Description: Proudly supporting your coffee habit since 1999. We buy some of the finest green coffee beans available and roast them off-site on an American-made Diedrich roaster. As roasters, we deeply respect farmers' dedication to excellence and sustainability, and we strive to honor their hard work by carefully developing each harvest's optimal flavors. As baristas, we are invested in brewing coffee that showcases nature's genius and in sharing it meticulously and enthusiastically with you. As community members, we strive to forge rich connections and to provide a third place that fosters creative interaction and supports the vitality of this beautiful place. We're located in the quaint downtown historic district of Black Mountain and offer delectable homemade pastries (GF options), fresh fruit smoothies, and coffee frappes in addition to all of the traditional espresso-based beverages. Free Wi-Fi, parking and outdoor seating.

“A Very Nice Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

We were heading onto the Blue Ridge Parkway and (it being a Sunday) were having issues finding a place open for breakfast. Dripolator to the rescue! The coffee and pastries were excellent as were the number of choices of each. The atmosphere was very nice and the directions we received were way better than the ones we had. I only wish that the adjacent museum and art gallery had been open. Give it a try!

“A great stop for a good cup”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Went there on a recent vacation. Three people in the party had specialty lattes which they loved. I had a tea latte that was OK, but next time will just have a hot tea. You can tell that the locals love it and I can see why. Stop on buy if you're in the area.

Lovely coffee house with great coffee. Stopped in on our way out of town and it powered us through our long drive home. Nice pastries and sweets as well.
