Homewood just got a little perkier this winter season with the addition of Madden Coffee. Conveniently located at the Homewood’s North Lodge, the new Madden Coffee will be serving up the freshest coffee, espresso, cappuccino, and chai this side of Lake Tahoe.
We are excited to showcase the beans of Vaneli’s Handcrafted Coffee, a roastery from Sacramento. Vaneli’s roasts each Homewood Coffee order just prior to shipment in their gas-fired drum roaster, so you know it’s the freshest bean above 6,000 feet. We also chose Vaneli’s for their responsible coffee buying program, as they buy much of their coffee directly from farmers at fair prices. This gives them a clear understanding of each varietal when making their blends.
How is the coffee? I will let you decide, but as an admitted coffee addict who usually brews his Blue Bottle or Philz coffee from San Francisco, I have been visiting Madden for the past 6 days straight and show no signs of letting up. Madden Coffee also brought in some experienced baristas who know the art of coffee, and staring up at the mountain with an aromatic cup of Joe is the perfect start to any epic day.
