Upper Left Roasters Store

In August, we launched Upper Left Roaster’s first website.

We’re happy to say that we just wrapped up the first major extension to the site—a shop! Customers can now buy Upper Left’s delicious coffee, gift cards, and other neat merchandise directly from the café for delivery.

We leveraged the clever Snipcart platform to provide basic commerce functionality, while allowing products to be defined directly within the Kirby Panel. Customers only ever communicate directly with Snipcart, so there was only a thin layer of server-side technology to implement before the store sprung to life.

Among the benefits of Snipcart was the highly customizable appearance of the cart and checkout—we were able to retain the site’s unconventional but fun design all the way through to order confirmation.
