a cup of sugarbrowns

July 18, 2011

sugarbrowns delivered a much needed caffeine jolt after our early morning wake up to see palo duro canyon. its distant location in lubbock has always made me wary of its true caliber but jacob kept singing the praises of the baristas  and their espresso, so i had to give it a chance. i was immediately impressed by their selection of coffee. intelligentsia, as well as brown’s and evocation coffee were all offered as french presses. since we’d just come from intelligentsia we decided to try evocation’s coffee as it was roasted a few miles away in canyon texas. it, on top of the cappuccino and macchiato perked us right up. i love their commitment to coffee as well as their ability to create community through music. jacob played here multiple times in college and their stage is a central part of the cafe environment. they reveal the possibility and necessity of excellent coffee while serving the needs of the large music community in lubbock. sugarbrown’s,you’ve won me over, i look forward to my return and review of evocation’s roastery.

    Sugar Browns is a must stop every time I go to or thru Lubbock. Next time you make it down to Palo During Canyon, you should make a stop at The Palace Coffee Company in Canyon Texas. It’s just under a month old but you wouldn’t know it.

    Actually they’re really cutting down on hosting music. Apparently people buy less coffee if there’s live music going on. At least that’s what I was told.

    They cut down on music because their landlord told them that they were taking up too much parking. Sugar Brown’s were trained by EspressoTrainer.com a few years ago. (my business) Until then, finding a good cup of coffee in Lubbock was nearly impossible.

    Palace has also been trained by me, and they are brewing AJ Coffee Co (also my business).

    Sugar Brown’s rotates their brewed options, including ours. They used to use Brown pretty much exclusively.
