It's been a long time coming but we've finally "finished" a major revision to windwardcoffee.com. I say "finished" with a great sense of irony, mostly because sites like this are never really done. We're pleased with how it's evolving and hope you find our new home attractive and easy to use.
In addition to our bright new look and hopefully easier navigation, we've made numerous more subtle changes throughout the site. Many of them are back office revisions you won't see but they add significantly more flexibility and ease in keeping the site vibrant, up to date and easy to use. That's important because with the exception of some heavy lifting coding that requires an outside expert, everything you see here is "home-brewed" by yours truly - including the overall design, original photography and copy. While it's an enjoyable mashup of skills developed during a long career in film, television and magazine publishing, I'd much rather be roasting the coffees you enjoy than maintaining the site.
We have made one major change to the products we offer, and it was not an easy decision. After much gnashing of teeth, we've decided, at least for the foreseeable future, to no longer offer the grinders that have been in our lineup since we opened our doors in 2007. We've done this for a variety of reasons but mostly because we'd rather focus even more keenly on sourcing and roasting great coffees for your enjoyment than keeping grinders in inventory. Even though we no longer offer them, we still think Baratza offers the best value grinders on the home market. If you're considering a new machine they are very much worth investigating.
Please let me know what you think of the changes we've made and remember to make this the best day you possibly can - hopefully with a cup of Windward goodness at your side!
