Desert Oasis

and a more recent article that's a little different read:
16yr roaster


When we go to MI we stay with fam in Rochester. So hit this spot up by luck just seeing it downtown, I don't think they have a website? Very cool place and the coffee is awesome, I bought some back to show the Starbucks lovers in the house what good coffee is (they keep like a 2lb bag of Starbucks in the fridge from Costco or whatever size that is). Only used for drip, but they loved this coffee. Still only buy *bucks though since it's convenient for them and they don't want to stop at some place just to get coffee, oh well, I tried lol. Can't remember what I bought, was some exotic sounding place lol.

But I just saw this article as my fiance is up there right now and stopped by. So the parents opened the place a few years ago, and their son has learned the ropes and now at 16yrs old is the roaster and knows how to source greens and which depending on season etc, and even comes up with the drink concoctions. Just thought that was cool, I didn't even drink coffee when I was 16, let alone source greens and roast haha.

here's their facebook you can check out: FB
