Woke up early on a spring morning to go exploring into the wares and warehouses of Utopian Coffee. Roaster Landon Porter and I met for some coffees to chat about their new building, their brews, and their website. We explored through their roastery, even climbing some sketchy stairs for rooftop access. After some quick selfies and snapchats we headed back to my apartment for some really great shots for their new homebrewing campaign.

 The old photography studio has become a coffee roaster.
