“Really good locally roasted coffee.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

I always enjoy supporting local roasters and coffee shops - Carmel Valley Roasting is no exception. Their foglifter is just what I need in the morning!

“Average at Best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

This must be the most expensive coffee drinks ever disbursed. I mean even for Carmel, it's out of this world at $6 a pop. Now the atmosphere is outstanding, the service a little odd, the location great, but now that Starbucks is disbursing a consistent quality drink for over $2 less in the same neighborhood at the foot of the valley, how can they survive? Its a shame, because this area is desperate for a high quality independent coffee house, like the numerous good choices back in Monterey. The baked goods bring it up to a 3 star.

“decent coffee please.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

As you probably know, it's hard to find good coffee in the US. This place promised a good cuppa, and at 6/10 was much better than the flavoured water most Americans drink. The atmosphere was kinda funky and it was popular for those wanting to sit and read.
We also bought a sandwich each and they must have been made some time before as they were not as fresh as they shoukd have been.

“Best Coffee Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Carmel Valley Roasting company's Organic Fog Lifter coffee is delicious. I loved it so much that when I got home, I ordered a five pound bag for my freezer. It's my go-to favorite coffee every day: smooth, not bitter, full bodied, rich.

“The best coffee shop in the Mission Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is agreat little coffee shop located in the Barnyard Shopping Village. The coffee is rich, full flavored, and not bitter. They have a nice selection of muffins, pastries, and sandwiches. The service is excellent. There is a comfortable indoor seating area for the rainy days and access to the Barnyard patios when it was sunny. It was a good place to wait while my wife shopped for dresses and shoes!
