The Roastery

I've been spending more time in coffee shops lately, especially now that I learned it's acceptable to drink tea rather than java.  The Bridgehead chain has done very well here in Ottawa and there are several locations.  The newest is part shop, part roasting factory.  It is full of computer operated stainless steel containers, large hoppers, ducts and various industrial scaled equipment immediately beside the shop.  It all looks very sophisticated and complex, but even for a tea drinker smells wonderful.

  1. Dear John,
    I am the architect for the Roastery pictured in your sketch. Tracey shared the link with me just today. Love it!! you have done a great job capturing the machinery - not an easy task! Your people have good character. Keep on sketching!
