Thrifty Thursday: Ride The Rapid to Ferris Coffee and Nut Company

Ferris Coffee Pour Over

For many, coffee is considered a morning staple. But at Ferris Coffee and Nut Co., the owners and employees know that coffee is more than just a beverage, it’s an experience.

Ferris Coffee and Nut Company was established in Michigan in 1924. For nearly 100 years, they’ve been brewing specialty coffee and gourmet nuts. Their inventory boasts more than 150 varieties of specialty coffees, gourmet roasted nuts, chocolates, candies and trail mixes. Ferris works to provide the community with the finest plant-grown products, allowing coffee lovers to experience new flavors from all around the world.

Baristas at Ferris say the best way to experience their coffee is with their pour over brews, where hot water is poured over coffee grounds to create one cup of coffee. If you’ve never tried a pour-over, your taste buds are missing out. While this is a lengthier process of making coffee, it brings out more flavor from the coffee grounds so each cup of coffee will taste slightly different from the last.
