Blue Mind Roasting now has a café at Broadway and 38th Street. Their coffee is thoughtfully roasted and ethically sourced, resulting in a product where you can taste the love.
Sarah and Andy Hassler have been perfecting their craft since 2014. You’ll find the same passion at the 38th street café. The menu is simple but expertly delivered. The oat milk vanilla latte starts with a perfect shot of espresso – a deep rich heart, golden body and foamy crema along with a perfectly steamed milk that is drinkable and fluffy and mixes beautifully with the espresso. You can also get a local milk option like Dandy Breeze.
The space is bright, modern and clean – a perfect space to work from or read in the afternoon warmth.
Pastries from Leviathan Bakery and Native Bread are served warm on a ceramic plate and wooden tray. The gooey chocolate chip cookies were a treat! The space encourages you to stay and sip for a while.
For sustainable options on the go, the cafe offer compostable silverware and the cutest travel mugs.
At the store, I loaded up on my favorite Midtown Roast, a medium roast coffee with notes of chocolate, caramel and cherry. The coffee bags can be recycled, like any other grocery store bag.
For those taking the redline to work, the café is just a quick jog across 38th street, a perfect stop on the way to work in the morning.
In addition to being a lovely place offering sustainable options for patrons, their passion for supporting the community with their Take What You Need Community Project is inspiring and further validates that they are a coffee shop for our whole community.
