Reno, Nevada may seem well removed from coffee epicentres on the west coast. But don’t tell that to Hub Coffee Roasters owner Mark Trujillo.

He’s plugged in to many of the important players in Portland and San Francisco as well as tiny outliers in places like Lander, Wyoming. Indeed, he often collaborates with other “smaller fry” to acquire world-class crops of direct-trade beans. In the relatively small world of so-called third-wave coffee, it seems everyone knows everyone else.

Mark’s crew is also doing a bang-up job roasting and precisely brewing and pulling carefully-weighed shots at his two coffee houses, both old brick garages in MidTown Reno. And he obviously has a great nose, describing a single-origin espresso as having notes of a just slightly singed crust on a pumpkin pie. Me, I’m just happy to sip and chill.
