Hey, friends! As I write this, we’re about a month and half (depending on where you live) into the 2020 quarantine, and while I’ve tiptoed around travel-related topics as of late, I have been thinking a lot about all the small businesses that make up our favorite towns and cities. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen me write about this a few times, but it is so important to keep supporting the shops and eateries we love right now if we want these places to still be around when things go back to normal. Whether that means buying merchandise online, grabbing no-contact takeout once in a while, or even purchasing gift cards for service-based businesses to use at a later date, there are so many ways to help keep our neighbors afloat from the safety of our own homes.

Today, I’m spotlighting one of my favorite Detroit coffee spots, New Order Coffee Roasters! A refreshing combination of bright/happy/colorful/Instagram-worthy branding and “they really know what they’re doing” coffee expertise, New Order opened a few years ago in midtown and recently expanded to add a second location in Royal Oak. This past week, we ordered some Nicaragua and Brazil beans to brew at home, and as soon as I opened up that package, I found myself reminiscing about the magic behind the coffee at this fun roastery.

The thing I love most about New Order is that it appeals to such a wide variety of coffee tastes. Want a drinkable treat that tastes just like your favorite childhood cereal? New Order's Cereal Milk Latte (often available in seasonal flavors) is where the party is AT. Or maybe you’re working on expanding your palate and want to know more about the flavor profiles of different beans? The folks at New Order will not only point you in the right direction, they’ll also take you on a coffee development journey during their free monthly classes (on pause during quarantine, of course)! During these classes, you’ll gather around an in-house coffee expert to learn about the origins of select beans, their flavor notes, differences in roast levels, and preferred preparation methods. In-depth consultations are also available by appointment, so you can take that knowledge even further and work with a New Order expert to customize the perfect take-home roast for you.

While in-store interactions are on hold for the time being, New Order’s online shop is up and running, so you can grab a few bags of beans (whole or ground to your preference), K-Cup pods (gotta love that convenience factor!), and even brewing equipment to create an awesome, at-home coffee experience. According to New Order’s website, orders currently ship out on Mondays and Thursdays, and I got mine super-fast (the coffee was on my porch within two days of ordering, and the beans were roasted on the day they were sent out).

New Order also offers fun, colorful serveware and giftables that are perfect for birthdays, Mother’s or Father’s Day, “just-because presents,” or to keep and use yourself! Of course, the most important part of drinking coffee is the coffee itself, but there's something special about a cute mug, amirite? ;)
