Hillsborough Rd Updates and the Helium Core

We hope all the moms out there are having an amazing Mother's Day. We love having you and your families be part of CC every day!

-------

In the coming weeks, we'll be rolling out our summer menu for both locations. We're slimming down the W Geer Menu a bit, building up the Hillsborough Rd menu and continuing to explore in our way with rotating seasonal recipes. 

We've tweaked our beta hours at Hillsborough Rd a few times as we continue to develop full team capacity and learn our patterns. Please check here first for hours. http://www.cocoacinnamon.com/hours-locations/

--------------

Our close friend, Brandon Hoe, has hit over 86% of his Kickstarter minimum goal in the first 12 days of his campaign for the Helium Core -- a Bull City developed rig that lets you configure your iPhone into a custom on-the-go video and photo micro prosumer setup.

If you have an iPhone and take pictures or video with it, check out the Bull City developed Helium Core and share with your other iPhone loving friends.  Let's keep Bull City innovation strong!

Brandon has been supporting Cocoa Cinnamon, like all of you, since we were bikeCOFFEE. He helped paint and clean at 420 W Geer Street and he is the one who suggested our second location on Hillsborough Rd.

Hi Everyone!

As you well know Cocoa Cinnamon came out of a lot of hard work, vision and the tremendous support of our community.  Thousands of people have and continue to be an integral part of building and sustaining our project.  Starting from a bike, building a shop, then expanding to another, we have been able to do so with great love and success with our community near and far.  Tonight I would like to note one person who has been on our "team" from the very beginning: Brandon Hoe

We're sharing this here as you are all kickstarters and he is about to launch a Kickstarter campaign for a cool gadget we've had the good fortune of seeing him develop.  It's called the Helium Core - the basic building block for iPhoneography - in short a prosumer interface to use interchangeable lenses and rig all sorts of gear such as a microphone to turn your iphone into a nimble and well equipped shooting device. 

More info and pictures here: http://www.heliumcine.com/

Brandon is having a launch party tomorrow, Saturday, April 8th from 3pm to 4:30pm at Fullsteam Brewery in Durham.

We hope you'll come and check out this awesome Durham developed gadget and be part of making this happen.  His Kickstarter campaign will launch on April 26th.

Also, as a quick update Cocoa Cinnamon on Hillsborough Road is off to an awesome start.

We're still building out the menu and the hours; we just added evening hours Thursday through Saturday and Sundays from 9am to 8pm.

Spoon University just covered the new shop in the most beautiful way...and led to CC being listed as oen of Spoon University Best 25 Coffee Shops in America.

And Spoon wrote an in detail article with pics of the new location --https://duke.spoonuniversity.com/place/heres-get-cocoa-cinnamon-ii-immediately/

Love CC

Bull City represent in the final hours of our #CSC!

Wow! We've broken the record for highest number of Squareholders for a Community Sourced Capital campaign ever!

Thanks to so many of our Kickstarter supporters who have come on board!

We are within reach of raising the most ever for a CSC campaign (50K cap). The money will help us setup better seating out front and build out our training/public tasting room more substantially from the beginning.

We are running to the finish in these final hours #BullSpeedAhead ! Will you help us spread the word that the campaign will end 10pm tonight? And if you haven't yet, please take a look at our page and consider becoming a Squareholder. It's a crowdfunded loan in increments of $50 that we pay back.

There are probably lots of people out there who want to take part and a post or friendly reminder will remind them and help us create up to 19 more living wage and career jobs and keep Durham one of a kind.

Thank you all so much. We hope you have a lovely day and watch with us the grand finale of this campaign as it crescendos into the final hours!

With love and appreciation,

Leon and Areli
