Best Coffee: BlendIn Coffee Club
On the surface, BlendIn Coffee Club is just a cool coffee shop. The all-white interiors and cool contemporary design are fashionable and stylish, a great gathering place if you want to escape the world of corporate coffee. But look a little deeper, and BlendIn is so much more: It’s the kind of place you go when you want to learn about coffee, when you want to taste limited edition, rare coffees, and when you care about where your coffee comes from.
BlendIn specializes in coffee from “tree-to-cup.” Owner Weihong Zhang travels the world to source the highest quality single origin beans, shipping them directly to his Sugar Land facility, where they are roasted on site. Choose the coffee bean with the taste profile of your liking, select a brewing method—espresso, ibrik, AeroPress, V60, Mocha Pot, or Chemex—and then let the baristas do their magic. The resulting brew will be as perfect as their competition-worthy latte art.
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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
