Check Out Exo Roast Co.

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2012 at 1:00 PM

People who know a lot more about coffee than I do say the newish Exo Roast Co. has the best espresso in town. That's no small distinction, either, being that we have a number of excellent coffee roasters across the city.

The roaster and coffee shop, located at 403 N. Sixth Ave., imports green coffee from around the world and roasts it in small batches. Many people have called this business model the "third-wave" of American coffee. I think Folgers was the first wave and Starbucks was the second.

In any event, local coffee nuts are raving about what Exo Roast Co. is cranking out. It's located in the same historic building that will soon house Tap + Bottle, too, so you'll soon be able to conveniently shop for liquor and caffeine while supporting local merchants.
