Coffee cup

Update August

Mountain City continues to roast specialty coffee and sells to everyone at the same ridiculously low prices. Good coffee is available to those who seek it.

Covid transmission is still "medium" in Buncombe County according to the CDC. We note however that hospital admissions and test positivity rate are continuing to trend upward. Our personal policy and recommendation is to wear a mask in all public settings and avoid crowded indoor spaces. If you haven't been vaccinated, please do so as soon as you can, and get your booster as soon as you're eligible -- and get your kids vaccinated as well!

No-contact pick up is available at our roastery 24hrs a day. Your coffee will be inside the entrance vestibule in one of the white metal lockers. Look for your name on one of the doors.

For a wider selection of single origin coffees or different blends, please try High Noon Coffee Roasters with whom we share space and more.

For directions to our roastery on Charlotte Street, go here.

Here's a reminder to use enough coffee in your coffee. There's nothing more frightening than a weak cup of coffee. The note on the wall says "use ... a heaping tablespoon for each cup". This 1941 ad from the Pan-American Coffee Bureau was one of many in which they urged Americans to make stronger coffee.
