Northern Coffeeworks Celebrates Their 1 Year Anniversary

And just like that, it's already been a year since Northern Coffeeworks opened at 1027 S Washington Avenue. I recently met with their General Manager, George Hadfield, who demonstrated his fierce latte art skills as well as filled me in on the business.

Owner Josh Klauck is also the proprietor of Angry Catfish Bicycle + Coffee Bar, which explains the bike hanging on the back wall.

They source products and ingredients locally when at all possible. In addition to coffee, tea, wine, beer, cider, switchel and kombucha (drink menu), you'll find a tempting selection of pastries, waffles, sandwiches and other freshly prepared items (food menu).
