“The owner, Theo, who you will likely see when visiting the shop, was the first coffee roaster in town. He is a coffee-roasting expert and can guide you in your coffee selection. Small shop, there are a few small tables and counter, no internet. Favorite spot for local regulars to gather for a game of cards. A great spot to pick up a bag to grind and brew at home! ”
