Coffee & Wine

Coffee is a very central part of the Cafe Brio experience.  We now serve coffees from Flying Goat Coffee in Healdsburg, CA.  Their sklled coffee buyers and roasters are a good match for the discriminating tastes of our customers and their nearby training facility allows ongoing training of our baristas, who put a high level of craftsmanship into their drinks.  We are committed to serving deeply satisfying and exceptional coffee.  

Our Wine list showcases both French and Humboldt County wines.  We look for wines that demonsrate an understanding of traditional artisanal styles.  The French traditional style, which we champion, features wines of depth and finesse, low alcohol, subtle, delicate aromas and remarkable flavors, with a deep connection to the soils and microclimates in which they are produced.  We list several local wines made from Humboldt county grapes that meet our quality and terroir standards.  Our local wine selection has recently expanded as we find such wines, which are frequently in limited supply.
