“Amazing coffee house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful and modern, this place is a breath of fresh air in Mammoth. Because I'm vegan, I normally order soy lattes and they don't carry soy but do carry almond milk. I gave it a try and wow....the flavor, the heart shape in the foam and the richness was unbelievable!!! This place is a must.

“Great cup of brew”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Great coffee, little slow because each cup is hand crafted, so it is nice to slow down and enjoy it..

“Great Coffee, Best in Mammoth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

This spot has the best coffee in Mammoth that I tried. It is fresh ground pour over coffee made upon order. There is no burnt taste. People are generally use to the burnt and over-brewed coffee rather than the true flavour.

The atmosphere is minimalistic, but that is fine with me. Great wood furnishings. Staff was friendly and nice. Do not have much food offerings, but what I had was really good. Free wifi.

It would be nice to have a larger size for coffee, but that can be the only complaint.

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for morning coffee. Interesting place, a little bit stark and open but the coffee was very good.

“A bit Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Now don't get me wrong, I had a perfectly fine cup of coffee, but the best? No.
Atmosphere a bit sterile for my taste, but I do like supporting small shops.
