La Colombe opens a decaffeination plant in Port Richmond.

I will gladly take the caffeine they dispose of.

I drove by this last week. I was excited to see they were set up in PR.
I drink decaf at night occasionally. I'm not a cup or six drinker of regular and about half my coffee intake is decaf

decaf is worse than light beer and vegetarian sushi... rubbish! but jobs in Richmond are good so +1 La Colombe

Empty factories to the east and all our waste
The shape of things that came shows on the broken workers face

Without decaf coffee, where would soda junkies source their own caffeine?

They've been roasting their coffee on Tioga Street for quite awhile. Is this at the same place I wonder? Or another building?

I thought it was Thompson Street but it doesn't say where.

Oh good, I was thinking of making my own version of Four Loco. I'm glad I can source my ingredients locally.

I'm scared to try to make Faux Loco. I have not yet seen those particular British energy pills that the recipe calls for.

So I said to him, "Look, buddy.Your car was upside down when we got here. And as for your grandma, she shouldn't have mouthed off like that"

Now I am wondering which warehouse they bought and whether I looked at it.

This is a long shot, but does anyone know someone at La Colombe? I'd love to talk to them about greening the roasting process (since I am sure some of it can be applied to brewing).
