Have you ever been to Starbucks? If you have, then you must have noticed the manufactured structure, pretentious smiles from barristas and the mediocre coffee then. Starbucks, surprisingly, is not the only coffee shop like that. Maryland is bursting with pseudo-adequate coffee shops, dotted across county lines, serving coffee without a ‘hello’, ‘thank you’ or a ‘have a nice day.
‘ In spite of the odds, Dublin Roasters is a breath of fresh air for the burgeoning coffee industry. The barristas, and even the owner Serina Roy, always has a genuine smile for each of her customers plus her coffee is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Her global outlook on quality coffee beans underscores the company mantra: Savoring the world one bean at a time!
It’s rather difficult to find high quality, freshly roasted, ORGANIC, fair traded coffee. I seriously tried to look for a coffee shop like that and can fully promulgate that Dublin Roasters is the only one of its kind. Serina Roy, Dublin Roasters Owner, is highly trained in the art of coffee making.
For more than fifteen years, she’s been dedicating her heart and soul into the art of coffee roasting. In fact, she roasts coffee, on the spot, for all of her coffee patrons. Fresh, aromatic coffee is within your reach if you visit Dublin Roasters.
Serina Roy says “The taste and freshness of this coffee is second to none. I roast my coffee in small batches, and only per order. This process ensures quality and customer satisfaction. That is the mission of this company.”
Dublin Roasters carries a roster of singular coffee blends, decadent teas, and rustic gifts that help people in Guatemala make a standard of living. If you are a coffee-addict, then you may have a jubilant time trying out their new coffee concoctions–for free.
Dublin Roasters is the only coffee shop that lets you try coffee, FOR FREE. Forget wine tastings, nix the grapes for the coffee beans. My favorite blend, so far, is the red velvet cake and the Rain forest mix. Serina and her team of coffee artists, cook up new coffee recipes on a weekly basis.
You never know what to expect when you walk in through Dublin Roasters doors. If you visit on the weekends you may also be able to pair Grashoff’s Belgian Chocolate spreads with Dublin Roasters Organic Coffee blends. Yum! Chocolate and coffee tastings, for free.
What’s also great about Dublin Roasters is that they have ways for you to work off that caffeine high from drinking one too many lattes. Dublin Roasters plans charitable events on a bi-weekly basis ranging from Cancer Awareness to Yoga classes. Just talk to Serina when you get the chance and she’ll inform you with a genuine smile on her face.
You know what’s also contingent to a spectacular coffee house experience? Music!
Come by twice a week on selected nights and you’ll be able to mingle, listen and sing along to great local Frederick bands and poets in the area. It’s one of a few places that lets you sing your heart out and speak your mind, without a nay-sayer in the house. A home away from home, if you will.
Music, coffee, charity and smiles. It’s the perfect recipe to a great coffee shop experience that Starbucks and other chain-related coffee shops lack. Dublin Roasters is the embodiment of acceptance. You will feel like you belong once you enter through their decorated doors.
Once you walk in, drink in the coffee aroma and soak in the eclectic art ranging from faux fishies swimming on a wall and humanitarian gifts adorning crowded walls, take a closer look at your cup of coffee you order. You may notice something different.
Light brown curly cues, emerging into the middle of your latte forming radiant flowers, delicate hearts and embellished embroideries only Dublin Roasters could even imagine. Dublin Roasters is the only coffee shop I’ve ever seen that does unusually perfect latte art.
The funny thing is they do the latte art just to make you happy, they really don’t expect anything else from you. It’s refreshing to know that there are businesses out there that put you, the consumer, FIRST.
