Cup no. 4: PT's Coffee Roasting Company
Got to spend a week at my capitol back in February at a government leadership class called Teenpact. It's awesome! My goal was to get to some kind of coffee shop during the week but time was never really on my side. I'd heard that Topeka had some good ones and couldn't stand the thought of not getting to try at least one. On the last day right before heading back to Wichita, my dad let me drive out of the way to one of the PT's coffee shops. I'm telling you, after a week of nasty hotel coffee, this place was like heaven!
Didn't have a ton of time there but still managed to buy a bag of coffee beans, nutella no-bake cookies, a hot mocha for me, and a couple iced mochas for my dad and sister. Somehow I ended up coming out of there with zero amount of pictures which will explain the lack of them. I know. It's terrible. But hey, this gives just you a another reason to go there for yourself and drink more coffee.
The coffee shop itself was different. A lot of brick & wood. Very, very tiny, but then again maybe my coffee shops in Wichita are huge. I don't know. Anyway, I wasn't very impressed.
The barista was nice though. When he didn't have anything in particular to recommend, I got my mocha. It was good. Nothing stood out about this mocha being different from the others I've tried. The nutella cookies were amazing though!
The beans were awesome! There was a whole shelf thing full of different kinds of packaged whole beans that had been roasted that week. I couldn't make up my mind so I went with the AD ASTRA since it had to do with Kansas. Took it home and those beans turned out to be a very good dark coffee. If I go back, I would definitely get more of the Ad Astra. Very, very good!! Totally recommend it!
So in the end, I liked the mocha, loved the coffee beans, and didn't care for the coffee shop itself so much.
Now you must go check out their Facebook page.
Has anyone else been there? What did you think? I'd love to hear about it!
