just glad that we are running a successful business that allows us the ability to purchase new equipment to keep this place running smooth! Did we mention how many bagels we are going through now? No wonder the toaster over broke! I have increased the amount of bagels three times this year and we were still running out of bagels, so I increased the amount of bagels again and we now have even more bagels in stock now at all time!
You would think that my story is over…. I wish! The last two things that we purchased this Summer was a new coffee grinder for the regular coffee beans, not the espresso beans and a new coffee brewer. Again, having new equipment, not only ensures that the product is produced properly, but it makes a huge difference in the taste of the products. We are very proud of Old California Coffee House and Eatery in San Marcos California and we are the BEST Coffee Shop in San Diego because we care and strive to be the BEST at everything we do, regardless of whether you know about it or not!
Enjoy all the Upgrades at Old Cal Coffee in San Marcos Ca. Voted Best Coffee Shop in San Diego three years in a row!
