Julie and TJ Fairchild started Commonplace in 2003, but their desire to be a part of coffee started in the mid-90’s… We both had our start in coffee at Cup a Joe in Raleigh, North Carolina. We worked in coffee shops through undergrad and grad school. We fell in love with coffee in college. Not just coffee but the coffee shop culture: a place like no other, no rush to leave, quiet time to read, study, reflect, or time to socialize with others, meet new people – it opened our world. As we traveled, (this is where those VW buses come in) we always looked for local coffee shops, but we didn’t always find places that we felt did a good job of making good coffee and providing the atmosphere we envisioned. We had an understanding of what we loved about coffee culture and wanted to create it elsewhere. We knew we never wanted to leave coffee – it had become so much a part of who we were as individuals and as a couple. Commonplace was born out of a desire to love coffee and love people. We fell in love with coffee as much as we loved serving it to people. We see coffee as a way to build community; as such, we see Commonplace as a community builder – a way to care for people through making beautiful coffees in neighborhood spaces.

    Trying Commonplace Coffee Finca Los Lesquines Honduras Honey processed. Really enjoying this. Always been a fan of honey processed. Taste the nuttiness first then the chocolate. Very good medium body and nice lingering mouth feel. Really starting to enjoy all the Honduran coffees I have been trying. Will definitely be picking this up again.

    Tried Commonplace Coffee Nicaraguan Natural processed Yellow Catuai coffee this morning. I got the beans out of the freezer. (yes, you can freeze beans but I wouldn't recommend freezing ground coffee) and gave this coffee a long overdue go. I think I'm gonna add this one to my favorite list. It was a nice medium roast, with a full but soft body, not overpowering at all. I could taste the cherry touched by a smooth sweet finish. The natural processing, gaves it that pleasant sweet acidity. I would highly recommend giving this one a try!

    Finally made it through my stash to get to Commonplace Coffee Fabio Caballero washed Honduran. This was a limited release for the company's anniversary. It was in collaboration (sourced) with Dynamic Coffee. If I would have known it was going to be this good I would have picked up more bags. It is a light to medium roast, very smooth, silky body and sweet. I mean naturally sweet. You can taste the honey notes pretty clearly. My daughter tried it and said she could also pickup, a little fainter, the rosewater. If it comes up again I would highly reckons grabbing a bag.

    Brewed up Commonplace Teojomulco washed Mexican this morning. A rich, slightly sweet, very milk chocolate medium body coffee. Very good everyday coffee. I recommend it for medium roast lovers.

    Had the Soren's Project which is a nice Colombian blend. Good full body, a little positive tartness, with some slight sweetness.
