What is Feature Friday? FRI-YAY!
Feature Friday has always been a part of our vision here at MCCo! We love the craft process involved with coffee and have discovered so many life changing cups of coffee through simply trying it everywhere we go. We have found over the years there are so many fantastic roasters who take great pride in sourcing single origin beans sustainably and crafting magical roasts with them. Now we are making it easy for you to access and try new coffees monthly! We will offer a featured roasters coffee on the last Friday of each month!

APRIL 30TH OUR FIRST FEATURED ROASTER
I first heard of Oak & Bond through the some friendly chatter while bartending. Because I love my bourbon it was brought to my attention that Oak & Bond has a specialty in barrel aged roasting. Some of their barrel aged coffee include bourbon, rye, scotch and cabernet. This week being the week of the Kentucky Derby I thought it appropriate to feature a roaster that also loves bourbon.
We will feature their Session blend (Guatemala and Ethiopia) on drip throughout the week while supplies last as well as pour over offerings of their very popular Columbia Buesaco and their Costa Rica Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged coffee. In addition to offering their stunning beans we will be selling them in our retail section!
And if you can't go without your MCCo House Blend, no worries, that will be on too.
Stop by and see what they have to offer, try something new and support the industry. Coffee truly is a universal cycle!

We first discovered Mountain Dweller through a club called Bean Culture and we discovered Bean Culture through Hop Culture. See a theme here? We were blown away by their single origin Ethiopian coffee called Natural Forces. I knew right then and there that they would be a roaster that we shared with our community. Stop by the weekend of May and taste the amazing! We are offering Electric Fox (Columbia) on drip and Canyon Echos (Guatemala) as a pour over but we won't stop you from trying them both as a pour over. We also have retail bags avaibale so after you wow over your coffee you can take it home. Welcome.
Please feel free to click the link below and check out their website to see what they are all about. They are great people doing great things. Cheers!
That is correct, June's featured roaster is was brewery! Hoof Hearted out of Columbus, OH captured our hearts first with their outstanding craft beers. We also discovered that the roasted beans when we were delivered a bag of Ethiopian though a subscription to bean culture. We were not surprised to find that they craft in roaster was matched with their craft and love for brewing. This weekend and throughout the week we are featuring two roast from Hoof Hearted. We will be running the Ethiopia Yirgacheffe on drip also available for pour over if you ask your lovely barista and the Brazil Mantquiera Des Minas exclusivley on pour over. We will offer retail bags of each of the blends for those of you who want to take some home to enjoy all day every day until it's gone. If you are beer lovers like us and have not yet tried their beer and can't make it to Columbus any time soon, stop by our big brother Bridgetown Taphouse and get some. We have can available and this weekend we will be tapping $60 Nachos (delectable IPA).
Beaver Falls Coffee and Tea is a staple in Beaver Falls, Pa especially for college students attending Geneva College. I first learned of BFCAT while attending Geneva College in 2007 and was delighted to have a place so close to study, meet friends and get very much needed Canaan Conquests (house specialty latte). When I first met owners Bethany and Russ Warren I learned quickly that they were more than just small business owners. They are a family inviting you into their home and offering a safe environment, fellowship, and a home away from home vibe. Bethany and Russ care very deeply about their community locally and globally. Their tagline is, "We love coffee, the people who produce it, and the people who drink it,".
Our two featured roasts from them for the week of 7/30-8/6 will be from Peru and Rwanda. The Peruvian roast will be offered as a pour over. With a blueberry aroma this is a deep and smooth roast. The Rwandan roast will be offered on drip throughout the week. From this roast you can expect a full body, rich with jammy orchard fruit. We will be offering both roast in whole bean retail bags as well! Either way, please stop by and try this local coffee, it's delightful. They are only 20 minutes away from us and will be a great place for you to visit some day if you've never been.
