SCG Store Opening Shindig: This Sunday

We’re (almost) totally settled in and ready to show off our new digs! Please join us this Sunday, November 14th, from 12pm – 4pm at our new location (6911 216th St SW, Lynnwood WA 98036) and help us celebrate a new chapter in our story!

Gail, Kat, Jessica and Allison will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about equipment, demonstrate gear and provide any buying advice you may need — plus we’ll have a few special guest stars:

La Marzocco
Andy & Scott from La Marzocco will be on hand, pulling shots on the GS/3 and talking about the machine. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about La Marzocco and the GS/3.

Velton’s Coffee
Velton will be here with an arsenal of Hario V60 pour overs, serving up tastings of three of his favorite single origins as well as his limited edition Holiday Blend.

If you needed more of an incentive to come party with us, we’re also holding a trivia drawing with a grand prize of a $100 Seattle Coffee Gear gift certificate! Show off how much you know about our videos and you may be richly rewarded.

Should be a fun, casual and tasty get together — hope to see you Sunday!

Seattle Coffee Gear’s Store is Moving!

We’ve talked about it a bit here and there — in our newsletter, on Facebook and Twitter — but thought we’d make it official here. Seattle Coffee Gear’s retail store is moving locations at the end of this month and here’s all the details:

We’ll be at our current location (4210 196th St SW, Lynnwood WA 98036) through this Saturday, October 30th — open for our usual hours of 10am – 6pm. We’ll then be moving real-quick-like and be open for business at the new joint beginning Monday, November 1st (also our regular hours of 10am – 6pm).

The new store is located at 6911 216th St SW, Lynnwood WA 98036, just a few miles southwest of our current location.

We’re growing! We moved our headquarters (repairs, offices, shipping and inventory operations) to a much larger facility earlier this year, and now it’s time for the store to follow. This means that all of our services will again be under one roof again, making it much easier for you to get the services you need.

In celebration of the move, we’ll be hosting and Opening Shindig on Sunday, November 14, from 12 – 4. We’ll have reps from Seattle-based manufacturer La Marzocco here, pulling shots from and answering questions on the GS/3, as well as other goodies and local vendors. We’re also holding a trivia contest that will test your knowledge of Gail & Kat’s videos — with a $100 SCG gift certificate grand prize!

Whether you can make it to the opening or can come up during another time, definitely come check out our new digs! We’re really excited about it and look forward to working with you in our new space.

Perfect Packaging

If you need to send in your machine to us for a repair and haven’t kept the original packaging, you need to take some care in packing to make sure it doesn’t get damaged during shipping. We often see machines come in with scratched up surfaces from lose drip trays or portafilters, so we thought that Dane, our shipping manager, could give a brief run through on his recommended packaging.
