Our goal here at Round Mountain Coffee is to bring a great cup of coffee anywhere. Whether that's at home, in the office, in your dorm, or even on a camping trip, we believe great coffee should be accessible to anyone, anywhere. Be sure to keep an eye out for any upcoming events as we will be offering free community classes on how to make a simple yet bold cup of coffee right in your very own home. Classes to look out for? Cupping (experience multiple brews we roast and learn how to critique properties of coffee), Steaming Milk 101 (learn how to properly steam milk to use in lattes), and Espresso Shot Extraction (learn the science behind taking a shot from beans to liquid perfection used in nearly all of our drinks).
Check out our Events page to find our next upcoming class.
Our Favorite Coffee Brewing Methods
"The Chemex Coffeemaker is a work of art itself. This beautifully designed curved glass container was invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm. Made simply from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie, it brews coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. With the Chemex method, you can make coffee as strong as you like without bitterness. Perfect for iced coffee and coffee flavoring for gourmet recipes. Because of its purity, Chemex brewed coffee can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for reheating...without losing its flavor!"
V-60 Pour Over
"Since its introduction, the Japanese-made Hario v60 dripper has taken a strong foothold in specialty coffeehouses and cafes in the US and around the globe. Hario, which translates to "the kind of glass", is a heat-resistant glassware company which was founded in 1921. The v60 pour-over method requires attention to detail in order to produce a high quality cup of coffee."
Once you've mastered the art, the v60 will reward you with a clean tasting cup with a flavorful finish.
"AeroPress coffee tastes better because the ground coffee is totally immersed in the hot water, resulting in fast and extensive extraction of the flavor compounds. The AeroPress method shortens brew time to 20-40 seconds, which avoids the unpleasant bitterness created by slower methods."
The AeroPress is one of our favorite brew methods in house, and we know you'll love it too.
"During the cold brew process, time replaces heat. A roasted coffee bean contains many compounds that are extracted during the brewing process. Some of those compounds, including certain oils and fatty acids, are soluble only at a high temperature. During the cold brew process, coffee beans are never exposed to high temperature. The cold brew process creates a perfectly balanced and distinctively smooth cup of coffee."
"Cold brew coffee infused with nitrogen gas is released through a pressurized valve with tiny holes. As high pressure forces the cold brew past a disc, it creates a creamy, stout-like effect. Nitro cold brew comes out a smooth and clean cold coffee every time."
If you're a fan of black coffee, you'll love our nitro cold brew on tap. Come in a give it a try!
