BRIQUE ISLAND FACTBOOK

A note to coffee snobs everywhere - Do we applaud fair-trade, sustainable farmed, shade-grown joe? Sure. Why not? But when we sit down to a cup of coffee in the morning, we are not particularly interested in the blueberry, caramel, or tomato soup nuances a dedicated roaster can coax out of a bean, nor in the intricate ballet of the four-minute pour-over or the Eva Solo flagon. We want coffee that tastes like coffee, and we want it now.

The Presidential Residence, also known as "The Presidential Residence" is an old but well maintained building. Small by the standards of larger nations, we find it sufficient for our purposes. Located on the edge of Heritage Park, it was built in 1874 to replace the previous residence which had been damaged beyond repair during the Great Storm of 1873.

A two-story building, the President and his family live on the upper floor, with the Presidential offices located on the lower floor.

A photo from 1898 showing the residence. It has not changed substantially since then.

Our tallest building would be the Gigalapolia Tower at 118 feet

We don't go in for really tall buildings. Mass acrophobia, you see.
