Zingerman’s Coffee Company Serves First Espresso at Plaza Drive Shop

Ann Arbor, MI—Following a month after the recent move of their roaster to a new space at 3723 Plaza Drive, Zingerman’s Coffee Company reached a new milestone today with the opening of their shop, three doors down from Zingerman’s Bakehouse. “We doing a very soft rollout. There’s a lot to be done to get the space looking great, but we figured since the espresso machines are up and running, we might as well start serving,” said co-managing partner Steve Mangigian. The space features coffee brewed just a few feet from where it is roasted, and guests can watch the roasters do their work through a large picture window. Alongside a full line of espresso drinks, the shop serves coffee brewed in a number of ways. “We’ve got regular drip, French press, Chemex filtered, pour over, Vietnamese style, and Japanese ice drip,” notes shop manager Anya Pomykala. “And, you can select from up to 12 of our roasts which range in origin from Paupua New Guinea to east Africa to South and Central America.” The Coffee Company also caters to the coffee devotee with a large selection of whole beans and home brewing and barista equipment. Says Coffee Company founder Allen Leibowitz, “We have a lot of great tools and lot of knowledge to share. We want to be the source for coffee geeks in the area.”  Future plans include coffee classes and cuppings open to the public.
