Welcome to the
beginning of a short
set of reviews on
coffee houses in
Since I am posting this
on a Sunday, I’m
starting off the series
with a Coffee House
that has a Sunday
The Camp House in
as an church on
Notice the huge open space and the mosaic in the back. That’s pretty ingenious fro a church. I could imagine myself sitting there, sipping great coffee and listening to the word.
The wood, concrete, exposed ac and high ceilings gave it an airy industrial feel. The large area gave everyone enough space to work or talk on their own, while I noticed people who seemed to be meeting each other and hanging out at the entrance.
I got a Finca El Puente which came in a black teapot with a mug, which I’ve never seen before. I briefly wondered if they gave me the right thing at first, and then realized that the teapot was to keep the coffee warm. I’m a slow coffee drinker, I like to take a sip every few minutes so I usually end up with some cold, yucky coffee that goes to waste. Here, because the teapot kept the coffee warm I could actually drink the coffee slowly over an extended length of time without it getting cold and gross. YES!
The coffee itself was a Honduras roast with the tasting notes as nutty, brown sugar, and plum. I definitely tasted the plum, which overruled the nutty and brown sugar flavors and ended up leaving sweet-sour aftertaste. Not a coffee that I would get everyday, but it was a fun coffee.
Mary, my sister-in-law and tour guide of Chattanooga got a Nirvana which she described as "Awesome" and "Sweet, creamy, reminiscent of chai but with a roobios flair."
Once I did a little bit of research, I realized that The Camp House is owned by Mission Chattanooga which aims to meet people where they are. You can learn more in the following link.
