Quantum Bean Coffee

One of my favorite types of coffeehouses are ones blooming deep in residential neighborhoods. There's something oddly appropriate about quality shops nestled in the thick of family dwellings; in my opinion, it puts the coffee in community.

On a recent trip through Morgantown, I found Quantum Bean Coffee, a coffee shop that seemed to really fit the mold of a community cafe. Anchored in the middle of suburbia and not far from WVU, Quantum occupies a slightly bland brownstone structure with a classy interior that is both cozy and vast.

As for coffee, they roast their own beans. The day of my visit, I ordered up an espresso of their Entanglement (house espresso blend) and a pour over of a single origin Ethiopian. The espresso, pulled short/medium with brown crema, smacked of hazelnut, vanilla, sugar cookie, raisin, malt, cherry and black tea, proving toothsome and deep with a nice pop of fruitiness. The pour over was also met with accolade, dishing out sweet notes of strawberry, wheat ale, fresh scone, mineral water, a little bran and some celery within a light body.

While I felt very much at home sitting at their communal bar, I sadly had to bid adieu to Quantum soon after polishing off my drinks. If you happen to be in the area or you're fortunate enough to live nearby, definitely make a stop at Quantum Bean Coffee.

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