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.

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.

Coffee Extraction, The Inside Scoop

There’s a science behind how a cup of coffee is made, and it’s called coffee extraction. To put it simply, coffee extraction takes the flavor out of ground beans and fuses it with water. When done well, you get something great. When the extraction doesn’t go well, well… you get a bit of a mess.
