On The Map

December 27th, 2011


Zagat, publisher of the highly popular restaurant guide, has named us one of the "10 Coolest Independent Coffee Shops" in the US! According to an article published on their website this week:

Coffee shops have often been associated with poets, activists, college students and any artistic type looking for a caffeinated connection. And, given that the patron saint of Firestorm is writer and feminist Voltairine de Cleyre, this stereotype fits perfectly with this café in Asheville, NC, and not in a bad way. The cafe opened in 2005 with the goal to be worker-owned, and for the past six years, they have achieved that goal while also using Counter Culture Coffee to make a mean cup of joe.

We're honored to make the list, along with coffee shops from Portland, Maine; New York City (Brooklyn); Seattle; Austin, Texas; Denver; San Francisco; Ohio; Portland, Oregon and Chicago!
