Slow by Slow's 'Specialty Coffee Roasters in America' Map 

In December, the Boise slow-pour coffee shop commissioned local cartographic company Mitchell Geography to help share their expertise.

Unlike many of the new craft coffee shops popping up in Boise—think Form & Function, Neckar and Caffeina—Slow by Slow on Eighth Street doesn't roast its own beans. Instead, the shop's staff carefully curate its ever-changing menu to include top-quality roasts from Boise and beyond. Last month, they commissioned local cartographic company Mitchell Geography to help share their expertise. The result was a 13-by-19-inch map, dubbed "Specialty Coffee Roasters in America," which pinpoints Slow by Slow's favorite craft roasters across the country, from Lofty Coffee Company in San Diego to Speckled Ax Coffee Roasters in Portland, Maine. Apart from Hawaii and Alaska being conspicuously missing (shoutout to Lava Java and MauiGrown Coffee, two of our favorite roasters on Maui), the map is an extensive guide to the companies Slow by Slow thinks are "contributing modern specialty coffee roasting techniques to their communities" nationwide—and it's a must-have for anyone who wants to make 2019 the year of the bean.
