SOMA NEWS



Welcome to our website! If you heart everything Soma you will definitely love www.iheartsoma.com. With this website, we have tried to capture the real essence of Soma's unique atmosphere. We hope to create a new medium to share our love of coffee and life. At Soma we seek to support the community at large as much as possible. Please check back frequently for news updates, community events and fun facts.



Featured Roaster: Big Shoulders Coffee Roasters


Its name deriving from the Carl Sandberg poem Chicago, Big Shoulders is a Chicago, IL based roaster that has focused on delivering fresh-roasted, no-nonsense artisan coffee since 2012. Prior to the business's inception, owner Tim Coonan spent 20 years building roasting skills initially taught by an independent roaster within the Hoosier state! Since opening their doors, Big Shoulders has quickly grown to become one of the Chicago caffeine staples.

We are proud to welcome their Lake Street Blend as our espresso feature. Comprised of beans originating from Ethiopia, Brazil, and Uganda, we are head-over-heals about the tastes presented in both milk-based and espresso-dominant coffee beverages. In addition, we will also be featuring their Ethiopian Sidamo Natural Guji as a limited-time drip-brewed option!

Soma Spotlight - Bloomington Breakaway 5K Run & Walk


As an independent and local business, we are committed to taking an active role in giving back to the community. Seasonally, we partner up with a local non-profit organization for our Spotlight program. In addition to providing a monetary donation, we make an effort to raise awareness toward their cause through advertising both within their shops and in social media.

Join us on Saturday, September 10th at 8:30 AM for the newest addition to our lineup of sponsored community events- The Bloomington Breakaway 5K Run & Walk. Starting directly outside our Kirkwood location, this year's course leads one through the heart of Indiana University's scenic campus; including past the Showalter Fountain and through the Sample Gates. Registration details can be found in the link above. The first 50 runners and the first 50 walkers to register will be awarded a Soma Pint glass ($10 value). Cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. There will also be prizes available for the top 3 finishers in each age group and the top 3 walk-finishers! All proceeds will directly benefit this season's Soma spotlight, Sycamore Land Trust.

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.
