We Love Coffee
We love coffee. Good coffee. DAMN FINE coffee. Our ongoing mission is to bring you the best coffee the country has to offer. In addition to fine espresso and drip from our pals and anchor roaster at Halfwit - we'll be featuring different roasters from around the country every month for our manual brews and retail beans.
But coffee isn't the only thing we love. Of course there's Tea - and we've got some of the best available - courtesy of our pals at SpiritTea. We're also a fan of yummy treats - and we've got that covered. We get daily deliveries from Pleasant House Bakery as well as vegan donuts from Bad Day Donuts. The kids love it.
We also feel it's important to note that we use organic ingredients whenever possible as well as offer a number of dairy-free options.
Oh and by the way - we really love dogs. So don't worry about bringing your four-legged friends in while you're grabbing your beverage. We've got treats for them too.
Our Featured Roaster
Every month we're going to feature unique roasters from around the country. We feel it's important to showcase products that Chicago coffee lovers would otherwise not be able to enjoy.
From their site:
We admit to being fiercely focused on the art and science behind an excellent cup of coffee. That obsessive tendency led us to renovate an old warehouse on San Antonio’s Southside to create a premium coffee roasting facility, Merit Coffee Roasting Co. It’s about control — how we source the beans, the temperature and duration of the roasting and the subsequent quality of the coffee in your cup.
We personally source many of the batches of beans we roast, literally traveling to the growers to sample their coffee, negotiate a fair price and arrange shipment to San Antonio. Many of our specialty beans come from a single farm or even from a specific area on the farm (micro-terroir), so they are limited in quantity and superior in quality. We work to establish strong, long-term relationships based on good coffee and fair prices.
Once the beans reach us, we roast test batches, cup, taste, adjust, test some more and finally establish the perfect roast for the beans. We package the whole beans fresh from the roaster — rich, aromatic, at the peak of perfection.
