Change in Ownership at Hartford Coffee

Word on the street (and seemingly starting to percolate, pun intended, through the employee ranks) is that beloved South City staple Hartford Coffee Company has been sold, with the new owners being two gentlemen from the neighborhood. We don't know yet of any planned changes, but seeing as it's one of our favorite haunts, we wish all good things for the future!

And, of course, godspeed to James and Shannon.

Know more details, anyone?

I was there on Monday. There were several official-looking older guys hanging around at length, poking around the kitchen with a city inspector. My friends and I at first assumed it was a run-of-the-mill surprise health department inspection, but after doing a little spying, it was obvious something unusual was happening.

I do know that James and his family have had a really trying year so far. I'd been hearing speculation of changes for the past few months, so I can't say I'm surprised. Very sad, but not surprised.
