I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake.Lewis Black
I’ve been to Camber Coffee a few times now. The first time was with my wife while we were shopping downtown. We were both blown away by the varieties of coffee to choose from for our pour-over. The amazing ambiance and delicious coffee aroma kept us there while we sipped until empty. It was also the perfect spot for a business meeting my next time visiting. Most recently I stopped by for a gracious donation, one of which is available as our Photo Contest prize now – get entered and get a cup of deliciousness on us!
