Rooster's Crow Coffee Roastery

8402 Whitesburg Dr. Building h, Huntsville, AL 35802

Score: 98

Rooster's Crow Coffee Roastery is tucked away, but it's a cool find.

They see coffee as a gift and cater to all flavor palates.

From light to dark, they source their beans from 18 different farms from all over the world -- and counting.

At this location for 2 and a half years, and in the business for 5, they are woven into the community -- roasting for local restaurants and selling wholesale.

They also sell antique coffee grinders in mint condition.

If you're feeling peckish, they have in-house made scones and cinnamon rolls along with goodies from other local businesses.

With the heat we've been having, you may want a cooler treat. Why not go further than iced coffee and enjoy a popsicle made with their own coffee beans from Ethiopia.

This place has a lot of respect for coffee -- they even have two coffee plants in the store!
