Rothrock Coffee

Rating: 6+ [see key]

Nearly every time I have to cross the state of Pennsylvania, I end up going through State College. While it's hardly a burden given the beautiful campus and local amenities, timing is crucial in order to make it a relaxing layover. Fortunately I played my cards right on my most recent trip and I ended up grabbing coffee at local roaster Rothrock Coffee.

Situated in a strip mall not very close to campus, Rothrock offers a cozy shop for local residents and students alike.

As for the coffee, I went with an espresso of Thickhead and a drip coffee of Single Speed. The espresso, pulled to a medium volume with brown crema, smacked of chocolate, blood orange, lime, cream, thyme and a little broth, proving both deep and sweet. The drip also made for a toothsome brew, with notes of honey, bran, chocolate graham cracker, pear, molasses, skim milk and a little bit of root beer.

After polishing off my drinks, I was pleased to find an excellent place to refuel the next time I am in State College. Whether you are local or passing through, definitely give Rothrock a visit.

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