We recently heard from the folks at Astoria Coffee, who are opening a brick and mortar, real deal coffee shop just off of 30th Avenue on 30th Street. Opening is slated for early summer. We’re all pretty excited about it and are looking forward to checking it out when it’s open. Here’s an update on their plans.

On the topic of drinks

First things first—they plan to serve beer and wine at the shop! They’d like to “carry things that are unique or may be harder to get around here.” So if you have any ideas, shoot them an email at dennis@astoriacoffeeshop.com.

Roaster 411

They’ve also decided to carry multiple coffee roasters and rotate them, instead of sticking strictly to one particular roaster as they have been doing with Brioso Coffee. These roasters will come from all around the country, too, so you’ll get a chance to try the handiwork of folks from the west coast to the east coast and in between. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know different roasting styles, as well.

So what about delivery? 

The Astoria Coffee delivery service is also getting an overhaul, which will reflect the above plans for the shop, which means new roasters will be incorporated, giving you more delicious choices. Here’s more info on the start of this renewed delivery plan:

To kick things off we’re thrilled to work with Case Coffee Roasters based in Ashland, OR. The company was founded by couple Tim and Kati Case, who won the 2013 Good Food Award, a national food competition that prides itself for recognizing food companies with both high quality products and socially and environmentally sustainable business practices. The people at Case Coffee also won second place in Oregon’s Best Coffee competition earlier this year – no small feat given the coffee culture in Oregon. The featured coffee for the week of 3/31 from Case Coffee will be Colombia La Palma, which you’ll get in one of their lovely collector jars.

That said, if you still want Brioso Coffee delivered, they can make that happen at any time. Just email Astoria Coffee with your request.

All in all, very exciting news from Astoria Coffee!
