Starting July 2, Drop Coffee will be taking over all things coffee at Superior Merchandise. Similar to a tap-takeover, SMCo. will be serving Drop Coffee’s entire line by pour over, batch brew, iced coffee, and espresso until they run out.
Some background from Kinfolk’s excellent interview with Drop co-owner Joanna Alm:
What do you take into consideration while roasting your coffee?
We strive to bring out all the good natural flavors of the coffee in the roasting process without adding any roast tones. It’s crucial for us to keep all the natural flavor of the coffee throughout each step of the production chain, from the cherry to the final cup, regardless of the brew method. This is a bit controversial on the coffee market, but it’s the only way to achieve our aim to get most out of the product.
Drop Coffee is has ranked top four in the world the past three years at the World Coffee Roasting Championship. Coffee from Drop is generally difficult procure in America, and even more rare to see their entire line being offered in multiple brew methods, as well as retail bags you can bring home (which are gorgeous boxes).
SMCo. will have the Roaster Takeover as a recurring series, and I’m extremely excited to have these hard to find coffees being offered so close to home. This commitment to raising the bar and pushing the boundaries of what cafes do and offer is one of the reasons why SMCo. is the best coffee shop in our area.
