I just wanted to thank the guys at the Java House in Iowa City for letting me interrupt their somewhat busy afternoon last Saturday with my questions and specific requests. While they claimed they couldn't share the roaster's name, everything was pretty good. Even the slightly over-extracted "Mezzanotte" espresso shot was okay considering. The trad capp was better than average at busy shops. I also bought some of their Bolivian to try at home.
They've also got a nice pour over setup. Anyone looking to add one might take a look.
Overall, you've got a good place and I look forward to visiting you guys again.
Thanks for the post. I just recently left the Java House after 5 years of service to them, to work in Paris at Coutume Cafe. I sure do miss the ease of that pour over bar thats for sure... Glad you liked it and I hope some of the baristas I got to join BX will see this post and appreciate your comments!
