What’s happening this summer?

  We  already have started the month of August, can you believe it? Time goes so fast and things are changing so quickly here in the Heritage District. The two construction projects  directly North of us are in full swing with one project set to open in October.  At Bergies we have had a few changes also this summer. Our garden is in a bit of disrepair as we deal with our temporary fence and construction issues .No worries though,  a lot of new ideas will be to implemented outside once we have a real wall on our North border.  In the...

Is There A Special Espresso Bean?

Posted by on 6:22 pm in Arizona, Coffee, Gilbert, Roasting, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of questions from customers about espresso.  They usually ask something along the lines of, “how do I know if it’s an espresso bean?”.  For various reasons, people want to get what they believe is a special bean used just for espresso. Here’s the thing, there is no such thing as an espresso bean.  The truth is, any bean can be used to make espresso.  The idea that an “espresso bean” exists is really nothing more than a misnomer. Basically, espresso is more of a...

Giving Back Through Your Coffee Purchase

A few years ago, Linda, Cristian and I had the opportunity to host members of the Ugandan Orphans Children’s Choir. We were busy and grumpy about having to give up our weekend, but these kids needed a place to stay.  It was the Super Bowl weekend and  they were more interested in watching the Dennis the Menace movie with my wife than the game of the  year with me. Needless to say it turned out to be a fabulous weekend and we were blessed by the experience. As a result, our family connected with Childcare Worldwide, an organization that...

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Just a quick note to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. It’s hard to believe it’s the holiday season again.  We are taking time to reflect on how thankful we are for so many abundant blessings in our lives.  A huge part of our blessings are directly related to this funky little place we call Bergies Coffee Roast House. When we opened almost seven years ago we never could have imagined what was in store for us.  Not only have we learned so much about the coffee business, roasting, running a small business, being a part of...

Summer is over, Time to heat up your Coffee

Posted by on 5:51 pm in Coffee, Roasting, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Now that summer is over and the weather is cooling down, it’s time to start shelving those cold coffee drinks.  Instead, the time to has come to resume drinking your favorite hot coffee.  There’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee with the winter season approaching. In the morning, I like to have a nice medium to light roast coffee along with my breakfast.  It’s a great compliment to the early morning routine.  I typically like a good Latin American bean, such as Nicaraguan or Costa Rican.  It’s a good way to get a...

Coffee on the Road

  We are at that time of the year when there  is just one last holiday left before fall makes  its appearance, and the cold of winter will  quickly be the topic of our conversations.   This holiday for us is Labor Day, and like  most people I know, we will spend a good  part of our time sitting behind the wheel,  driving long hours to enjoy the most of our last celebration of  the summer. If you are like me, then you too, enjoy a good cup of coffee on the road, pouring steaming hot from a thermos, and having the heady aroma of...

Local Road Trip

Local Road Trip

A few weeks ago Linda & I decided we needed to take a short road trip, a day trip actually. Everyone knows that downtown Gilbert is where our heart is but we had heard so many outstanding reviews about the Musical Instrument Museum better known as “MIM” that we had to check it out. It doesn’t hurt that MIM has an award winning restaurant Cafe` Allegro. FYI our road trips are usually about great food! The museum is overwhelming, in a positive way. Make sure you have the better part of the day to soak up the experience....
