Coeur Coffeehouse hosts latte throwdown

Mike Garrison first noticed the art deco building with the corner door on a drive to Spokane Art Supply.

He didn’t have plans for a business, but the space somehow convinced him that he needed to open Coeur Coffeehouse. Garrison, who grew up in Coeur d’Alene, settled on plans to sell coffee from Portland’s Stumptown Coffee Roasters while remodeling and repairs were finished at 701 N. Monroe St.

Garrison wanted the most ethically sourced coffee he could find and liked Stumptown’s commitment to forging relationships with coffee growers and paying higher than fair-trade prices.

Coeur Coffeehouse uses local milk from Spokane’s Family Farm and baristas make syrups from scratch. In addition to espresso, Coeur Coffeehouse offers popular slow-brewing methods, including Chemex and Aeropress. Stumptown Coffee is sold by the pound.

Garrison and the Coeur Coffeehouse crew will host the latest round of the latte art and brewing competition for local baristas Thursday. Thursday Night Throwdown: Inland Northwest starts at 7 p.m. Local baristas are invited and must register by 6 p.m. Coffee lovers can come taste the results of the battle.

Coeur Coffeehouse is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
