This place is incredible they toast the coffee by ourselves and they know how to use an espresso machine. Right size, right temperature , foam and the taste... More

Being from Melbourne (and therefore coffee snobs) we were a bit cynical of the reviews raving about the coffee in this place that, to be honest, is kinda in the middle of nowhere. But, we were on our way to Yosemite and needed our fix. Wow! They roast their own coffee and clearly know what they're doing. The standard coffees... More

Thank you for the warm greeting when we stopped in for coffee on our way home from Yosemite. The coffee was bold in flavor with no bitterness!!! Awesome coffee and the beans we bought are by far the best we have had in a very long time (since Hawaii trip). Thank you very much for the conversation and friendly atmosphere.... More
