Coffee shops are places of familiarity, friends, and good conversation. Of course, this magical environment we all love would not be possible without the crafting ability of the barista and the well-maintained equipment they use to make our...

Summer is officially here and no matter where you are (but especially in humid Cincinnati!), a nice cold coffee drink is exactly what you need to survive the heat. We won’t lie: cold drinks can be confusing. So what really is the difference between cold brew, iced coffee, Japanese iced coffee, and even the new nitro-coffee method? Well, here’s your answer: Cold Brew (Toddy): As the name suggests, “cold brew” coffee is brewed using cold or room temperature water and is left to...

Has anyone heard of that big company called Proctor and Gamble?  We have one of P&G’s employees to thank for making coffee a huge deal in Columbia. It is kind of hard to believe that a million dollar industry was all due to one man’s work, but it isn’t hard to believe that he lived in our beloved Queen City! Hacienda Cincinnati is one of our medium roasts with flavors of chamomile, lemon, lime, and melon. Mr. Orlando Lincoln Flye grew up on a...
