We have been hooked on primo coffee beans roasted locally (well, in The Woodlands) ever since last summer, when we saw a supper show at Dosey Doe Coffee House (25911 I-45 North, The Woodlands) starring songwriter Jimmy Webb.
The show was intimate, the venue cozy, the food a nice blend of down-home and nouvelle...but the coffee. We were so impressed, we bought a bag to take home. As it turned out, we had a summer-long commute to The Woodlands and its environs, allowing us to pop back in to Dosey Doe's reconstituted Kentucky barn to stock up on its rich Roastmaster Blend, Northern Italian Espresso, Dinner Bell, and aptly named More Please.
We got other friends hooked, and when our commute ended, we carpooled with them to North Egypt to stock up. DD offers its prized beans on eBay too, but the cost is a wee bit prohibitive.
On to our recent discovery. At a recent stop at Texas Art Supply on Voss, we found rows of bags of Dosey Doe coffees - marked half-price, to boot. We grabbed as many pounds as we could and ran to the counter with them tucked under our arms like Woody Allen making off with Soon-Yi. "Throw in a little art gum and some linseed oil while you're at it," we barked.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
