Home Brewer Guide

Posted by on July 2, 2020

This is by far the most common brew method in people’s households. Although you can get a coffee machine anywhere, the Specialty Coffee Association has a list of certified home brewers HERE. These machines meet the requirements to brew the best extraction of your FMRC coffee. No matter what machine you have, follow these instructions to get the most out of your home brewer. 

What you need for this brew:

  • Home brewer
  • Coffee filter
  • Filtered water
  • Grinder (or pre-ground coffee) for auto drip 
  • Scale (or tbsp scoop)

 

STEP BY STEP HOME BREWER PREPARATION:

STEP 1 • Place the coffee filter in the basket and run a small amount of water through it to eliminate any papery taste.

STEP 2 • Use 8 grams of coffee per 5oz. of water or number of cups. For example: The Bonavita 8-cup is maxed out at 40 oz., so you would need 64 grams of coffee. If you don’t have a scale, 1 heaping tablespoon per cup will work. Place coffee in the filter and shake lightly to level.

STEP 3 • The total brew time should be between 4-6 minutes. Some machines offer pulse settings which elongates the brew time if it’s too short. 

STEP 4 • When it’s finished, remove the filter with coffee to prevent any dripping onto your machine or counter.

STEP 5 • Grab your favorite mug and enjoy!

 

Dining Room Updates + Safety Protocols (updated 7/3/20)

Posted by on June 2, 2020

You WOW us every day with your support, and we are grateful. We believe that transparency is important as we are all navigating new and unknown territory. We love to be a part of your daily routines. Please bear with us because there are a few changes we have made that may seem unexpected. 

We are not following phases exactly and in most cases are operating in a more conservative way.

After nearly 16 years of counter service, you will now check-in with a friendly masked and sanitized host. They will seat you, and then a server will take your order at your table. This will allow us to limit the number of people in our spaces, the number of guests at each table (no more than 6), and ensure that your table is sanitized and socially distanced before you sit. 

We are requiring our staff to wear masks. We are asking that all guests who are able, wear a mask when not seated at their table or when interacting with us.

Staff is required to be symptom-free before reporting to a shift. We are utilizing CDC guidelines promoting handwashing, facemasks, social distancing, sanitizing, and training staff on health measures. We will be maintaining our already high standards of cleanliness while adding more frequent cleaning practices. We want to thank the medical professionals at Complete Health Partners for their guidance and support. 

We have made changes in order to manage lines, eliminate paper menus (although they will be available if needed), and cut down on other high touchpoints such as condiment bars. We have also installed contactless payment options (yay Apple Pay!).

Due to the unique features and layout of each location, the flow may vary. But, the general policies, safety changes, and high levels of service will be the same. We will also be keeping some of the products and amenities we have added in the past few months including groceries and prepared foods, as well as online ordering for curbside pickup or delivery.

Tickets to our July wine dinners will be limited, with socially distanced tables.

Hours will continue to be 7 am – 8 pm at all locations until further notice. We are looking forward to seeing you soon! As always, please email us at frothycares@frothymonkey.com if you have any questions. 

 

// Dining Room Update //

Limited seating with table service is available at all locations.

Online ordering with curbside pickup or delivery is available at all locations

Frothy Updates 5/25

Without the unending support of our communities, these last 2+ (very challenging) months may have broken us. Thanks to you all, and one kickass team working around the clock, we are somehow still here. There are no adequate words to express our gratitude, but we want you to know that we will continue to be here for you, as you all have for us.

Our dining areas will remain closed at this time, but we are still open for take out and delivery. Our goal is for each guest who enjoys Frothy to feel comfortable and confident in their experience.

As a small business, a family, and members of our community, we want to be part of the solution and do our part to provide and sustain jobs during this pandemic. Like you, we want Frothy to survive and thrive, and we want to serve you in the safest way possible.

We are creating our own timeline for opening our dining areas based on the responsibility to provide for the unique needs of our staff, guests and neighborhoods.

We are working diligently to make thoughtful changes to our operations and service in order to begin opening our dining areas in some capacity, but we are just not ready yet. As you can imagine, there are so many adjustments to be made, so please stay tuned for updates.

Thank you for your continued support, your patience, and your kindness to us and to each other. #frothylove

Frothy Downtown Nashville will reopen for take out Sunday May 17th

Posted by on May 13, 2020

Frothy Monkey to reopen in Downtown Nashville with meals, drinks, and groceries for take out and delivery

Opening day is Sunday, May 17th at 7am

After being closed since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be reopening the Downtown Frothy (235 5th Ave North, Nashville, TN 37219) for take out and delivery *THIS SUNDAY* May 17th at 7am for curbside brunch service. Hours will be 7am – 8pm every day with online ordering. Breakfast will be available until 5pm and dinner starts at 4pm. Beyond regular menu items and to-go drinks, essentials such as groceries and prepared foods will also be available.

“Our priority is to serve Avenue of the Arts and the surrounding neighborhood in the safest way possible, and the residents of downtown are our focus,” said Amber Mauldin, the General Manager of the 5th Ave location. “We hope to take advantage of this slower time to connect with our neighbors.”

Downtown Nashville is one of six Tennessee neighborhoods that Frothy serves. On Sunday, March 15th we quietly opened their much anticipated East Nashville location in Lockeland Springs for take out only in the midst of tornado recovery and pandemic shutdowns. “That was definitely the most unique restaurant opening we’ve ever done,” said Jennifer Sheets co-owner and Creative Director. “But, we were surrounded by need and we were able to provide a resource for meals, coffee, groceries, and a daily dose of happiness for our neighbors.” 

We hope that reopening on Avenue of the Arts will provide the same there as well. We look forward to seeing you!
