Each day at St. Thomas Roasters’s residential-style coffee shop, a Diedrich roaster transforms fresh beans into 20 distinctive blends such as dark-roasted Columbian Supremo, Honduras fair-trade organic, and a special Linglestown blend. Flavored beans reward tongues tuckered out from envelope-licking sprees with varieties such as crème brûlée and snickerdoodle. Baristas also summon apple croissants, chocolate-covered pretzels, and other treats to sate rumbling stomachs. Customers opting for store-brewed beverages can sip lattes and french-pressed brews inside beneath glowing lamps at wooden tables or head outside to patio tables on the wraparound porch, which hosts live-music events.
St. Thomas Roasters
Every day since 2000, the tantalizing aromas of roasting coffee have flooded St. Thomas Roasters as staffers create a variety of bean blends using an onsite Diedrich roaster. Their creations include fair-trade organic coffee from Honduras, a special Linglestown blend, and flavored roasts including dark-chocolate dust and cinnamon sticky bun. Meanwhile, on the first floor of their shop, they transform the freshly roasted beans into piping-hot cups of coffee and espresso drinks, complementing sweet and savory food options such as apple croissants, breakfast pastries, and paninis.
The shop itself, housed in a residential building with a stone façade, offers the comforts of home as patrons cozy up inside or head to the porch to watch live music from a rotating lineup of artists. They can also bring home bags of beans to grind at home or use as props for a coffeehouse-themed sitcom.
