"Adding butter to coffee? Thanks, but I finish fine French food in butter, but not a gorgeous Kenyan cup." -- Ryan Hall, co-owner of Figure 8 Coffee Purveyors
"Small batch, old-timey aprons, old-timey facial hair, the almond milk craze, vinyl music only, taxidermy in coffeehouses, 'organic,' 'passive organic,' quotation marks and hyphens, artisanally hand-hewn-but-now-digital graphics, local custom ceramics, single origin, single farms, single baristas, snotty customer service, good customer service, no Wi-Fi, lighter-than-thou roasting, more indie than thou, selling out, kraft-paper coffee bags, DIY anything coffee, bottled brew, cold brew, hot brew, 'extraction yield,' pour-over coffee, craft affogatos, scoffing at prices, charging too much, smiling and saying thank you, taking coffee (and yourself) too seriously." -- Jeremy Tooker, Four Barrel Coffee
