“Detailed work, method and obsession...” These are the tools owners Story and Garold bring to AVOCA coffee, the favorite roastery and espresso lounge near Southside. AVOCA focuses on making excellent coffee by locals for locals. They’ve been known to team with other local businesses for special events and have begun selling their roasts at the Cowtown Farmers Market. They support the arts by displaying works by local artists of the month.
With a focus on organics and direct trade, the owners like to know what happened to every bean from seed to cup. Every bag or cup is roasted onsite by fifth-generation master roaster Garold, guaranteeing that every cup they sell meets the high expectations of even the most discerning connoisseur.

Drip Coffee Company has a single mission: “To provide the highest-quality coffee available in the world.” It’s a lofty goal, but it’s not out of reach when your company’s founder has two decades of experience in the business, including starting a Boston-based company named “Best Coffee” by Boston Magazine.
Drip’s coffee is all roasted daily onsite from 100 percent Arabica beans. You can enjoy varieties including South American, African, Arabian, Pacific and more. But these beans aren’t provided by giant mega-corps. All are grown on small estates and family-owned farms. If you can’t stop by to enjoy it in their elegant storefront, go to their website to buy brews you can enjoy at home.
