No matter what your beverage of choice, they all start with water. That’s why we invested in a state of the art water filtration system. Our two-stage filtration system filters the entire front of the house with a high-end carbon filter and a 5-micron particle filter.
The essence of a great latte’ or cappuccino isn’t the milk or added flavoring; it is the espresso! We calibrate our machine at least once a day and check it midday for timing and taste. Espresso shouldn’t be bitter or ‘tinny’. It should be smooth, strong, and even a little sweet. We work hard to serve a great shot.
Our coffee is brewed in 1.9 L air pots. Meaning we brew quite often. Why? Because that is the way coffee ought to be brewed. Grind fresh, brew frequently. Our local roasting partners work hard to provide us a great product. It deserves to be served to our customers piping hot and freshly prepared.
We do cold brew old school, 1 gallon at a time. We grind our beans course then use cold, fresh water and place our cold brew in the fridge for a full 24 hours. No pillow packs, no 5-gallon buckets. Sure, we may run out on occasion but better to run short than serve bad coffee.
We continue to look for a balance between cost and quality. We want our drinks and treats to be affordable and tasty. Our goal is to work locally FIRST. When that is cost prohibitive, we do use national suppliers. However, our priority is and always will be to support the local community.
