We hear it pretty much every day.
City folks traveling Interstate 81 stop in thinking they'll grab a quick cup of coffee and be on their way. Then they take a sip, smile, and blurt out something along the lines of "I can't believe I found world-class coffee in the middle of nowhere."
Now, c'mon. It's not Nowhere. It's Home.
It's also Lexington, a small, scenic, historic town in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. We've been craft roasting fine coffees here for more than 30 years and over that time we've won lots of awards that have put us on the coffee map. Forbes included us on its list of the 12 Best Coffee Roasters in the U.S. Food and Wine made us a stop on its road trip itinerary 6 Days of the Best Food in America. USA Today hailed us as "some of America's best coffee." Coffee Review placed us among the Top 30 Coffees of the Year in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020. And we won Golden Bean North American Roasting Competition Silver Medals in 2016, 2017 and 2019.
So, what makes coffee from a small town so special? Flavor. Sumptuous, spectacular, oh-wow-that's-absolutely-amazing flavor. Flavor that comes from discerning crop selection, skillful roasting, and a maniacal obsession with freshness. We could go on about our stringent quality control, our commitment to sustainability and our awesome customer service, but we'd rather let our coffee do the talking. Order online and we'll ship fresh coffee directly to your door. Or, if you're nearby, join us for a cup at our Tasting Room, just off I-81 at Exit 195.
Just be sure to stock up on coffee beans while you're here. It might be a while before you find yourself in the middle of nowhere again.
