The crew at Mundos — Dan, Sarah, Jack, and John — do more than just brew regular coffee. They focus on specialty coffee, aka any coffee that scores above 80 points on the 100 point scale of certified coffee tasters that are licensed Q coffee graders. Mundos only purchases and roasts coffees that have a cupping points score of 86 or higher, so you know you’re really getting the good stuff.
The crew also work hard to plan out what they call “epic adventures” for their customers, including game nights, calligraphy and drawing sessions, and live music featuring a wide range of acoustic performers.
Add in house-made cupcakes and other baked goods, crepes, and additional artisan coffee offerings like siphon, pour-over, and nitro cold brew, and this place is a coffee lovers’ dream.
One highlight in particular is Mundos’ Affogato, an Italian coffee-based dessert of vanilla ice cream doused in a shot of freshly-brewed espresso. Sweet, rich, and the ideal balance of sugar coma and caffeine jolt, we recommend it for any time of day or night.
Get it at Mundos Roasting Co., 708 Boon St. in Traverse City, mundosroastingco.com or (231) 252-9500.
