Truly Great Coffee
Here at Sense of Place Café, we specialize in roasting and serving only premium quality, single-origin and blended fermented coffee.
Our very own Enzymo Coffee undergoes a natural fermentation process and is then roasted by a SCAE Roasting Professional certified and Q-Arabica Grading certified barista in small batches.
This not only allows us to deliver the freshest coffee with optimum flavor to our customers every day, but also results in coffee with lower levels of acidity that is much easier on the stomach.
Not only do we swear by our Enzymo coffee, but so do other coffee aficionados: in 2019, Sense of Place Cafe was awarded a Bronze Medal in the Golden Bean North America Coffee Roasters Competition, the largest global roasters competition and conference.
We believe drinking coffee should be an experience, and we can guarantee that yours will be truly one-of-a-kind after a cup of coffee from our café.
To amplify your coffee-drinking experience even further, we welcome you to try our specialty pour-over coffee at the bar. Here, you will be personally served by our certified barista with a quality cup of coffee that is brewed to order using the Hario V60 (Hario means in Japanese "The King of Glass").
Although this option is not for those in a rush, it’s perfect for those desiring the full experience of high-quality coffee. At the bar, customers take the time to see, smell, and taste subtly different notes of flavors and textures with every sip that they may not have noticed before. Not only do these differences vary depending on the origin of the coffee beans, but these tastes are also ones that can only be produced by our very own preparatory, roasting, and brewing processes here at Sense of Place Café.
Choose from a variety of coffee flavors that we developed as well as our functional coffee selection at the bar and we will make it right for you.

Specialized Functional Enzymo Coffee
Hero - Ginseng Coffee
Time to let ginseng come to the rescue in your daily cup of coffee! This mild roast made with Sumatra beans and aged ginseng gives an incredibly full-bodied acidity and bright tangy flavor that lingers in your mouth while simultaneously being balanced by the characteristic deep earthiness of ginseng at the end. Because the ginseng is incorporated into the beans themselves, you can drink its benefits, which include boosting your energy, lowering blood sugar, reducing stress, improving brain function, and having anti-inflammatory effects.
Peace Mojo - Berry Berry Coffee
This mild roast that has been made with a variety of antioxidant-rich berries, including açai, is a truly functional coffee that will help you do a detoxifying cleanse from the inside out. The nutrients from these incorporated berries also promote anti-inflammation and are important for a healthy digestive and nervous system. With subtle floral and almond aromas, the Peace Mojo coffee has consistent, bold berry flavors with a very clean finish that is sure to make you feel refreshed and renewed!
A Walk in the Mountains - SOP Mushroom Coffee
This is our own creation of mushroom coffee that has been made with a unique blend of coffee beans and 10 different wild mushroom extracts: Reishi, Shiitake, Maitake, Turkey Trail, Chaga, Lion’s Mane, Oyster, Cordyceps, Tinder Conk and Hemlock Varnish Shelf.
The resulting coffee contains additional nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants that can help boost your energy. The earthy, musky flavor of these mushrooms combined with our own Enzymo coffee makes this roast one of the healthiest and most robust coffees you'll ever try.
