Four Barrel Coffee Roasters

I hadn't been to Four Barrel coffee roasters in a few years.  In fact, I hadn't been to the Bay Area in over a year and in February of 2018 I got two go twice.  Which meant a stop in at the old Four Barrel stoping grounds.  We popped in an hour before closing and BOY were they inhospitable.  That didn't bother me though.  I walked away with a cappuccino and two bags of beans to enjoy at home.  Plus they'd changed their packaging which is beautiful on the shelf and showcases different artists on different bags.

I didn't realize that their bags were biodegradable too.  You can pop them in your own personal compost pile.  (If you follow the instructions on the bottom of the bag).  Nice touch!

Slate Coffee Roasters

I was up in Seattle last year attending a good friend's wedding and I had a day where no one was really available to hang out, so I did some Seattle exploring.  I happened upon the small store front that Slate operates out of.  Had a great cappuccino and picked up a small bag of their beans.  Expensive for the amount offered, but still a good bean if you're in the area.
