Travellers House Coffee

Subject: Travellers House Coffee

Rating: 5+ [see key]

In my experience, too few coffee shops are open past supper. Yes, for the most part I get the economics as to why most shops close up around four, but man does an evening meet-up over well-crafted coffee hit the proverbial spot.

But occasionally I am able to find a shop of repute open late, with one of my more recent exploits to a Missourian shop called Travellers House. Located in the beautiful town of Springfield, Travellers resides in a strip mall, occupying a large space with lots of tall windows, appealing decor and a horde of seating options.

As for their coffee, they utilize No Coast Coffee, a local Springfield roaster that I have had good experience with prior. I ordered an espresso of their espresso blend and a pourover of a single origin Costa Rica. The espresso, pulled short with blonde-ish brown crema, smacked of chocolate nibs, lemon, ginger, vanilla and a little seltzer, proving bright and fairly delicious. The pourover similarly delivered a bright and sweet coffee, full of cherry cola, passion fruit, almond milk, lime, raspberry and caramel in a medium body. 

To put it bluntly, Travellers made for an excellent stop. Not only was the coffee tasty but I was also able to cross paths with a good friend and colleague for some hearty discussion. If you traverse Springfield, try out one of Travellers House's locations toot sweet. 

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