A central focus of the Carriage House Café is on fine coffees and teas.
For coffee drinkers, we proudly serve expertly brewed coffee from our famous award-winning local roaster "Gimme! Coffee," never allowing the beans to exceed their ideal shelf-life of 5-7 days.
Our espresso shots are a triple ristretto, ground to order, never allowing leftover grinds to be used for the next shot. Each latte, cappuccino, and macchiato poured by our baristas is topped with beautiful art, our indication to you that the utmost care has been taken in every step of the preparation. Our powdered cocoa and delicious syrups are all made in-house.
Each pot of our brewed coffee is freshly ground and brewed with softened and filtered drinking water — held for a maximum of 30 minutes — so you can always count on experiencing the freshest flavor.
Every one of our baristas is highly trained, to ensure that your drink will be masterfully prepared by someone who sincerely aspires to serve you the best coffee you've ever had.
Finally, all our equipment is meticulously cleaned and re-seasoned at least once a day, in order to achieve the most excellent flavor.
maybe it was just a function of the kind of shot they pull? i dunno. i've had espressos at gimme locations plenty of times and def was not as overextracted as this one.
