Mooresville, NC Local Artisan Coffee Roasters from South Africa
For those of you that know me, you've heard me go on and on about how amazing Urban Grind is. I am completely obsessed with their coffee! Urban Grind is my local go to cafe and roaster. I'm lucky enough to live on the same street, only about a half a mile away. UG is owned by Dirk and Tarryn, a husband and wife team from South Africa. Tarryn and Dirk are extremely warm and inviting, and have an incredible passion for coffee. This combination of kindness and passion permeates into every part of what makes Urban Grind great.
They've assembled a amazing team as well. Tiffany the Assistant Manager is always smiling, putting out good vibes, and genuinely happy to help. Brad is Urban Grind's new roaster, and has been doing an excellent job keeping all the coffees tasting consistent and on point. They have a killer variety of single origin specialty coffees, and specialty blends.
Ethiopia - Yirgacheffe
Colombia - Tolima
Guatemala - San Antonia Huehuetenango
Brazil - Carmo De Minas
Colombia - Caldas (decaf)
Urban Blend - Ethiopia, Guatemala, Colombia
Every single one of these coffees are really great, but there are a couple that stand out as some of the greatest coffees I've ever tasted! Their Ethiopia Yirgacheffee is a masterpiece that will blow your mind as both an espresso, and a pour over. It's bursting with fresh blueberries, with a orange twist on the finish. It is my number one all time favorite single origin Ethiopia Yirgacheffee!
If classic espresso is more your style, you cannot go wrong with their Brazil Carmo De Minas. It has that nostalgic old school Italian espresso vibe nailed. Sweet milk chocolate with roasted hazelnuts for that original northern Italian style espresso flavor.
If you're ever in this area of North Carolina, I strongly recommend swinging by Urban Grind Cafe and grabbing a cup.
