Roaster Roundup: Bluebeard Coffee Roasters

Honestly, sometimes I’m flabbergasted by how many coffee roasters there are in the Northwest. I included 56 roasters in Left Coast Roast, but it could easily have been 112, or 168. Today, a newbie made it onto my radar via a blog post over at A Table in the Corner of the Cafe: Bluebeard Coffee Roasters. They’ve been up and running since spring 2011, after I had done all the research and most of the writing for the book. It sounds like a beacon of good-coffee light in the wilds of Tacoma:

With three different siphon pots, all-glass and wood-handled chemexes, an aeropress, porcelain V60s with your choice of regular paper filters or a Coava Able cone [ed.], a clever coffee dripper, french presses and press pots, and I’m pretty sure I saw a woodneck around here at one point in time.

The cafe was chosen as Best Cup of Coffee, Best Coffeehouse, and Best Place to Meet Someone by the readership of one of Tacoma’s  alt-weeklies, The Weekly Volcano—not too shabby for a year-old operation. I’ll be in Tacoma in October or November for a book event, and I’m looking forward to stopping by.
