Subject: Ohmies Coffee Bar + Yoga Studio
Location: Roselle, NJ
WiFi?: yes
Rating: 6+ [see key]

Coffee pairs well with a lot of things in life. Chocolate, cake, long nature walks, mornings, chocolate cake, late nights and fruit are all things I think go well with a quality cup of coffee. Thus why not exercise? Aside from the risks of vigorous movement with a hot beverage, the coupling makes sense, especially since many people have come to accept black coffee as a delicious, healthy drink. Thus when I found a coffee bar and yoga studio in my travels through Roselle, I was surprised that I had not found such a place sooner.

Ohmies sits in an inconspicuous, single-floor brick building on Wood Avenue. Inside, the space is quite vibrant, having a beautiful array of colorful wall art, large plants and gorgeous furniture. 

As for the coffee, they use NYC's Devocion, a roaster sourcing exclusively Colombian coffee. On the afternoon of my visit, I ordered an espresso of their Toro blend and a pourover of a single origin dubbed Citrus, a coffee that hails from a farm called La Selva (or “The Jungle”) in Cundinamarca. The espresso, pulled short/medium with brown crema, exploded with notes of bright strawberry, chocolate, cherry punch, wheat cracker, fried corn and a little lime zest. The pourover also made for a bright, brilliant coffee full of blueberry, tangerine, dulce de leche, almond, a little hibiscus and cream, proving to be one of the best Colombian coffees I have ever had. 

While I did not hang around for a trapeze class, I would return just for the coffee. Thus, if yoga is your thing, this place could be a veritable wonderland for you if you live near Roselle. In any matter, give Ohmies a try the next time you happen to be nearby. 

These wonderful folks made this visit possible in part. Make sure to check them out!
