Berkshire Lumber

2 October, 2008: It’s no secret that my counter tops take their inspiration from Northampton Coffee. I love that place, and in part the level of care and energy that went into creating an environment that reflects the spirit of the place. Example: no art on the walls because the coffee is meant to be the art. Researching their counters… Read More

Selling water at Clover

5 July, 2017: People have been asking to buy bottles of water since 2008 when I opened the first truck. Those first weeks in October 2008 we had 1 sandwich. No sides. No drinks.
