The Artisanal Pour-Over

I scraped ice off of my car this morning and finally accepted that fall is here. When the weather starts to turn and fall boots, textured tights, and cozy sweaters take over, I am also drawn to the beauty that is fall in Concord. I love to enjoy the little, pure comforts of life; whether it is the turning of the leaves, rows of pumpkins lined up, the sweet crunch of an apple right off of the tree, or the smell of a crackling fire. This desire was a huge motivator behind our choice to offer artisanal pour-over coffee. We procure the beans from CQ coffee roasters out of Bedford, NH where they use Direct Trade practices. This means that they have negotiated a price with the farmer at the “farm gate,” thereby bypassing import and export fees, ensuring that they pay above Fair Trade minimums. It isn’t a coincidence that these farmers provide some of the most high-quality beans in the world. Claudia Barrett, owner and self-proclaimed “coffee-Jedi” is a licensed Q-grader; of which there are roughly 300 in the United States. All of her coffees submitted to the prestigious Coffee Review have scored above 90+ points. She is passionate and vigilant about the quality of her product, and it shows. Each roast has a story and celebrates the flavor of the earth from where it came. This sense of terroir comes through in each cup. Today, we are offering an Ethiopian Dry Process coffee which has notes of Pineapple and Berries with a Butter finish, as well as a Decaf option that has notes of Dried Stone Fruit and Oatmeal Cookie. Here’s to savoring the moment.

Eat Sunshine

This phrase comes from 7th grade science class when we all learned about photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is the first energy byproduct of the sun. So, when you sip a green juice or smoothie, you are consuming its liquid energy in the purest form possible. Your cells thank you!
