I’ve plotted all of the points of origin for the current coffee varietals available at Habit, on this interactive Google Map. Clicking on the flags will take you to a region, giving you information about the varietal, and allowing you to zoom in and out to give you a broader perspective on where our coffee comes from. As more information is collected on the current offerings, and as new coffees arrive, this map will be updated.
Recently, a customer told me that Habit has the best decaf in town. It opened my eyes a little bit, because working as a barista, you don’t get a comment like that everyday. Decaf seems to be something that’s put on the back-burner, something that isn’t discussed on a daily basis nearly as much as our regular espresso. Because of this, it’s kind of mysterious — we label all of our other coffee with their varietals, right down to the farms and regions of origin. But decaf has always just been “Swiss Water Decaf Espresso”. What does that mean?

- The most disgusting coffee we’ve ever tasted
- Burned to shit
- The can that it comes in has the quote: “It’s all in the beans… and I’m just full of beans”
- The sticker keeping the foil bag inside closed reads simply “SEPT 28”, and “DIG THE FRESHNESS AND THE FLAVOR”. Is that a roast date or best before? What year? And in terms of flavor… motor oil.
