When we lived in Atlanta a friend  regularly shared coffee that he roasted in his back yard. It was so much better than the stuff that might have been sitting in the grocers warehouse for months. I got spoiled! Moving home I really missed the taste of  fresh roasted coffee. I kept hearing about a local roaster here in Tallahassee but it took a few months to find them.

Lucky Goat has been working out of a food distributors warehouse off the Parkway. They were not easy to find and were not really set up to deal with the one or two pound buyer. But they put out a great product and were worth the hassle. Bonus was they carried both of my favorite Coffees- Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and Harar.

The great news is they just opened up a coffee shop!

It’s in a retail strip off Capital Circle near Park Avenue. You still have to hunt for it…  no sign yet. I’m sure one will be up soon.

It's just st down from Capt Pete's Gyros...

Look for the coffee bags a few doors down from Capt Pete’s Gyros…


They have a great selection of coffee… several blends, flavored and single bean varieties. And their staff knows their stuff!

They have a nice espresso machne and  did a great job on my cappuchino!

Got to love the two roasters in the back… they had just finished a batch of Guatemalan and the smell was awesome!


I left with a pound of Yirgacheffe and Tanzanian Peaberry.

Coffee runs $10 to $15 a pound.

Right now they are running a special- 2lbs of coffee and a Cappuchino for $20

Go find them at:
