WHO WE ARE: The Shack Coffee Shop & Beer and Wine Garden is just that...a fun & eclectic coffee shop, beer and wine garden, and favorite local's hangout :) By day we serve up the best coffee and espresso drinks, along with delicious smoothies, frappes, and "bowls." During the afternoon and evening "The Beer Garden" comes alive outdoors with in-season LIVE MUSIC, 50 +/- Bottled and Draft MICRO-BREWS, CRAFT, IMPORT, AND DOMESTIC beers, as well as wines and bubbles by the glass.
LOCATION: 1148 Ocean Trail, Corolla NC - Just North of the Currituck Lighthouse on NC 12, beside The Corolla Post Office. We're right on the Corolla bike path, so take a ride or a stroll...and if you're in the 4x4 beaches, we're only a mile south of the end of the road.
WHAT WE DO: We brew the freshest, locally roasted coffee just the way you like it specializing in all coffee and espresso based drinks, hot or iced, blended or stirred, with flavors, sweeteners, just black, or any special way you like it... just ask! We also have a wide variety of frappes, smoothies, breakfast bowls, hot and iced teas, baked goods, pastries, sodas, waters, and snacks. If you need a cold beverage later in the day, come by "The Beer Garden" with your friends or family (or make some new friends here), sit under the stars, and enjoy getting away from it all.
WHERE OUR BEANS COME FROM: Morning View Coffee House and Roastery with Master Roaster Ashley Linnekin who handcrafts with love each individual batch in Morning View’s state of the art bean roaster located on the premises of our coffee shop & roastery allowing us to carefully monitor the entire roasting process and to adjust each roast to insure that each unique coffee reaches its optimal flavor. When viewing our roasting descriptions you will notice roasting terms such as City (light roast), Full City (medium roast), Vienna (dark, slight oil), and French (dark, oily). These are the roasts that we feel best exemplifies each coffee. City Roast: A very light brown roast. There are no oils pronounced on the bean and is pulled from the roaster after the first crack happens. This light roast creates a bright acidic cup and full flavored. Full City Roast: Name applied to the degree of roast of the coffee bean that is darker then a City roast. The beans roast past the first crack but are pulled before the second crack starts. There is a little oil pronounced on the bean creating sweetness and a medium acidity. Vienna Roast: Slightly darker then a Full City roast. Much more oil is pronounced on the bean. Pulled after hitting the second crack, making a less acidic cup and a full bodied bean. French Roast: Darker then a Vienna roast. This bean is pulled after the second crack has happened and a lot of oil is pronounced on the bean. Almost no acidity present and a more mellow and mild cup.
Whole bean and ground coffees available for purchase by the half or full lb.
