For some time, Counter Culture Coffee has been supplying coffee to a variety of Washington, D.C. coffee bars. While reading this article about a soon-to-open coffee bar, I was surprised to learn that Counter Culture Coffee — which buys and roasts its own coffee — happens to be based not in Seattle or Boston, but . . . . North Carolina.
I guess that shouldn't be all that shocking. After all, coffee goes well with a slice of sweet potato pie.
