The multi-roaster coffeehouse is one of my favorite iterations of a coffee-serving establishment. Poised to introduce its consumers to different coffee purveyors and offerings, it's much like the local taproom with an ever-rotating selection for the fanatical beer enthusiasts. And while not every city possesses a ton of such venues, I am fairly certain most possess at least one.
Detroit can find itself a copious selection of great coffees at Corktown's Astro Coffee. Situated on Michigan Avenue, a stones throw from the old Michigan Central Station, Astro juts out invitingly from the red and green brick surroundings. Within the shop, light pours in from the large front windows to illuminate the long bar, chalked walls and energetic staff.
These wonderful folks made this visit possible in part. Make sure to check them out!
