In our search for a good travel mug, we tested ceramic, glass, steel, double- and single-walled designs, and found that this tumbler from Grosche had the best heat retention of them all. It also has a good seal between the silicone lid and glass, and the glass itself, while not unbreakable is pretty damn tough. Sure, it lacks the complete fake-takeaway-cup look, but it will fit in your cupholder. We currently carry them in both 12 and 15 ounce sizes, $11.50 and $14 respectively. They also look great with our reusable sleeves. We also have a small supply of French presses from the same glass maker.
We offer public coffee tastings the second and fourth Sunday of every month. These tastings are an opportunity to try three different single-origin coffees side-by-side while learning about where each of the coffees come from and what makes each unique. At Qualia, we believe that a focus on brewed coffee is the best way to highlight the wide variety of flavors that coffee naturally exhibits. Our tastings are a great way to build your experience with different coffees. The tastings start promptly at 2:00 and end at 2:30. They are held in the roasting room at the back of the shop and they are free.
Qualia Coffee is a full-service coffee shop that also serves as the home of Fresh Off the Roast, a small-batch coffee roasting company dedicated to sourcing recently harvested beans from around the world. We strive to provide as much information as possible about where the beans come from and what you can expect them to taste like. Our coffee is also available through select farmers markets. We sell all our beans directly to customers so that we can ensure you get them at the peak of freshness.
