They'll also find freshly roasted beans.

"Roasting gives you that extra quality to it. You know if you get it right out of the roaster, it makes a huge difference. It's so much brighter, so much crisper, so complex. It makes it that much better," explains owner Kyle Burge.

Roasting coffee beans from countries such as Guatemala, Ethiopia, and Bolivia is a time consuming process. Each particular type of bean requires a different roasting time and temperature. Since all the roasting takes place at the coffee shop, customers can watch the process.
