Coffee Ride........In Pursuit of Great Roasted Coffee

Took a ride on a cold and blustery Saturday morning in pursuit of some Milan Coffee Works, Hi-Fi dark roast coffee.

We chose two fluffy chairs close to the counter with unique end tables made from blocks of cut rough lumber. Curious about the brewing method, I slipped up to the counter where the barista was beginning my pour.  Not recognizing the brewing device, I asked inquisitively and she introduced me to the Bee House cone dripper.
