“A viewer posted a message on my wall – “Have you been to the coffee shop with the DeLorean yet?”
No. And why hadn’t I? I’m a huge fan of the “Back to the Future” franchise, and to hear that a new coffee shop had opened inspired by the movie? I was so there.
I found that the Wormhole isn’t just a “Back to the Future” coffee bar – it’s a 1980’s pop culture explosion. Artifacts are everywhere – a “Top Gun” poster, “Star Wars” action figures, an Atari 100. But most important – the coffee is top notch. The owners recruited baristas from other local spots, and they’re brewing Metropolitan coffee among other local blends.” – Marcus Leshock, ChicagoNow

I would fly across the country to find coffee made from beans that weren’t roasted to charcoal. You can’t find an American or Mid-City roast anymore to save your life. They take all these great beans, each with its own flavor and subtly, and then burn them to the same bitter blandness.
I blame Starbucks.
Costco, west coast only I think, carries pure Columbian coffee beans that are lightly roasted. Unfortunately, the Tucson Costco dropped that brand and has only Starbucks. I had to bring bags of coffee beans from Orange County to stock up.
I am not a dedicated coffee drinker and so have never minded the coffee-flavored milk (lattes) Starbucks served.
I suppose I like coffee shops more than I like the coffee! It’s the feel of the place and being out and about :)
