When I make it back to my old stomping grounds, I like to stop in and frequent local businesses, giving them the love they deserve in a county with severe economic woes. Yesterday, I stopped in at Small Town Coffee Roasters located in the hamlet of Rutherfordton, NC, in order to pick up a cup of their magical elixir. This was much needed little liquid refreshment for my two hour drive home.
I had heard great things about this shop from raconteur and attorney, Chris Callahan, and knew that if he said it was good, it was a place to add to my list. Small Town Coffee Roasters was definitely worth my stop. I’ll be heading back soon to learn more about this little shop, sample more of their caffeinated wares, and, hopefully, hang out with Monte as he roasts green coffee beans to glistening perfection in a vintage Royal #1.
If you stop in, ask for an El Tim. Drink two. Leave with a delicate caffeine buzz you’ll wish never ends.
