North Lamar bean brewers expand downtown

Coffee from Houndstooth Downtown

The meticulous North Lamar shot-pullers behind Houndstooth just moved into the base of the Frost Tower -- just two blocks away from rival caffeine-dealer Caffe Medici... Dun-Dun-DUN!!! HC's upping the ante from the get-go with new roasters like Kansas's PT's and Portland's Coava, plus they've installed a pecan-slab experimental coffee bar where they'll be doing single-origin siphon brewing -- a method in which water boils up through a filter, mixes with the coffee, then trickles back into the carafe, resulting in a smoother cup of coffee with a tea-like consistency.
