If you think Interrobang Espresso Blend can only be used as espresso it’s time to think again.

We call it an espresso blend and it shines bright when pulled well. But we also enjoy Interrobang prepared as drip/pour-over or French Press. Heavy chocolate, vanilla candy and spice notes fill the palate. Full-bodied, robust, but with a delicate side.

Interrobang is for anyone looking for a full-bodied, darker coffee with plenty of origin flavor that brews up well no matter how you do it.

An art exhibit by Floco Torres. On display now at ACR.

Floco Torres is a hip-hop musician, 1/2 of the hip-hop duo Free Black!, producer and community outreach director.
In 2017 he released a project called “The Porsche EP” with Shawty Slim. The EP reflected his feelings toward Porsches as a cultural symbol of success, being classic and timeless. The images on display at ACR were created in connection to that project and are Floco’s first public exhibit of his artwork. If you see a Porsche, it’s a good day.

Thank you for 5 years.

This year marked five years of serving coffee from our downtown Akron shop. While we weren’t able to celebrate the way we would have liked, we cannot understate how very appreciative we are for all of the support we have received over the past five years. We love what we do and we do it for you. So thank you.
