About 12100 Coffee and Communitas Our Coffee and Tea Vision - Great coffees have stories to tell. They come from beautiful, exciting and exotic places. They are grown, picked and processed in interesting and unique ways. All of this agriculture is accomplished by skilled artisans using a lifetime, often several lifetimes, of experience. We believe that these nuances receive their best chance to shine when they are offered in coffee roasted light to medium by, yet another, skilled artisan. This comparably light roasting allows the fruitiness of our beans to shine. While it's true that even the worst of beans can be roasted dark enough to give a bold, "roasty" flavor, only the best of beans possess the inherent depth to shine in more controlled roasting. This delivers the true flavor of the coffee and our friends at Black Cup Coffee truly excel in this area. The final group of artisans, our professionally trained baristas, offer the very best in coffee house experiences. Our Coffee standards are set by the classic definition of words like "Cappuccino" and "Latte." This leads to a few minor differences in our shop. First, we offer Lattes and Cappuccinos in 12 and 16 ounces, classically the proportions of steamed milk and coffee work best in theses sizes. Second, we steam our milk to 140 degrees as hotter milk produces a scalded taste that pairs poorly with coffee. Third, we offer lots of unique and interesting ways to brew your favorite coffee. Sound pretentious? We hope not and we won't treat you pretentiously, we promise. We want to serve great coffee - that means coffee you like. Like your milk screaming hot? Let us know - We can do that. Do you prefer a dark roast coffee? We stock traditional darker roasts as well. Really just love brewed, black coffee? We make that fresh all day. Just let us know your preferences. Are you interested in trying something new? Ask our friendly, knowledgable baristas what they are excited about this week. Are you more of a tea person? You'll love the more than 20 hand blended, loose leaf teas selected from the diverse stocks of our local partner Summit Spice and Tea. We brew our teas at the perfect temperature and steeping time to accompany their level of fermentation and offer tea by the cup, small pot or large, sharable pot. All our baristas are carefully trained by Summit Spice and Tea staff to assure you a truly excellent "cuppa." After all You, our community, are the final and most important part of our vision...
Our Community Vision - When 12-100 Coffee and Communitas was designed our driving focus was to build a space that was central to the south Anchorage community we exist within. We included meeting rooms and classrooms so that we could offer a space for our community to come together. Our rental rooms seat 25 and 40 and serve everything from business classes to art shows. Our free community-use classrooms seat 10 and 15 and are perfect for your study, game or discussion group. Our desire was to make sure that our community is well served by our facility. We look forward to continuing partnerships with you. We want 12-100 to be a welcoming environment to our fellow community members regardless of their background. This leads us to the only thing we avoid: We do our very best not to host events that might be divisive to our community. This means we don't host open political events or protest demonstrations. We might agree with you, we might disagree, it's really not a matter of political persuasion, we reserve all of our relational currency for the one issue we are passionate about...
Our Christian Faith 12-100 is owned, operated by and supported daily by Rabbit Creek Community Church. We built this space to have a chance to share in a conversation that includes the truth that God loves you, He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for you. He has a great and personal plan for your life. This means we are passionate about loving you like Jesus does. We think this translates to excellent customer service, passionate care for the farmers who provide our coffee, open arms to our brothers and sisters in Christ regardless of church affiliation, and genuine care for all without regard to faith or church affiliation. We host events for our sister churches who are working to care for our community without charge. We welcome children like our Savior does, even the loud ones, and we are passionate about creating an experience that includes rather than one that excludes. Don't share our faith? We promise, you won't feel awkward here. We're a coffee shop - one we think you're gonna love.
