Review of Bergies Coffee

My wife and I were invited to a little party out in Downtown Gilbert. It was a crazy long drive, but well worth it. It is like a little piece of Radiator Springs right in the middle of Arizona, minus the talking cars. I love this little street. If it wasn't an hour drive, I would spend a lot of time there.

We were sitting out on the patio of one restaurant and I was longing to be at the BBQ restaurant across the street. Then I realized there was a little coffee shop across the street. It was getting late so my wife googled when it closed...I had 4 minutes before it closed. I hesitated for a  moment, but the walk signal turned on the cross walk switch to go and I made a break for it.

I didn't get much time to admire the massive patio on the way in, because I was trying to slide in before they locked up. I strolled in and the guy behind the bar said they were closed, but he was pumping the coffee out of the air pots. I was like, "hey, I just wanted to grab some black coffee to review for my blog..." He pulled a cup and pumped some of the left over coffee and sent me on my way.

The coffee shop was just a little portable building that was well shaped in side, but not meant to hold a lot of people. The goal was definitely to have people outside on the patio. The patio had hanging lights and a charming secret garden kind of feel which was lovely on a cool night.

As for the coffee, it was good. Real good. I didn't get any information because they were closed when I snuck in and the barista was nice enough to give me some coffee to try, so I didn't want to push it. It had an earthy and dark chocolate flavor with a little dryness. My thought was that it was a well roasted Indonesian coffee, but I really don't know. I do know that the coffee was roasted and brewed well enough that I would go back and get more.

Overall, I strongly recommend hitting this spot if you find yourself out in Downtown Gilbert. The patio is wonderful (maybe not during summer) and the coffee is good.

2017 Goals

Sitting here trying to think of something to write about, I realize I am kind of in limbo. I haven't had a lot of new coffee experiences because of the craziness of the holidays and I don't have any grand plans for the future....wait a second...that's terrible. How can a business not have plans for the future? I need some goals.

Test Batches on the Behmor

I purchased my Behmor from Seattle Coffee Gear. It was kind of a no brainer (no this is not an endorsement). They didn't charge tax or shipping...AND they gave me a free 1 lb bag of green coffee beans. It was the best deal.
Since I didn't have to pay for those green beans, I put them to good use in testing my new roaster.

Barista Capsule

I was cruising through my back log of Coffee News emails and spotted this article that caught my eye: The Barista Capsule. I had to know what it was. I have been working on coffee cart plans for a while but could never really figure it out. It was always to big or too heavy, or we couldn’t figure out how to power everything. I realize I was most likely making it far too complicated, but these guys looked like they figured it out.
