Waking up in Richmond to Catahoula Coffee

on October 7, 2011

Coffee fanatics from around the Bay Area have been requesting Richmond’s Catahoula Coffee since the shop’s opening in 2008. The clientele remains loyal, but owner “Timber” Manhart has begun to feel the strain of rising coffee bean prices while running a small business in Richmond’s North & East neighborhood.

    You can pay less for a cup of coffee, but when you get your coffee from Catahoula, it’s a whole other world – never before knew that not all coffee is (even a little bit) bitter. Now, I’m spoiled. Their coffee is so smooth and rich, I swear you could eat it with a spoon! Ok, yes, I’m a huge fan, but I speak the truth – if you haven’t even been there, try it. You’ll be glad you did!

    I carry Catahoula Coffee back to Japan when I’m in Richmond to see my folks. One of the first and last places I go when I’m there. A couple of months ago I walked in with blurry eyes and a foggy, jetlagged brain, and was greeted with, “We’re all here and we’ve got coffee!”
