Subject: New Inland Empire Coffee Roaster - Lift
 

Riverside has long been bereft of having a roaster in residence. This has always surprised me because I have always thought they could support one. Now they have one. It's called Lift and is over off Central (address is on Central) and San Diego.

It has a typical coffee shop ambiance. They do pour over, siphon and espresso drinks. Since I'm not the espresso hounds most of you are, I can't tell you a thing about what they use or how well the use it to make espresso and caps and the like. But siphon always fascinates me. It's uncommon but something I always go for the first time if a place does it.

The barista seemed unsure how to use it. The other person there, who acted like the owner, explained a bit on how. For all that it wasn't bad. I had an Ethiopian, something.

That's probably my biggest complaint is that they don't say much about the coffees save country of origin. I always like to know more and to see if I can taste the notes the roaster says are there.

They have room to grow and I hope they do. They had a fair number of people there.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

do you game?:

I just asked, and the guy at least knew right away that the Ethiopian was a Yerg. Just been there once, but I found it promising. Good coffee and competently executed pourover. Cookies aren't bad, either.

A good coffeehouse IMO and I hope they do well.
