Flint Crepe Company / Heyday Coffee

After an exhausting 10 mile race at the Flint, Michigan Crim Festival of Races on August 27, 2016, I slogged into the Flint Crepe Company for a pick-me-up prior to hopping on my shuttle bus back to my car. As always, there is a magnetic pull to a coffee spot that I haven’t visited before and this one was no different.

The eatery is a combo…part breakfast yumfest and coffee tank filler. I especially liked the hip swag offerings of which I purchased some of their local bacon hand soap, crafted from by-products of another “flint-local” business.

Flint town’s troubles are well documented over the past year, however rays of sunshine like the Flint Crepe Company will keep the clouds at bay with their tasty crepes and smooth espresso pulls of Heyday Coffee!

Hit them up on your next visit to mid-Michigan!

 

Zingerman’s Coffee Company, Ann Arbor, MI

Feeling adventurous? Try some different coffee brewing methods at your favorite coffee shop. Yesterday I had my first Aerobie Aeropress at Zingerman’s Coffee Company in Ann Arbor, MI. The Aeropress’s single brewing method provides a the rich coffee flavor, with less bitterness and acidity. My cup was completely absent of any grounds which can commonly occur with the French Press.IMG_20140912_102602

Zingerman’s provides an extremely helpful “Big Brew Board” which visualizes which roast works best with a variety of brewing methods…Pour Over, Chemex, Drip Cone Filter, Immersion Brewer, Press Pot, Siphon Pot, and Aerobie Aeropress, along with other more traditional selections.Zingerman's Roast

I chose the the Road House Joe, straight up black in a mug.  Good times, I highly recommend!!
