Native Main Liners Rich and Mindyjane Berman introduced Pour Richard’s Coffee Company to Devon late, last year, reinventing the concept of the standard coffee shop. Situated across Lancaster Avenue from Whole Foods Devon, the small batch, third wave coffee cafe features a “unique approach to coffee,” with Rich house-roasting twelve single origin coffees for your sipping pleasure.
Spending years perfecting roast recipes before unveiling a retail space, the Bermans are committed to the highest quality of coffee, which means roasting coffee every day, not allowing a blend to sit on the shelf for more than 10 days, etc. Being eco-conscious is also important to the coffee-slinging duo, who make use of a Euro-sourced green roaster, which they reveal, “produces the highest efficiency stats currently available.”
Additionally, coffee education ranks high within Pour Richard’s mission. Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1–3 p.m., experience a public cupping, organized weekly to expose and teach interested patrons about the many characteristics of a well-roasted coffee bean. After-hours events are also on the agenda for the new coffee company, such as private cuppings or pairing events, where they’ll couple java with cheeses, beers, chocolates, milks and cuisine.
In addition to serious cups of coffee, score espresso drinks crafted from the house Synesso Cyncra espresso machine, French pastries baked daily, savory quiche, and sandwiches and salads provided by the Wayne’s Tredici Italian Market. Other beverages like loose leaf teas, hot cocoa, and Italian sodas are available for non-coffee drinkers.
