Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company

At The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company, we love coffee, but we also like a good beer. Our Midtown location has both on draft and sometimes we mix them together. That drink is called a 50/50, half beer/half coffee and it is one of our most popular drinks.
Another coffee/beer collaboration we love is our annual release with Griffin Claw of the Flying Buffalo Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Coffee Stout. It is quite a mouthful to say and an even bigger mouthful on the palate.
Griffin Claw brews an Imperial Stout and we add one of our Farmer Direct coffees to it for a long rest in bourbon barrels. That annual release comes every November and this year the exclusive release will be this Tuesday, November 14th at our Midtown café and at the Griffin Claw brewery.
The coffee we chose this year is a Perla Negra from our friends at Las Lajas farm in Costa Rica. Las Lajas is known for super sweet, honey process and natural coffees grown on their organic farm. We picked this coffee for its fruit-forward flavor and it integrates wonderfully into the Flying Buffalo Imperial Stout. This coffee is one to savor and cellaring it will only improve its flavor.
Join us in Midtown for the much-anticipated release of this beer. It will be released at the brewery the same day but we open at 7am so we'll have the world exclusive, at least for a few hours. We will also have a special 50/50 made with cold brew from Las Lajas so if you love this coffee as much as we do you'll be in double coffee nirvana.
