I cannot comment on the quality of Cappulido Coffee, the Denton-based seller of beans that "believes that a fair wage, a quality bean, and a choice roasting technique make for the finest cup of coffee." I can, however, tell you that, far as I know, it's the only cup of joe currently available on the mail-order market from the guitarist in Midlake -- ya know, Eric Pulido -- which has to count for something, especially if you like your coffee flavored Indie-Rock. It's a subscription service, with a bag of beans dropping on your doorstep 'round the end of every month. --Robert Wilonsky
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
