Cafe: Rocanini Coffee Roasters
Distance: 57 km
Drink: Black drip coffee
Notes: Again, I had never heard of this roaster. To my surprise, they have 4 locations in the city, all of which are on one of my regular bike routes. I chose the Steveston location because I was wanting a longer, easier ride. I purchased a pound of their Fifth Avenue blend, named after their 5th avenue roasting location which is close to home and also on one of my regular routes. This full-body blend is said to have a hint of dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and syrup. I had it ground for the French Press, and will test it this week.
“Coffeeneuring” has been an interesting experience for me. I have discovered several new local roasters, and learned a lot about how coffee is harvested, roasted, and prepared. I have one more stop, and then I will share more about each of the coffees and the cafes themselves.
