The Latte Lowdown–A New Town, A Recurring Coffee Shop
Best Coffee Beans has just relocated to Asheville, NC. Asheville is a city of connection and good things … and that includes great places to connect with people and good coffee. We are full of hope over our coffee future. What will we experience here? How will our coffee knowledge grow? Where will our coffee palates mature—in other words, what will be our new favorite coffee shop?
Yep. That’s right. We are in a town where every Friday night the natives come out and commune through drum beats that last all night long. We are in a town of diversity and life … a town that puts authenticity above commercial success. No longer are we in a stagnant town, and yet, where do we get our coffee? Starbucks. We can’t help it. It’s right there–5 seconds away from our headquarters. And it’s better here. In our old town, Starbucks burnt the coffee and played uninspired music on repeat. Not in Asheville. This city has its own energy and it seeps into the soul of every business … every cup of coffee.
Don’t get us wrong. We are going to all the local coffee shops. We will dine on the fruits of this remarkable town. We will become one with this place, where every thing and every person is a thread in the fabric of this piece of land in Western North Carolina. Best Coffee Beans will experience a new coffee in a new coffee-house here in Asheville every Sunday. We will write about it. And you will visit this great town to experience all that we are about to.
But Why Starbucks? Why!
Three words: Pumpkin Spice Latte. (Plus Starbucks is so close to us that we can almost stick our hand out the window and find a coffee beverage in our palms when we pull our arms back in.)
Go get one. Pumpkin Spice Latte is more than a taste, it’s a feeling. It’s childhood warmth and safety. It’s the taste of coziness and family around the fire.
Now, off we go to find a pumpkin spice beverage at a one-of-a-kind mom-and-pop coffee shop here in our new, brilliant town.
Let us know your favorite seasonal drink from your hometown coffee shop.
