At first glance, this rather suspicious-looking collection of laboratory glassware and slowly dripping fluid may look like something from Heisenberg’s laboratory, but it’s actually what’s known as a ‘Cold Brew’ coffee making system.
When you cold brew coffee, ice water is very slowly dripped through coarse-ground coffee beans. The result is a very flavorful coffee that’s much lower in acid and lacking the bitterness of the coffee you’re probably used to drinking.
Stop by Way Cool Beans to give it a try!

How best to describe Joanne Landis’ latest work?
That’s also the name of her next solo show, opening tomorrow night, right here at the Pajama Factory’s gallery!

When she’s not tending the greenhouse at the Pajama Factory, Sally Rizzo’s seemingly boundless enthusiasm for all things green and growing finds itself at the Lose Community Garden as a part of Mindful Harvest.
Keep up the great work, Sally!

We’ve been talking a lot lately about how the Pajama Factory is a great place to start a small business—there’s a tremendous amount of creative energy bouncing around within the brick walls! Here’s two more of our entrepreneurs:
On the left is Karen, who opened Roots Hair Studio on the first floor of Building Six, across the hall from Way Cool Beans. If you’ve noticed how much better-groomed all of the artists around the factory have been looking lately, Karen is the reason why. (https://www.facebook.com/RootsHairStudioByKaren)
On the right is Shana, from BATHVS, who makes a line of soaps, shampoos, conditioners and other products in her PJ Factory studio and sells them in Karen’s shop, and other places. (https://www.facebook.com/Bathvssoap)

Meet one of our very first bike recipients, Todd Foresman, owner of Way Cool Beans. Todd left his career in printing to follow his passion, coffee and his new bike gets him from home to the coffee shop everyday. Go see him and be sure to ask him about his pride and joy. No, seriously, ask him. It’s not what you think it is. It’s better.
