1923 Cafe, Hamtramck, Michigan

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of running the annual Paczki Run in beautiful Hamtramck Michigan. Hamtramck is an ethnically diverse community nestled within the city of Detroit and is known for its beautiful churches, churcheclectic restaurants, delicious bakeries, and exotic meat markets. It also boasts of a vibrant music and arts scene with an annual music festival .

After consuming my post race paczki I stopped by 1923 Cafe on Holbrook Ave1923 Cafe 1923 for a latte to go. 1923 Cafe (in operation for close to 11 years), is an ideal coffee hangout spot with vintage oak bookshelves and a relaxing backroom for work, study or conversation. Their coffee is top-notch as well, sourced from nearby Coffee Express Roasting Company from in Plymouth.

If you’re ever in metro Detroit, 1923 Cafe is a great spot to enjoy a fresh roasted cup of coffee in a relaxing atmosphere. Check them out!

If you know of a truly unique and local coffee shop that is making strides with their coffee, the team here at Brewtoria would love to hear about them. We can be contacted at brewtoria@gmail.com or on Twitter @brewtoria. As always, Enjoy your Coffee!

Blooming is the initial “pre-wetting” of the bed of ground coffee in your brewing device. We want to bloom so co2 can release, and then move out of the way. When co2 escapes, you’re left with the desirable solubles that will bring out the flavors and carmelizations of the beans. The goal of the bloom is to get water working with the ground beans, not working with carbon dioxide.
