asheville coffee

hello, coffee lovers! well, just when you thought that asheville was all about beer, i’m here to tell you that there is so very much more than beer. in fact, the craft coffee scene in asheville is really on the rise. local cafés + coffeehouses are popping up everywhere. some have been here for a while, some are new to the area. but, they all have a deep love for coffee that is sustainable, fair, + delicious.

that’s right, coffee is the new beer in asheville. you can get regular coffee, pour over coffee, cold brew, freshly roasted beans, and so much more. many of the cafés are also roasters, using their space to roast the beans that they import directly from farmers around the world. that means that when you drink you cup of coffee, you know where the beans come from + who you are supporting. the roaster-farmer relationship is really important to many coffee places in asheville. the idea is to import directly to the roaster from the farm, skipping the big business middle man in between. how freaking cool is that?!

i guarantee that whether you live in asheville or are visiting, if you stop by some of these amazing coffeehouses, you will leave a coffee snob. unable to settle for “regular coffee”, which is mass produced. but, you know what? i think that’s ok. i think that that means that you (and i) are consumers who care deeply about what we put in our bodies and how we try to make a difference, even as we sip on our coffee.
