Memories, Milestones and Manicures

Manicures? Yes, I said Manicures, but I will get to that in a moment, first let me talk about some of my favorite memories from 25 years of Klatch, a milestone we reached in 2018. My earliest memories are of working in the Rancho Klatch, local bands on the patio, Mexican Mochas (still my favorite with the Ibarra Chocolate), the dream to average $1,000 per day in sales, and my endless search for better coffee that had me buying from 6 different roasters in 1993 (I was the original multi-roaster coffee house). Long days at UC Riverside trying to get my degree with longer nights behind the espresso machine, and lots of espresso.
