Hi you coffee and tea fans! I know I’ve been lax in my blogging duties… to be honest it’s been a little intimidating. I decided to kick off my first blog with a place I really like, even if it’s a coffee place mostly.
Dunn Bros Coffee is a nice place to chill, fortunately for me it’s also a great place to work. Since I work for myself, I’m always on the look out for a free wi-fi connection, quite music, and a good cup of tea to settle myself into an afternoon’s work. Dunn Bros Coffee has that and more in their two locations (8975 Metcalf & 535 E Red Bridge Rd). I prefer the Metcalf location with more room and tray tables for the comfy chairs, but the Red Bridge location is doing quite a business as well.
Dunn Bros Coffee also roasts their own coffee on site in small batches every day. This affords you fantastic quality and freshness, whether you are having a cup in the store or buying beans to take home to your own Bistro. Being a “Tea Chick” myself, I did not partake in the roasted goodness, but got a favorable report from the friend that I met there. The tea while not being loose leaf is made by Mighty Leaf and tastes pretty good. You might have to take the quality into your own hands however, since Dunn Bros like most coffee shops does not understand what it takes to brew a truly great cup of tea. I’ve included some pointers below to help you out.
