This was an impromptu stop on a 90-degree day, and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. I stopped in with a friend to kill some time and grab a quick lunch; I don’t know if they have air conditioning or not, but it was relatively warm and a huge, industrial size fan was running. Let me tell you this: I would stop in even if the floor was made out of coals on a 110 degree day.
Obviously, I’m going to tell you that their coffee is great. It’s rich; it’s awesome; it’s rejuvenating. Their iced coffee is bomb, and their smoothies are so thick and well-balanced I could eat one for breakfast every day. I opted for their homemade chicken salad on wheat with all the toppings (no tomato..sorry, not my thang) and wow, was it delicious! Creamy, crunchy, savory, warm, fresh…need I continue?
The guys working seemed to be enjoying themselves and helping to create a quirky, laid-back environment. All of their coffee is organic and fair-trade; they also roast green coffee beans! Where the heck else can you get a green coffee bean roast from El Salvador? Probably El Salvador. They create relationships with bean harvesters all over the world to ensure they are roasting the highest quality beans for some high-quality customers. Their anchor cafe is on the southeast corner of 31st and Morgan, and there are three other locations throughout the city.
Best news- you can buy coffee beans from them, too. So if you’re desperate for one of their roasts, but are too lazy to put on pants, there is hope. http://bridgeportcoffee.net/
