Featured Roaster: Bow Truss Coffee Roasters

We are now featuring a new roaster! Bow Truss is a collective of veteran coffee professionals. Their coffees are curated and roasted in their roasting house in Lakeview, Chicago. Bow Truss is big enough to buy the best beans out there, but small enough to roast on demand. They roast to order, ensuring that the beans are always as fresh as humanly possible. We are currently featuring their Foundation Espresso. Toffee and caramel notes lay heavy on the tongue with a note of lime zest lingering in the clean finish. Won 3rd place in the America’s Best Espresso Competition at Chicago Coffee Fest 2013. Cup Profile: Syrupy, Lime Zest, Caramel. Stop in and try it out! For more information, check out their website.

Soma Spotlight - PRIDE


This month we are proud to sponsor PRIDE. Through community-based events and services, Bloomington PRIDE celebrates queer arts, creates safe and inclusive spaces, and challenges stereotypes to enrich LGBTQA community culture. The PRIDE Film Festival will be January 29-31, at Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington. PRIDE originated as a Bloomington, IN film festival exploring a wide variety of issues and situations involving the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. PRIDE programs a variety of live performance, lecture, public participation events and films that express a wide range of viewpoints and feature many different personality types and situations, advocating community-wide attitudes of awareness, acceptance and appreciation of diversity. The goal of the festival is to educate and strengthen the local community and celebrate artistic talent and achievement. Find out more on their website.

Secret Smoothies


Wanna shake things up a bit? Try one of our off menu smoothies! Stop by for a Jolly Rancher (apple juice, melons and strawberries), Howler Monkey (Espresso, chocolate, peanut butter, bananas, and your choice of milk) or The Colin (a twist on the Banana Colada- with peanut butter and Source of Life)! Impress your friends and your taste buds.


Updated Coffee Menu


As the coffee growing and harvesting seasons change in different regions of the world, so do our available roasts. Some previously offered roasts will no longer be, and some unfamiliar ones may start to show up. A fully edited coffee menu will be updated on this site to help for those who buy beans and for those interested in knowing what might be offered as a daily drip coffee rotation. As always, we love to hear feedback about your favorite or least-favorite roasts!

Have a Tea Party!


You've been asking for it, and finally we've got it: bulk loose-leaf tea! All 32 types of our tea are now available in quarter, half, or one pound bags (or bring in your own container to fill for a small discount). We'll try to keep them all stocked well, but if you know you want a large amount, please give us a little heads up.
