This past weekend, Libbie Dawn and I took a little trip to a nearby Forest Service cabin up in Lolo National Forest for her birthday. We had seen pictures floating around the internet of the place but we honestly had no real idea of what to expect. The website listed all kinds of amenities and activities but we had no real way of knowing exactly what this place had to offer. Well, we were not disappointed in the slightest. It was amazing in every way we were hoping and blew us both away.
Ever since moving to Missoula it has been a journey to find all the rad places this town has to offer and let me tell you this; Black Coffee Roasting is a real gem. Not only do they really, and I mean truly, care about what they are producing but they are also some of the nicest people you could encounter. When I first met Matt and Jim they told me they were “decidedly unpretentious” about coffee, and I do not think I could have smiled more when they said it. Coffee is one of those rare things that is totally subjective yet almost universally under appreciated; in a world where a bean is the second most traded commodity and 25 million people in 50 countries depend on its harvest, there is something to be said about finding those people who care about how that bean is roasted. To me Black Coffee Roasting Co. is the every mans coffee shop, whether you just want a damn fine cup of coffee or want to nerd out about origin and brewing techniques the dudes over at black got you covered. Seriously, if you want to try some new beans give them a shot, I promise you wont be disappointed.
