Chazzano Coffee Roasters, Ferndale Michigan

I recently met a friend for coffee and he suggested we try Chazzano Coffee Roasters on Nine Mile Road in Ferndale, Michigan. As I opened my door to head into the shop, I was met by a heavenly emanation of roasted coffee beans. I’ve become rather accustomed to this odor as my wife and I have been running a roasting R&D lab out of our kitchen and garage for several years now, so my pace quickened in anticipation of my forthcoming coffee encounter.

Walking into the busy cafe, I noticed several patrons who carried their Sunday morning caffeination into the early afternoon. The scenery was a coffee lover’s dream. Shelves of industrial French Presses in escalating sizes, ceramic pour overs, and of course….hissing espresso machines attended by expert baristas. After having a seat at a stainless steel high top with waffled corrugated steel walls, I was approached by a kind and gentle barista who after an exchange of pleasantries, and admiration of his urban chambray cap, walked me through the various roast options and brew methods common to the operation. I settled on a French Press of their Ethiopia Mokasida, single origin and was so charmed and gratified that I invested in a half-pound of their Full City to go.

If you’re looking for an ideal landing place for a future confab over brewed coffee, espresso, or anything in between check out Chazzano Coffee Roasters on Nine Mile Road in Ferndale.

I love the mom and pop coffee shops! Especially the ones who offer made-from-scratch menu options, prepared and served by enthusiastic friendly people. There is no better way to enjoy a fine latte or espresso drink.

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.
