Corpus Christi is a slight detour from the road to Brownsville, but since I might not be back in this area for a long time, I decided to go ahead and take the time to check out Coffee Waves.

According to the manager/owner, this part of Texas has not really had an artisanal coffee culture, but this place is trying to bring it to town. They don't yet offer a pour over, but they do use a French press and have single origin offers.

I had a medium-roasted Colombia, from Nordaggio's in Tulsa, and it was decent enough that I'd like to come back in a few years, once they add a pour over.
