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

Mileage from Your Website Design

The process of redesigning a website is a big undertaking and the decision to do start it is often pushed to the back burner. How do we know this? Because we have seen hundreds of businesses push off redesigns and redevelopment work. Sometimes you just get too busy, sometimes you are waiting for a new version of software to be released and other times it is a financial or other resource issue. … 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.
