A little background
Bull Run Coffee is a family owned, single-cup specialty coffee roaster in the Lyndale neighborhood, close to Lake Harriet. What makes this coffee house so special is their devotion to creating an exceptional cup of coffee. To get the best flavor, they source Arabica beans from around the world and they prepare all their orders, “single-cup” style.
“Single-cup coffee” means that every latte, cappuccino, or gooey macchiato is made to order and not a single minute before. They even grind the beans to each guest’s order. This is no average “cup of Joe”; this is something to be appreciated.
Each barista is trained in coffee, espresso, milk preparation, and four different roasting techniques: siphoning, French press, manual brew bar, and the Clover, which involves weighing and grinding beans to craft a brew to perfection.
Baristas were also the first in Minneapolis to use the Synesso Hydra, which allows them to manually adjust the pressure levels, brew temperature, and moisture concentration to give guests a truly unique experience that will satisfy their taste buds.
Remember when I raved about the coffee indulgences at Yum!? I still love their coffee and will probably go there for a treat, but if you haven’t experienced the craftsmanship of Bull Run Coffee, I urge, drop what you’re doing and book it to 3346 Lyndale Ave. S.| Minneapolis, MN. They know how to make one excellent cup of coffee. Reminding me of the cappuccinos and lattes from Poland, I’ve since become a repeat customer.
Not only is it fun watching them prepare your brew, you get to admire their coffee art after you take a seat. I feel so bad ruining it every time I take a sip! 🙂
As previously mentioned, the flavor is amazing. I could really taste the warm, roasted flavors of the coffee. There’s almost a nuttiness to the coffee that made my taste buds sing. This is one cup that I certainly did not chug down. I made it last a good long time before that precious last drop was gone.
If you aren’t a huge fan of a strong coffee flavor, this is okay! They have many other options available to try. I had an iced coffee the other day (it was finally warm here in Minneapolis) and they made it good and sweet. Again, a special drink like this could not be downed in a hurry.
I encourage anyone looking for some of the best handcrafted coffee in the Twin Cities Metro to check it out! Even if you are not a big coffee drinker, I still encourage you to take your friends and grab a cup. The staff is very friendly and offer wonderful suggestions for anyone new to their shop. A cool mix of people hang out here and it’s always fun to start a conversation. You will not be disappointed.
