The Stirring Coffeehouse | Redding

Melanie Wong | Aug 21, 201802:35 AM    

Recently I spent eight days in Redding, my first visit to this small city. In my trip planning, one of the most interesting discoveries about the food and beverage scene was the thriving coffee culture. And that these coffeehouses and roasters made coffee service part of their religious mission.

The first one I tried was The Stirring Coffeehouse. The interior is simply gorgeous with stark industrial elements softened by wood.

The Stirring is a multi-roaster house, serving three local roasters: Heritage, Theory Collaborative and Feast. During my time in town, I managed to visit all three.

Two choices for espresso grind that day: Heritage espresso and Feast single origin Ethiopian light roast. I chose the latter for my Gibraltar. Gorgeous and so elegant, the brew was fruity, complex and aromatic with a mocha aftertaste. The barista's skills were impressive as well. Lemon loaf is house baked and served warm.

During the Carr Fire emergency, The Stirring opened its doors as a day time refuge for evacuees. All are welcome to gather here to cool off, have some ice water and use the wifi and facilities. My kind of church.
