"I have brewed coffee from 817 Coffee Roasters several times now from various origins. I primarily brew the coffee by means of espresso. I have pulled shots of espresso that have ranged from notes of chocolate, to citrus, to gram cracker, and more. The roaster is very knowledgeable, selects only quality coffee beans for roasting, and roast-to-order.  As a coffee shop owner, I highly recommend 817 Coffee Roasters to other coffee shops as well as home baristas”
