Coffee has been an integral part of my life. From my earliest days I can remember seeing my dad enjoying a cup as soon as he awoke. His daily ritual included sitting in his favorite chair with a blanket over his head and the steaming, piping hot coffee in his hand as he got the early news of the day from the Detroit AM powerhouse, WJR. That image comes back to me every day as I enjoy my first cup of the day.

Time has changed since those days; and we have more options of coffee than just "can roast” that my mom brewed strong to remind my dad of the robust brew he enjoyed in the Army. Now we have light roast, french roast, Anniversary blends, K-Cups and instant packets; along with Fair Trade, single origin beans. There are world wide chain cafes, local artisan roasters, home roasters and of course Maxwell House, to name a few.

Brewtoria is about all that. It is about coffee, plain and simple.

It's a community for coffee lovers to share their favorite brew, roaster, or just how much they love their coffee. Brewtoria is a place to tell the story of how coffee impacts people's lives. Our origins have been humble, as it all started with a simple blog in 2013 about my favorite coffee shops in Michigan, and beyond. I’ve now expanded to include an ecommerce store featuring small batches roasts, and coffee inspired wall art for your cafe or home. Speaking of art….We feel strongly that coffee can bring out your best creative endeavors, whether it’s telling the guys about that monster trout at the local bakery, plowing through that first novel late at night, or etching your latest sketch of the kids skateboarding down at the city park.  Coffee smoothes out those rough edges to make it all just a bit better.

So grab your favorite mug of joe, pull up a chair and stay awhile at your new online coffee house and remember to always, Enjoy Your Coffee!
