I happened to visit on their first anniversary. There was a small coffee class happening, a DJ spinning, the standard folk pretending to study and write novels, the neighborhood and their kids. It was a perfect coffee shop. The roasts are mostly on the light and fruity side— they exclusively roast African coffee. I think of the joy they bring others each time I sip their coffee. Grab a bag of Dur Feres from Ethiopa or Turihamwe from Burundi, both under $20. Or splurge on a subscription series for your single-origin-obsessed loved one.
