Asado Coffee

Now that many places around town take coffee seriously, it’s strange to remember when this inconspicuous coffee shop was the only place in town committed to the craft. Kevin Ashtari, whose obsession with coffee began in the Pacific Northwest, roasts his beans—usually African—in a drum roaster behind the counter daily, and rigorously trains his baristas, resulting in toasty, full-bodied cups of coffee. Seating, lighting and eating are afterthoughts here, so grab a cup of coffee and a bag of beans to go.
