“what wonderful coffee and people!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

okay I am a coffee addict, but this place is really serious about coffee, and they made me a latte to die for. We talked about the coffee, and it’s obvious these folks care deeply about the quality and freshness. Just taste it. Wow.

“Spectacular coffee”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

The service might be slow, but the product is so very much worth the wait. I had an espresso, my wife a caffe latte. This was amongst the best coffee that I've ever had.

“Best coffee ever!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I drink a LOT of coffee and I enjoy good coffee. I have sampled coffee from the 4 corners of the earth and this place serves the best coffee I have ever had. I ordered cafe americano with hot milk each time on my several visits, my wife prefers a mocha coffee and she was equally impressed. I didn't try the food, but it looked good. I don't see how anyone could complain about the service as you get in line, order your coffee and pick it up when it's ready. These folks grow and process the coffee and serve it direct to you-outstanding!
