White Rock Coffee - new ownership

gromit | Jun 13, 2010 12:49 PM

Stopped in at White Rock Coffee this morning to buy some of my favorite locally-roasted coffee only to find they have a new owner (sign listed Matt Johnson, I believe?). The coffee I was expecting has been replaced by vacuum-sealed bags from Madcap coffee of Grand Rapids, MI. The "coffee of the day" descriptions of the two varieties available were indecipherable, and the counter service wasn't much help, so I'll have to wait to see how it comes out on the french press before passing judgement. (The cup of drip coffee I took away wasn't anything to be excited about, but there's a lot of variables there so again, not passing judgement yet.) Of course, who's to know if this is what I should expect going forward? I haven't been able to find any chatter about this change, so thought I'd start the discussion and see if there's more info out there.

Anyone that's been into Angry Catfish - do they sell whole bean Intelligentsia or just brew with it?
