Maybe you have done a wine or an ale trail. Spending the day with your significant other or a group a friends enjoying each other’s company. Why not enjoy a coffee trail together? Or maybe you need a personal, mental health day where you can drink coffee in solitude. Spend the day taking a drive from Detroit to the Bay and stop at some amazing coffee spots. So, take a break from the corporate chains of Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks or Tim Horton’s and give some Michigan-roasted coffee a try:
This coffee trail starts at Madcap Coffee Company in Downtown Detroit. Try their complex Kenyan, with notes of grapefruit, lavender, and mixed berries. If you like sweet, I also recommend their vibrant Lake Effect Blend (a mix of Ethiopian and Kenyan), with notes of lemon, apricot, and jasmine. This location is attached to the Shinola Hotel complex which means if you are from out of town or in need of a local getaway, you have a place to stay before embarking on the rest of your coffee adventure.
Before heading to your next stop, make sure you have a full tank.
Sabbath Coffee Roasters in Downtown Clawson will provide you with the pause you need within your day through a fantastic cup of coffee. I thought their Costa Rican was delicious, with tasting notes of grapefruit, sugar, and dark chocolate. I also relaxed with a cup of their Ritual House Blend (a mix of Ethiopian and Guatemalan roast), with tasting notes of lemon, praline pecan, and berry jam. Click here to read my full review.
Fireside Coffee Company in Swartz Creek. Buy a bag of their bold and delicious Flint Strong roast. It is a blend of Indonesian, Honduran, Ethiopian, and Brazilian. It has nutty tasting notes with dark chocolate and apples. When you enjoy this blend, they donate a portion of the sales to the Flint Child & Health Development Fund. If you decide to purchase a bag of their Frontline Fuel roast, which is a different blend, they will donate a bag to frontline and healthcare workers. Coffee for a cause.
Populace Coffee Roasters in Downtown Bay City. They also have locations in Petoskey and Detroit. Try their fresh Columbian, with notes of lemon, cherries, and milk chocolate. It stands out because of its sweetness and silky smooth mouthfeel. If you like sweetness, I also recommend having a cup of their mellow Mexican, with notes of cane sugar, almonds, and lemon. Similar to Fireside Coffee Company, a portion of the proceeds from their special edition coffees are donated to important local causes.
