What do we mean by “Really Good Coffee”?
These days, you can find a cup of coffee almost anywhere. From the gas station on the way to work to the ubiquitous Starbucks (really, there’s got to be one on your way to anywhere), there are lots of places hawking brown cups of caffeine. We sell coffee, too, but we’re not exaggerating when we say that we have Really Good Coffee. Not a day goes by without a new customer ordering a cup of coffee or espresso drink, thinking they’re getting the standard quo. Without fail, after the first sip, they look up, startled, and say, “Wow. This is Really Good Coffee.” As though they’re surprised that coffee doesn’t HAVE to taste like burning, like water, or, worst-of all taste like nothing BUT burnt water. We love this moment. We’re really stoked about our coffee at The Market, and we want to get each and every one of our customers equally excited.
So what makes our coffee Really Good? Our coffee comes from Stumptown Coffee Roasters, a small-batch coffee roastery in Portland, Oregon that specializes in single-origin, direct trade coffees from around the globe. Their care for the craft of coffee is astounding. Just reading the tasting notes on each type of coffee should be your first hint. It reads like the Oxford Guide to Wine!
Fortunately, the other thing that makes our coffee Really Good is our amazing team of baristas. Our baristas have gone through hours of extensive training with the staff at Stumptown to make sure that we’re pulling the perfect shots of espresso, and whipping up the perfect silky, creamy foam for your latte.
Way to go Miriam. You rock.
