Becca Dilley / Heavy Table

A profile of Safari Pride Coffee in North Minneapolis, which uses beans from Cameroon. Apparently there’s an (expensive) workaround on Travail’s no reservations policy. The 2012 Charlie Awards were announced — PDF here (awards include a lifetime achievement award for Lenny Russo, pictured above). Praise-filled tasting notes for Leine’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter. An account of Zingerman’s co-founder Ari Weinzweig at the Wisconsin Cheese Originals Festival. And follow our local recipe pins over on our Pinterest board.
