The Ugly Mug Coffeehouse | Soquel - Santa Cruz County

Melanie Wong | Sep 1, 201610:50 PM    

Last week I dropped by The Ugly Mug in Soquel for a morning brew. The owner, Steve Volk, is known for his long time support of AIDS/LifeCycle.

I had a lot of questions about sourcing and when I mentioned that this was my first time there, he gave me a card for a free cup on a return visit. Apparently, one's first cup is on the house.

Coffee beans are from Peter James in San Leandro. The raw milk for my cappuccino came from Schoch Dairy in Salinas. The ice cream is made by Santa Cruz's Mission Hill Creamery.

A more traditional type of espresso roast with darker notes of earth, cocoa and torrefaction, full and round mouthfeel, and ending just on the verge of bitterness. Very silky microfoam melded well into the whole.
