Village Coffee Roastery

When first setting foot inside Village Coffee Roastery, you might think it looks like a typical contemporary café. There’s art lining the walls, a blue tiled coffee bar, and a pastry display case beside the cash register. But then you’ll notice the giant bean roaster, a Sasa Samiac imported from France, on the south side of the room and realize that this is no ordinary place. The clean, sleek appearance of the otherwise-cozy interior betrays the scientific mindset behind Village Coffee. It’s not clear exactly which scientific techniques are used behind the scenes, but the roasters have, in their words, “combined art with modern science to produce coffee that enhances the natural flavor of the bean.” The result of the small-batch roasting process is a balanced blend that doesn’t need any additional flavorings to be perfectly smooth and sweet. In addition to a stellar cup of Joe, the café serves fresh pastries, breakfast, salads, and sandwiches and has live music on the weekends.
