There is a new, locally owned coffee shop in Downtown Clawson, Michigan. They opened in October across from White Wolf Patisserie. I relaxed my mind, filled my cup, took a sip, slowed life down, and celebrated all that is good today with the help of delicious specialty coffee.
Our local independent coffee shops are an essential part of a community, not just a place where we go get to get a caffeine fix. Trevor and Miranda Graham, husband-and-wife, met over a cup of coffee in 2012. They quickly took their love for coffee to the next level by roasting and selling their own beans.
Despite our current pandemic, they have opened their own, must-visit shop with a coffee roaster imported from Turkey. Quality pastries are delivered to the shop day-to-day via Cannelle, a French Patisserie in Downtown Detroit, owned by Chef Matt Knio. Espresso drinks are made with local dairy from Guernsey’s of Northville.
The Graham’s center their independent business on incredible customer service and fresh coffee beans which are available by the bag and wholesale. The cozy 800-square-foot space gives off a very modern and sleek vibe. A smoothly designed walk-up window is also available during business hours for customers who want to stay outside and order. I went inside to order.
I decided to relax 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. As of right now, they do not have spots to sit inside due to the pandemic, so I walked across the street and sipped my coffee inside Noble Fish, a sushi restaurant.
After my sushi and first cup of coffee, I was intrigued. So I decided to walk back to the shop for a second cup. This time I decided to have their Costa Rican, with tasting notes of grapefruit, sugar, and dark chocolate. I enjoyed this cup while browsing at Flipside Records in Downtown Clawson and finding a used Fleetwood Mac Rumours album in the dollar section. It was a good day. This shop has made it onto my “Best Coffee in Michigan” list.
Thank you, Sabbath Coffee Roasters, for filling the void and providing me with the pause I needed within my day through a fantastic cup of coffee. I will bring our kids with me next time so they can enjoy a pastry while I try your other coffee roasts. Cheers.
