Introducing the Jura Z6!

WebCitz is happy to announce the addition of the Jura Z6 to its team! This mechanical barista comes with all the bells and whistles people have come to expect in an espresso machine. You can forget separate devices to grind coffee and froth milk – this new team member takes appliance downsizing to a new level. The internal hopper and grinder for coffee beans, as well as the internal frothing system for milk, allow this new hire to replace three other machines and put out a caramel macchiato in a fraction of the time of its predecessor, bless her soul. The time savings provided by this beauty surprisingly result in a return on investment of 90 days, and the eventual disappearance of the burr grinder (left) and one of the milk frothers (right) pictured in the image below. If you are in the local area please stop by our offices and meet the new team member! … Read More

Coffee Machine Down!

It comes with great sorrow that we must announce the recent passing of our espresso machine. She has been part of the WebCitz family since March 2012 and delighted our staff and customers with more than 10,000 coffee beverages ranging from espressos and Americanos to full out caramel macchiatos. The many years in the constant grind at WebCitz were simply too much for this lady to handle. In her final days she was overcome by a water leak, heating core and water pump malfunction. The curtains may have been pulled too early on her show, but the memory of her contributions to the company will last a lifetime. … Read More

Excel Tip How to Check for and Remove a Trailing Comma

Excel Tip / Trick: How to Check for and Remove a Trailing Comma

If you have ever worked with a spreadsheet that had lots of data – perhaps thousands or tens of thousands of rows – then you know the importance of formulas. We would like to share a handy formula with you that will check a cell for a trailing comma (or other character) and remove it. Please keep in mind that this formula actually checks to see if the last character is a comma – it will not just remove the last character in the cell no matter what – a crucial check for anyone that might not have such a problem on all cells. … Read More

Peyton Receiving a Pep Talk

Here is a great picture from within the office last Friday, featuring Corey giving Peyton a pep talk before the big game this past Sunday. As you might know, this pep talk must have been beneficial since it supposedly helped Peyton and company beat out a team whose quarterback threw for over 500 yards with 5 touchdowns, breaking franchise records and entering into an elite select group of quarterbacks. It should be known that we are a pro Green Bay team – we just like to have fun with the Fat Head! … Read More
