Joan d'Amico with long time customer Marilyn Oliva
The most important part of this make-over is that the brand new Dietrich coffee roaster , which was delivered back in May, has found a spot in the back of the store. You may remember that d'Amico stopped roasting coffee when their old machine caught fire back in 2012. And of course, there was that pesky neighbor who insisted on calling 311 to complain about the roasting smell.
That's all behind Joan and Frank d'Amico now. The third generation, family-owned business, which has been operating in this space since 1948, is now ready for the few decades.
