St. Louis native Peter Cohen set out to create a bold coffee with no bitter aftertaste. He sold his creation, Redeye Roast, to customers at the Clayton Farmers’ Market, eventually quitting his corporate job to build his coffee company. Today, Redeye is Stringbean’s signature blend, but the company sells a variety of single-origin coffees, too. Brazilian Estate is a rich, creamy roast with a chocolate finish that tastes great as espresso. For a truly uncommon brew there’s Malawi Peaberry—peaberry accounting for just 5 percent of all coffee beans harvested, Cohen reports—with its stone fruit taste. “I’m the only one in St. Louis roasting this,” says Cohen, who uses a non-computerized roaster, perfecting each batch by hand. “Before COVID, we held open houses on the first Saturday of each month with kombucha, cheese-making, yoga, and discussions. Hopefully we can bring them back.” Read More
