Coffee Houses, Cafes & Online Coffee Stores

by Angela on October 20, 2009

Coffee houses have become ever more popular in the last decade. The coffee shop is one of those much loved places that has its own inviting and heart warming appeal to so many of us.

There are coffee houses practically on every street corner offering the pure and passionate taste of freshly ground coffee that simply cannot be beat.

Just passing a coffee shop where the air is filled with the unmistakable aroma of freshly roasted and brewed coffees from around the globe is enough to transport us to another world.

Coffee houses allow you to try out all types of coffee with different levels of roasting that bring out distinct qualities in the coffee. Coffee shops also supply a wide range of coffee products, from gourmet coffee beans to freshly ground coffee, flavored coffees and Specialty Coffees.

In House Small Batch Roasting

Many coffee shops will roast your coffee to order and give it to you in a heat sealed bag that will keep it fresh for some time.

Small batch roasting of green coffee beans is a traditional roasting method utilized by most coffee houses that do in-house roasting. Small batch roasting ensures that the integrity of the true coffee flavor and aroma are preserved all the way from the green bean to the cup.

For the best and ultimate enjoyment that coffee connoisseurs live for, coffee is best consumed just after being freshly roasted, ground and brewed.

Local Coffee Shops & Wholesale Coffee

Many local coffee houses that do in-house small batch roasting have also discovered a new revenue stream by supplying small batched roasted coffee to local wholesale buyers and other local retail outlets, including restaurants and neighboring cafes.

This benefits the local coffee house while supporting the community and allowing local cafes and restaurants access to gourmet specialty roasted coffees at affordable prices.

Gifted Coffee Houses

Gourmet coffee beans make great gift items and many coffee shops will carry uniquely packaged gourmet coffees as well as Coffee Sampler Baskets.

Gourmet Arabica coffees are the most popular gift items including such unique are rare specialty coffees as Jamaican Blue Mountain and Hawaiian Kona.

Employees at coffee houses are usually well trained and can assist you with understanding the different coffee types in the coffee baskets and how the coffees may differ.

Organic & Fair Trade Coffee Shops

Many of today’s local coffee shops and cafes have become more socially and environmentally conscious and have chosen to roast and serve Organic Gourmet Coffees and Fair Trade Gourmet Coffees or both.

These organic/fair trade coffee houses are selling more than just coffee products. They also sell and promote a life-style choice; a healthier, more sustainable coffee industry supported by a more responsible community of coffee consumers.

Online Coffee Stores

More and more, coffee houses are offering a wider range of Gourmet Coffee Beans either in house or through their online coffee stores similar to That’s Coffee.

The online coffee shop is extremely convenient and can offer a diverse range of exceptional coffee products from around the world. The online coffee buying experience is consumer driven and a veritable haven for the coffee connoisseur. Great coffee is dependent on many things and choosing the correct gourmet coffee beans or blends are important to the end result…a great tasting cup of coffee.

The convenience of ordering online is appreciated by many coffee lovers as it gives them background information on each coffee, allowing the buyer to make an educated purchase.
