OC Hotspot American Classic Coffee Company
You’ll never guess what we learned about coffee straight from the owner of the new Orange County coffee company.
Today’s Orange County Hot Spot is American Classic Coffee Company.
We met with the owner, local coffee entrepreneur, Spencer Verhines, to find out about his Foothill Ranch based business. He selects the beans, creates blends, roasts, packages, and delivers it all locally. The roast date is on the package so you can see how fresh it is.
And as a coffee expert, Spence shared something with us that we had never heard before…check out the video!!
The Yosemite and the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe are our favorites. The coffee is very smooth with no bitter aftertaste, and the smell….well the smell is everything!!
We were surprised when we asked Spencer “What is one thing about coffee that we might not know?” His answer explained that most people think that darker roasts contain more caffeine, but it is actually just the opposite, If you want more caffeine go with a lighter roast. What?!!! That certainly will change our choice of coffee daily.
You can order the coffee on their website, and if you are local, it will be hand delivered, so you can save on shipping. The coffee would make great gifts for the holidays for clients or family and friends. And you would be supporting a local business, and it is a Veteran Owned business!! Thank you for your service and your coffee, Spencer Verhines!
