Steamers & Breaking Beans Coffee, Lambertville, Michigan

Last Saturday, during a break at my son’s wrestling tournament, I ventured down the road to Steamers Coffee, In Lambertville, MI.

Lambertville, sits right on the Ohio border and is essentially a part of suburban Toledo Ohio. It’s one of those unique border towns where you’re not really sure what state you’re in as residents of both states meander about their lives crossing the border without thinking or realizing they’ve entered a different state.

I walked in, close to their 2:00 pm closing time, and the staff was more than welcoming; allowing me to take some photos and “talk coffee” with them as I sipped on my dark roast coffee. The shop had a well designed decor with beautiful coffee art and comfortable tables and chairs throughout.

When I asked about their coffee, the team was proud to tell me about Breaking Beans Coffee in nearby Monroe Michigan. Breaking Beans has a great story behind them.

Their mission is to train and employ adults with disabilities in all aspects of the coffee business. The manager at Steamers shared the story of Breaking Beans and I could see and hear her passion for what they do. I told them I would be happy to feature them on my blog and help to spread the word. I listened intently and then perused a few of their coffee roasts for sale at Steamers. They had an extensive selection of light, medium, dark and flavored roast coffees.

What are Those Bubbles In My Pourover?

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.
