Topic: Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop (4 msgs / 72 lines)
1) From: steve_w
The Minneapolis based Dunn Bros. coffee shop chain has finally expanded
out into my neck of the 'burbs and I decided to check it out last night.
Quite a different setup from the other shops.  They really market their
"fresh roasted daily" coffee bona fides.  The first thing you see when you
walk through the door is a line-up of burlap bags filled with green beans,
and behind that is their roaster.  Only after you get past that do you come
to the sales counter.  They don't label the beans with full plantation of
origin/region of origin info but I didn't scrutinize the bags too much so it
might've been there if I've looked closely.  They also have a couple of
Internet cafe stations and advertised 802.11b access for walk-in laptops.

You might ask them which brokers supply their beans.  Also hope those bags
were on pallets and not directly on a concrete floor-u get mold in just a
couple of days when bagged green beans sit on concrete.  A local roaster has
yet to figure that out-course the way he roasts/chars and what he
roasts/chars he could store his beans in the rain and it would not matter.

Fresh roasted Grade II beans are better than two month old canned and ground
Grade II beans.  ;)
