Best local coffee roaster? (Eastern Conn)
I'm brand new to CT (and NE in general) and I love my coffee. I'd like to find a good local roaster I can buy from instead of getting the pre-packaged stuff at the supermarket. I live in Norwich and work in Willimantic -- any suggestions for good coffee roasters nearby? Or others that deliver/mail? (I used to order from a place in Seattle, but I figure that's a bit extreme now that I don't live on the west coast.)
Thanks!! (And thanks also for posting your food finds here on this board. I'll be making use of them!)
I hear that Daybreak Coffee Roasters in Glastonbury is very good. Personally, I order our coffee from a roaster in Costa Rica. We were on vacation there several years ago and found this little place that was highly recommended by the locals. I have not bought coffee locally since 2007 now. They offer specials all throughout the year.
Can't help you on a local roaster you can visit. However, CT is one business day delivery (via UPS Ground) from both NYC and Boston. In the Boston area (where I live) my favorites are George Howell and Barismo.
Who did you like in Seattle? When I visited there a few years ago, my favorites were Zoka and Victrola.
