What of The Grind?

Very much loved your coffee article of last week but was disappointed that the Downtown Grind, that opened on Gay Street going on seven years ago, was never mentioned! ["Revenge of the (Coffee) Nerds" by Cari Wade Gervin, Dec. 16, 2010] We use Vienna coffee, have a marvelous peppermint mocha, umbrellas and fresh flowers on the patio in the springtime, and some great jazz to put the right spin on your red-eye! I have worked here for most of the seven years and have loved every minute!
