The Bangor Daily News has published a report on the large roasting facility and cafe that Coffee by Design is constructing in East Bayside.
They are building a futuristic cafe, which opens in early 2014. Anchored by an island bar, it will showcase the latest coffee extraction techniques. Because the coffee industry is changing rapidly, so are they.
“We want to make this fun,” said Spear. “We want people to have choices.”
Customers will be able to make their own blends, join a home-roasting club and, much like a brewery, go behind the scenes to smell, taste and sample beans as they go from bag to cup.
