Coffee/Roaster in Miami

Postby Yara Tucek on Tue Nov 03, 2009 3:35 pm

Hi everyone,

I have 4 days layover in Miami before going to Boquete. Its my first time in town and thus would really appreciate some advice on good cafe/roastery. Any suggestions? I will be staying in Coral Gables but wouldnt mind travelling for a nice cup of coffee.

Thanks!

I did a job for a client right in Coral Gables. It is called "Pasion Coffee" (http://pasioncoffee.com/). Their focus is coffee from the Americas and they serve 11 espresso blends, all American coffees. Yes, even a JBM with 80% Genuine JBM in the blend.

If you go there I would appreciate an email from you on your evaluation of the store and their product. Kinda like hoping they are doing it right, but a little concerned that 11 espresso grinders with 11 espresso blends is a tough thing to execute well. But, being that they are in an area like Miami, it could be working well. I know they are selling a lot of coffee.

If you have transportation it's worth visiting the Little Havana section for some Cuban food and to try a Cafe Cubano or two from one of the many storefront / sidewalk front purveyors. It's not espresso per se and it's heavily sweetened but as a cultural tradition it's worth experiencing and trying.

As for multiple espresso blends and grinders.... yikes! I think it's very tough for anyone to pull of more than three or four different espresso offerings at once - much less eleven. Seattle Coffee Works is the only place I've been that tried to do more than two or three (I think they had six or seven when I was there). I think it was a real challenge for them to do justice to that number - I can't imagine doing more. That said - next time I'm in Miami I'll try out Pasion Coffee. Good espresso is something I've never had much luck finding in South Florida.

I've been to Seattle Coffee Works and Sebastian served up an excellent espresso. It was something like a "Pike's Blend" espresso. I asked for the most popular and he recommended it. It became my daily fix, as it is a block from Pike's Market and was a rare exceptional espresso find.

I know, I digressed from Miami, but...
