Fernwood Coffee was established in 2007 after we took over The Parsonage Cafe. Intrigued by the circa 1930’s German coffee roaster sitting behind the cafe’s counter, we enrolled in world-renowned roasting courses, workshops, and trade shows everywhere from Idaho, to California, to Seattle; traveled extensively; apprenticed with highly regarded baristas and roasters; and researched exhaustively to roast, brew, and pull the finest coffee possible. Since then, a lot’s happened: we purchased a much more modern roaster, briefly lived in the apartment suite above our cafe, traveled to and judged a number of international barista competitions, trained world class baristas, and won some awards. We’ve worked hard to make our cafe and roastery a cultural staple in Fernwood.
For our cafe, we source ingredients from local farmers, butchers, fishmongers, and bakers to provide a menu that’s fresh, reasonable, and local. Classic yet contemporary, refined yet unpretentious, our seasonal menu is developed with the same degree of care, attention, and experimentation that goes into our award winning espresso and filtered coffees.
