  1. I can’t help but like this guy even though I prefer Blue Bottle and Philz coffee myself (and I’m still pretty livid that they opened up a location so close to my favorite dive cafe/drawing spot, Muddy Waters).

    It’s always nice seeing people enjoying what they do and I’ll happily give Four Barrel another shot based solely on this dude’s obvious love for roasting.
