Caravan Coffee is a bijou café serving light to medium roast coffees in an alluring ambiance that elicits admiration. Upon entering, it is immediately apparent, by the meticulous manner in which they lay out their space, that the caravanners care deeply about every aspect of the coffee trade. The details of visual and practical appeal are filled with intention and can be seen in the pour over kettles, the authentic wooden trays used to serve espressos, and the condensation-less Kinto cups brimming with palate cleansing sparkling water. The drinks are crafted on a leather finish granite countertop which faces outward, fostering an intimate atmosphere that invites the customer into the coffee creation process. The unique under-counter espresso system contributes to an open atmosphere by circumventing the traditional setup in which an espresso machine separates the consumer from the producer. There is a large glass pane through which the customer is able to observe the roasting process, and can see the warehouse filled with shelves containing bags of unroasted coffee.
As with any café that one visits, coffee should be more than a drink—it should be an experience. At Caravan this experience has been thoughtfully tailored to ensure that patrons leave satiated and inspired.
