What's the first thing you see when you walk into the coffee shop? Is it the black and white tile making up the bar, the beautiful new plants and herbs, the stainless steel and wood accents of the Synesso machine? Or is it one of the smiling faces of our baristas? Each and every one of our baristas are highly trained in specialty coffee, and each one of them would love to spend hours discussing the merits of the espresso to milk ratio in a cortado. Get to know our head barista, Dan Shoup, on our blog. http://ow.ly/OQn6W

Cascara is an herbal tea made from the dried cherries of the coffee plant, giving it a sweet, cherry-like flavor. This unique offering was sourced by our own Director of Coffee on his most recent origin trip to Costa Rica. Learn more about our cascara on our blog, or stop into the coffee shop to try it now. http://ow.ly/Rco1R

The journey to Director of Coffee wasn't the most expected one. With a background in finance and theatre, Sam had always been looking to find a career that combined the best of the creative and the analytical worlds. A passion for coffee and the relationships it fosters showed him that this industry could be exactly what he had always been looking for. But what exactly does it mean to be the Director of Coffee and Green Coffee Buyer at Ferris? http://ow.ly/RclPd

The Battle of the Geishas is on! The Panama Esmeralda Geisha offers a floral flavor with nice aromatics for a light, sweet cup, while the Ethiopia Bebeka Estate Geisha offers a jasmine and strawberry jam flavor with hints of fruit punch and vanilla. Try them both in the coffee shop and let us know which one you think wins this battle.

"What is the strongest coffee that you offer?" It's probably one of the most frequently asked questions we get - but in truth, there isn't a simple answer. Strong coffee can be described as an intense flavor, a dark roast, or even just a coffee with a high caffeine content. So how do we answer the question? We explain on our blog. http://ow.ly/R6Ior

To us, sustainability has always been doing the right thing in the right ways, from recycling our paper, plastic, and cardboard company wide, to working with a local farm to transform food waste into livestock feed. This dedication to sustainability launched Project Compost as we continue to look for more ways to decrease our environmental footprint. Learn more about the initiative on our blog. http://ow.ly/Qzfnq

We're honored to be the official coffee sponsor of Restaurant Week GR for the third year in a row! Sourced by our Director of Coffee, Sam, on his most recent trip to Guatemala, this year's Restaurant Week coffee offers notes of hazelnut and chocolate, with a mild red apple-like acidity. You can pick up a cup of Guatemala San Miguel in the coffee shop, or look for it while dining at participating Restaurant Week locations.
