I’ve been meaning to post these pictures for a few months. You can tell they’re a few months old because the sun is shining and we’re in summer clothes. Even dated, the news is still exciting!
The Bramble Berry team met the mistakes goal and on-time shipping goal for the first three quarters of this year. That means that they shipped out 98% of orders placed within 1 business day and less than .5% of those orders had mistakes. The team was duly rewarded with a big reward.
Pictured above is the new Latte/Espresso/Do Everything machine. Look how big it is! The “Do Everything” machine even has its own milk refrigerator to keep the milk fresh. It is a behemoth of a machine that requires a special power outlet.
The staff are running amok, all hopped up on caffeine and twittering like a bunch of supercharged monkeys. It’s good that the machine showed up, right in time for our super-busy season! Andrew (lead packer) is up to 4 shots of espresso per day. We’re seriously considering limiting his intake for his own safety.
We’re definitely using those coffee grounds. The other night, our home smelled so strongly of coffee, it was like a coffee roast-off was happening inside. The smell was coming from the flower beds! =)
Carrie Gigi, I’m so glad that you like the little thank you notes. We are so thankful for our customers that it only makes sense to tell them at every chance we get.

It’s nice to know you let your “team” know that are appreciated~ so important to a company. I’ve never had a cup of coffee, but I know this latte/espresso stuff is very hot~ literally! Kudos to your wonderful staff…I like the personal touch inside the box that someone actually takes the time to write..”Thank-you Carrie” ~Always make me smile.
*grin* So, you are either composting all those coffee grounds (one of the best things to add to garden soil!) or you’re adding them to coffee soap, right?
You know, I’m going to have to suggest this type of team reward to my boss. Don’t think she’d go for it though. 🙁
