Loyalty, Feedback and More!

As many of you know, we are back with Square as our point of sale system at EVOKE.  While most of this has no change on you, there are a few things we wanted to let you know about that is to your advantage!  Here we go:

1. Pay with Square! For those that still have the “Square Wallet” app on your smartphone, you can use it again.  We understand that Square Wallet is no longer supported by the company but you can use it until the new version is available in all markets.

2. Loyalty Card!

Because we are back with Square, we are back to our electronic loyalty program. This is good news because it means that every time you spend $3.00 or more at EVOKE, you get a punch on your “card”.  When you fill your card (10 punches) you get a coupon for $3.00 off your next purchase. Easy.

There are no cards to keep track of.  To keep your card punches coming, you will need to send yourself an electronic receipt, either via email or text message.  If you are paying via Credit Card at the shop, it will ask you if you want a receipt. Just be sure you use the same method as this is how your card is tracked. If you are paying with cash, you cans till get your receipt sent to you.  You just need to tell the barista as they are checking you out that you would like to send yourself the receipt. Credit Card transactions will autofill your receipt preference, cash transactions will require you to manually enter that information each time.

3. Give us Feedback!

Once you get that receipt, we’d love to hear how we did.  It is super easy to give us feedback and we promise we look at each and every response. Give us the good and the bad as it help us get better!

We hope to sip with you soon!

Current Feature: Spyhouse Coffee

Summer is over and its time for a change. As most of you know, here at EVOKE, we strive to craft great beverages, and one thing that helps us do that is by offering some of the best coffees roasted in the US. For a while now we have been following our friends at Spyhouse Coffee Roasters up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Not too long ago they sent us a few of their coffee offerings, and we were so impressed with their quality and dedication to their craft that we have decided to share to love with all of you. 

We are happy to introduce you to SPYHOUSE and their coffee!  We know many of you have taken some home off the retail shelf as we have not been able to keep it in stock!  We will be stocking more of these coffees for you to enjoy at home or at work so hopefully we won’t be out when you come for a new bag!


Single Origin Offerings:

Don Pepe / Costa Rica
This Imperial Reserve from the San Isidro de Leon Cortes region features notes of blueberry jam, mango, and horchata

Finica Angelina / Costa Rica
Grown in the Western Valley on one of the Aguilera Brothers’ four farms this Villa Sarchi varietal is honey processed. Expect to find flavors reminiscent of graham, lemon meringue, and pisco.

Herminio Rivera / Honduras
With hints of vanilla blossom, rosehip, and chardonnay this Organic & Fair Trade Certified coffee comes from the Yarconte, Cucuyangua Copan region of Honduras

Las Nubes / El Salcador
Last, but certainly not least on our single origin offerings is this Kenya Processed Micro Lot from the Buenos Aries, Santa Ana regions. It boasts flavor notes of honey, almond paste & gin rickey

Espresso:

One of the offerings from Spyhouse which we are most excited about is their Orion Espresso. This blend of three coffees from Fazenda Sao Bendito; Brazil, Monserrate; Colombia, and Rophi; Ethiopa presents “a blend of chocolate tones and sweet fruits.” We think this espresso compliments our style and craft, and we hope you enjoy it; on its own, or with a tulip on top!



Thanks for listening, come have a sip and tell us what you think of our new coffees from Spyhouse Coffee Roasters.

Quick Note: We will be Closed July 21st, 2014!

First off - what the heck is up with this July weather?  x1000 please!  

Now, for the real meat of this note - we wanted to let you know that we will be closed on Monday, July 21st for our yearly clean and mend session.  

This time allows our staff to gather in the morning and have coffee together and then tear the place apart (inside and out) to freshen things up and make EVOKE the best place it can be for you to come, sip and talk.

We know this is a pain for you but we promise we will be open regular hours on Tuesday, July 22nd!

Thanks for understanding and bearing with us as we clean this place up!

(PS: Help us spread the word!)

2014 Le Tour de France

Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short as you feel. But ride. —Eddie Merckx

July. In our opinion, the most wonderful time of the year.  The cool weather, slight breeze, low humidity, perfect. July is the home of the Tour de France, one of bicycle racing’s most coveted 3 weeks of the year. This year’s version has proven, so far, to be another great one with millions of folks lining the route and riders going crazy to set the stage for the final day.

Yep, besides coffee, waffles and craft beer, not much is as dear to our hearts as cycling.  

We will be streaming EVERY STAGE of the Tour (like we always do!) and we’d love for you to swing through, grab a waffle and espresso and enjoy yourself.
