I recently traveled to Jacksonville, Florida on a business trip and learned several interesting facts about the city. First, their huge oak trees are beautiful! Second, Jacksonville, known as the “Bold new city from the south”. Third and the most important fact, Jacksonville is home to an up and coming third wave coffee roaster & artesian. So, for the next minute or two, I thought I would share my experience at “Bold Bean Coffee Roasters“. Remember, Jacksonville is the “Bold New City” and that is where they draw their name. “Bold” has nothing to do with dark roasting levels here. These guys are serious about crafting a great cup of coffee from acquiring the beans all the way through the variety of brewing methods they offer.
How I found a good cup of coffee in jacksonville, florida
As a side note, you might want to try this method in your local area. There could be some hidden coffee shop gems close by. I found Bold Bean using google maps and the keywords “COFFEE ROASTER”. That is how I usually begin my quest. They were smart to describe themselves as offering “single-origin coffee”. I look at the ratings, reviews and most importantly the pictures when I do my initial search. Next, I visit their website and look to see any signs of brewing methods and any other clues to help me decide whether to visit. Bold Bean Coffee Roasters not only claimed they roasted coffee, but “single origin” coffee. After looking at their website I confirmed that they offer single pour servings using the Hario v60 dripper and had unique single serve origins on their menu board. No airpots here! Cha-Ching! By the way, don’t waste your time going to a coffee establishment that has airpots (large sealed dispensing pots). You will most likely the fresh cup you are looking for. You will get a fresh cup of brew at Bold Bean.
