Top 5 Roaster in the County: Vigilante Coffee



I know, Cheverly needs a coffee shop…but thankfully Vigilante has moved in down the road and they are a top 5 roaster in the country. Check out their news:

The folks at Vigilante Coffee Co. have a lot to celebrate these days: new cafe service style, new menu items, new location opening in College Park. Now they can add top-five roaster in the country to the list.

Chris Vigilante, CEO and “green buyer” of Vigilante Coffee Co., was rated as a top-five roaster at the 2017 U.S. Coffee Championship (USCC). The event was held as part of the Specialty Coffee Association’s Global Specialty Coffee Expo from April 21-23 in Seattle, Wash. The USCC started in 2002 and now has five different events: Barista Championship, Brewers Cup Championship, Cup Tasters Championship, Latte Art Throwdown and the Roaster Championship. Vigilante placed fifth in the U.S. Roaster Championship (USRC), which is designed “to highlight the art and craft of coffee roasting,” according to the USCC website. First-place finishers from all five categories will go on to world championships. The winner of the USRC, Mark Michaelson from Springdale, Ariz., will go on to the World Coffee Roasting Championship, held in Guangzhou, China, this December.

    I heard a rumor that someone was exploring putting a coffee shop in our neighborhood.

    Although I too LOVE coffee I would oppose anything commercial in this town. It would bring outsider’s in and the target for crime. Money does that….Cheverly has been a sweet, well loved community since the 30’s and it’s recent resurgence of new, young educated families has made it the “Comeback Kid”. Let’s keep it that way and continue to enjoy the lovely neighborhood it always has been. Just a long-timer’s 2 cents 🙂
