Rocket Bean Roastery

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Rocket Bean Roastery

A new cult spot in Riga: a coffee-bean roastery, coffee shop, and café in one. This place caters to people for whom coffee is more than just a cappuccino or frappuccino topped with a cap of foam or whipped cream; this would also include people who yearn for more than just sausage with a side of buckwheat for lunch. If you know what the modifiers “single-origin”, “single-region” and “single-estate” mean, you'll feel like a fish in water here. If you don't know what they mean, here you can find out how  different growing regions and varieties of coffee beans affect the quality and flavour of your cup of joe. Various brewing methods (AeroPress, Chemex, etc.) are also offered, exponentially increasing the range of emotions one can experience depending on the type of prepared coffee one chooses to consume. Another interesting feature here is the coffee bean roasting itself – usually a behind-the-scenes process, here it is revealed for everyone to see. With such high-caliber coffee, the food must also be up to par, as evidenced in abundance by the culinary prowess of Artūrs Taškāns, head-chef at the Rocket Bean Roastery. Taškāns is known as a trail-blazer – no one knows what to expect on his daily menu, but everyone knows that whatever it is, it will be good.

The look of Rocket Bean Roastery is also worth noting. In renovating the first floor of this building on Miera Street, heretofore unknown assets were revealed – the structure's inner seams and linings. By knocking down a couple of walls and putting fresh and luminous colours to use, an airy and bright space has been created. The resulting atmosphere is authentically old – with a shot of industrial design-chicness.
