What Makes It "Strong": Reverie, owned by area sisters Megan and Francesca Denaut, uses local roasted coffee beans from Bear Mountain Coffee Roasters in Mahopac. A new batch is delivered weekly ensuring the freshest quality possible.
The caffe also uses a high-quality water purification system that, along with the fresh coffee beans, gives a smooth, tasty cup of joe. There are tons of coffee options here. Among the choices at the moment: Hearts Desire, a blend of chocolate, coconut and a hint of cinnamon.
Customers will also find small batches of cold brew bottled in 16-ounce, 32-ounce and half gallon jugs with flavors such as salted caramel. (The flavor is infused with the beans at roasting so there's no added sugar, explained Megan.)
Customers will also find health conscious fresh food made to order which accommodates all types of dietary needs from gluten-free to vegan. Local products are used on as much as possible. There's also local music on Saturday nights.
