Brooke Humphries (owner, Acme F&B/Barcadia Bar & Grill/Itâ€™ll Do/Barcadia Bar) will open the doors at Mudsmith this coming Monday, January 28th. Mudsmith promises to deliver a unique coffee shop experience serving celebrated Four Barrel coffee out of San Francisco.
Located on Greenville Avenue, across from the future site of Trader Joeâ€™s, Mudsmith baristas will be using Chemex and V-60 for slow pour over methods and two custom made Stradas by La Marzocco for specialty espresso drinks. French press will be the house coffee. All coffee drinks will be carefully made with the Four Barrel beans and specific technique. Eight craft beers and four wines on tap will rotate frequently. Fresh pastries baked in-house and a selection of sandwiches such as the jalapeno meatloaf with redneck cheddar and guava BBQ sauce and a ham and cheese with raisin chutney also made in-house with local and organic ingredients will be offered. Three Happy Cows yogurt, Roots Juices and several other local companiesâ€™ product will fill the shelves of the coolers.
Humphries explains, â€œI wanted to create a coffee shop experience reminiscent of New York, Portland or San Francisco that combines the underground elements of local craft beer with craft coffee in an environment that’s hip yet rustic and modern.â€
With metal and steelwork provided by Steve Mabry of Rusty Buffalo and the interior designed by Ryan Chaney of Chaney 44, Mudsmith evokes a feeling of comfortable community in a rustic, reclaimed modern space with â€œold schoolâ€ design elements.
About Four Barrel Coffee (source: www.fourbarrelcoffee.com)
As with everything we do at Four Barrel, sourcing the highest quality green coffee requires a relationship built on mutual respect and a passion for quality. Sourcing coffee the way we do is time consuming, expensive and plain hard work. But, it is the only way we can vouch for the quality of our coffees, firsthand. And, itâ€™s the only way we can uphold our end of our most important relationshipsâ€”the ones with our farmers.
We are old-fashioned about roasting. We rely on highly trained people, not machines, to see through the intention of our roasting style: to highlight the intrinsic qualities of a coffee that drove us to buy it in the first place: cleanness, sweetness, acidity, complexity. We roast on a hulking beast of a vintage German roasterâ€”one that was made to hold consistent heat and let air flow through in simple ways controlled by a person.
