The Roasterie: Local Coffeetopia

I just discovered another reason to love Kansas City—The Roasterie. Air roasted coffee heaven done fresh right here. We can take a factory tour and I’m told that the smell of roasting coffee wafts through the city in the winter.

Yesterday we bought a bag of their Full Vengeance Dark Blend from the local grocery. Aromatic and dark, this coffee became a staple after three sips. I predict Vengeance will remain a favorite of mine, but I plan to try the rest of their dark roasts asap.

I usually only have two cups in the morning and an occasional afternoon boost. This was such a good coffee it became a four cup morning. Will be visiting the factory soon.
