The Chosen Bean: Small-Batch Coffee Roaster in Coral Springs

The Chosen Bean is a coffee-roasting company based in Coral Springs.
Moshe Ruza has lived a number of lifetimes: He helped run his family's three-generation high-fashion accessory business in New York City, owned a resort in the Caribbean for close to a decade, and today is the founder of his own coffee-roasting company.

Ruza founded the Chosen Bean five years ago, a small-batch coffee-roasting operation based out of his Coral Springs home. At the time, Ruza was on a search for the perfect cup of coffee. He quickly learned that if he wanted fresh coffee, he would have to make it himself.

Boca Raton resident Brandon Wells has a favorite saying: "drink deeply."

It's a fitting philosophy for the man who stands as the owner and founder of one of Palm Beach County's specialty coffee roasting companies. For Wells, "drink deeply" isn't a slogan, however. It's simply a way of life.

In every circle of friends, there's one brew snob who wouldn't touch a Starbucks cup with a ten-foot pole, one coffee fiend who's better at detecting notes of Arabica terroir than balancing a checkbook, one caffeine aficionado who worships at the altar of Chemex.

Stache to Add Morning Hours, Serving Panther Coffee and Rhino Doughnuts

Coffee beans getting roasted at Panther Coffee in Wynwood.
Coffee is finally starting to become a "thing" throughout South Florida. Not that getting caffeinated hasn't been a thing for a while, and expensive espresso drinks are nothing new either.

But we're not talking chi-chi chain coffee places here. When we say it's becoming a "thing," we mean a thing to be respected, an art. We are talking about caring about where your beans come from, how they are roasted (locally, of course), and then the care with which they are prepared.

The signs are all there. First, craft-beer haven Tap 42 announces it is getting into the coffee clutch with soon-to-open Warsaw Coffee. And now, Bar Stache 1920's Drinking Den, downtown Fort Lauderdale's own version of a speakeasy, will be serving Panther Coffee.

Argyle Coffee Joins Growing Roasting Community in Fort Lauderdale

Chain coffeehouses continue to be all the rage -- after all, when it comes to pleasing American palates, consistency seems to be the most important factor, and chains certainly offer that. But slowly, in the same way we've changed our attitudes toward "craft" and "artisanal" products, coffee is having a quiet resurgence among connoisseurs and those who simply want to enjoy refined tastes and lend an economic hand to their immediate community and not the Seattle boardroom of a company that may or may have not started as a mermaid porn purveyor (according to this Robot Chicken sketch anyways).

With a growing population of roasters like the charity-oriented Restore Coffee Roasters within the Christ Fellowship church at the Boynton Beach mall and Calusa Coffee Roasters on Commercial Boulevard taking hold this year, this is a change that can't be ignored.

Joining in is Argyle Coffee Roasters, brainchild of Costa Rican owner Manny Carrera. He's looking to defrock the modern mentality of having coffee on the go with the Ticos' more casual approach to coffee drinking -- a pura vida culture revolving around the cup's power to bring family, friends, and strangers to a table for friendly conversation.

For anyone who thinks pumpkin spice lattes jumped the shark this year, there's about to be a brand new novelty in town. Starbucks is releasing its first new holiday beverage in five years -- the Chestnut Praline Latte. Sounds fancy, right?

Best of all, this new drink can be made vegan! Add soy milk, skip the whipped cream, and it's a cruelty-free Christmas (or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, or Festivus) treat.
