The Coffee Beanery's methods of roasting and brewing coffee transcends from process to artistry. For 36 years, the international chain has roasted its own hand-selected beans at its Michigan headquarters using its trademarked Right Roast technique, where humans take the place of robots to roast small batches to their peak flavor. Each of their 31 kosher-certified coffee flavors set taste buds alight without the use of sugar, alcohol, lactose, or glow sticks. Decaffeinated versions drip into cups sans chemicals, as each batch is made with only the Swiss Water Process.

Rivulets of chocolate syrup mark the frothy peaks of whipped cream that top Idle Awhile Coffee's signature coffee drink, the Whipaccino. At this coffee shop, no one will blame you if you forgo a traditional latte or cappuccino for this frosty treat. They also wouldn't blame you if you used the free Wi-Fi, not for work, but to simply pass some time. In fact, nothing makes husband-and-wife owners Pat and Sandra Ball more pleased than when their customers stop in for a little downtime, daydreaming as they sip their coffee drinks, nibble on a baked good, and admire the local art hung on the walls and on the underside of each table.
But despite the laid back vibe, this shop takes its craft seriously. The coffee is sourced from Saugatuck's Uncommon Grounds, a company that purchases beans from small farms and roasts them in small batches. The baked goods, meanwhile, are all made in house by staffer Amy Soffran, who is known as much for her joyful laugh as her delicious lemon bars and scones. And Pat and Sandra have also put a lot of thought into the way their cafe looks, decorating the space with creature comforts such as over-stuffed armchairs, and decking the outdoor patio with swings.
If the owners of Dessert Oasis Coffee were stranded on a desert island with access to three worldly items, they’d choose a live band, a mountain of chocolate, and their trusty 3-kilo bean roaster. Lined with plush seating and a crackling fireplace, their downtown Rochester shop is cozier than a sun-scorched sandbar or a mattress made of inflated blowfish. Inside, the scents of cream and chocolate melt together as chefs bake fresh desserts and baristas craft more than 300 gourmet coffee drinks. Sourced from exotic locales such as Costa Rica and Papua New Guinea, small batches of coffee beans bask in a US Roaster Corp roasting machine before percolating in the café’s brewer. Throughout the day, groups gather in the fireside reading room to share pots of cheese fondue and slices of house-made cheesecake, which come in flavors such as pumpkin, key lime, and turtle. Musicians filter into the café at night, peppering its soundtrack of fork clinks and steamer whistles with their sweet stylings.
Juicy mangos, strawberries, pineapples, and limes aren't safe in the hands of Crushed Premium founder Roz Cordova.
