Throw a rock hit a coffee shop

In a world infatuated with coffee, the Pacific NW where I live is at the top of the list. Throw a rock hit a coffee shop:) In other words, we have access to plenty of other coffee vendors. Located in gorgeous Coeur d’ Alene ID, Lake City Coffee stands out as a purveyor of truly delicious coffee beans.

Their secret? Well, for one thing how long they roast their beans. (Ask Russell he may just let you in on it.) Because I was buying green beans (they store much longer) & as a somewhat skeptical customer, I was really impressed with the flavor but also Russell and Alisha’s willingness to share how they source & tediously test their beans with exacting standards.

Their knowledge of this art is impressive & won over this customer. Their “passion” for great coffee is obvious…rumor has it they even spent their honeymoon checking out coffee tree orchards………… day😉 Please don’t tell them i let that slip? But try their beans, you won’t be disappointed.

Oh, one more thing. If you have never tried the X factor of roasting your own small batch of green beans provided by Lake City Coffee. Some chilly Sunday morning take out your old cast iron skillet and try it. It’s fun, easy, fast, and like bread fresh from the oven compared to day old bread, just plain better. I would add more but I have to go join my family before they finish off the whole pot without me.
