Over ten years ago my foray into coffee began, I remember it like it was yesterday.  I had my Mr. Coffee and tin of Folgers, one day bored and with coffee in hand I used Google to learn about making better coffee.  Found this site and its all down hill, my cupboards began to fill with brewers and roasters, I was hooked.  My coffee slowly got better.

My biggest pitfall was geography, living in a rural, farming community in the Midwest USA I had no access to reputable coffee shops.  Nothing.  Unless I drove 3 hours to Chicago...

For years I labored, with internet and sheer tenacity to grow my love and appreciation for Specialty Coffee.  Turns out I wasn't alone, in Peoria IL, a mere 60 miles from me a handful of passioante coffee folks were coming together to create a new, fresh coffee location.

They succeded.

Thirty-Thirty Coffee Co. was founded, by three young friends in love with quality coffee.

Ty, Dan and Steve wanted to offer Peoria something new in the Specialty Coffee experience, and they have abundantly succeeded.  Roasting in house Dan, prepares many origins and a few blends to offer in shop or via mail order.

I finally discovered these guys, my wife and myself finally arrived to check these guys out.  The staff was very friendly, warm but most of all they absolutely love coffee.  The love making it, they love talking about it and they love sharing it.

My first cup was a pour over of an Ethiopian Sidamo, an origin I have been very familiar with.  The cup was hands down fantastic!  The origin notes where exactly as described by the barista.  Blown away we enjoyed the coffee and even more the young fresh atomostphere in the shop.  An old brick building, warm and inviting.  The coffee absolutely spot on wonderful, something I had never experienced in a coffee shop in my area.

We instantly became fans and love going back, the staff truly are friends and the coffee always exciting and perfectly brewed.  The attention to detail is astonishing.  In fact recently they were named one of the 6 best roasters in America and I fully agree.  Dan's roasts are consistently amazing standing among and over many of the mail order coffee I've purchased (being a coffee geek I've had them all).

Coffee Review rates their coffee consistently above 90.

Freinds hit the mail order, or stop in the shop for some of the best coffee you can find in Illinois!  I'm incredibly proud to call these guys my friends and they would love to meet you.

Thanks for the review. My college roommate teaches at the U of Iowa, so I was interested in seeing where you found  the shop.

Generally, I try to buy from roasters within 400 miles of my home to ensure freshness after a short shipping time so Peoria wouldn't quite make it, normally. Your review and the Coffee Review ranking was an exception, though, until I saw their prices. I simply can't justify those—especially since they sell only 12 ounces. Perhaps the owners visit the CoffeeGeek forum and may want to comment.

My roaster of choice is less than 100 miles from my home which means that my beans arrive the next day. Their typical offering is around $14 for a full 16 Oz pound of coffee beans. They also throw in a free pound for every four you buy.
