CodeMark TV Episode 47
Most great Realtors specialize in a specific geographic location. In this episode of Lunch with Mark I’m joined by my favorite Houston Heights Realtor, Dawn Beltrami. She took me to her favorite spot for Coffee & Tea, EQ Heights.
EQ joined Houston Heights in March of 2015. Owner Kevin Blasini founded EQ Heights – his first adventure into specialty coffee. Kevin’s career path started in New Orleans, in corporate America. After about 10 years in the oil and gas industry, Kevin moved to Houston where he spent the next 10 years really enjoying his work. However, his heart wasn’t completely set on oil for the rest of his life.
As he traveled around the world for work, Kevin was introduced to different styles of coffee and tea. He would seek out different coffee shops to get a feel of the unique scene of that place. Even today, Kevin recommends exploring the different local coffee shops within the locations you visit so you can really understand the culture of the area.
Kevin is a resident of Houston Heights, and it was important for him to support local business in his area. The coffee sold at EQ Heights comes from Java Pura, a local roaster. All the coffees sold on site are direct farm, meaning there is a relationship between the roaster and the grower of the coffee. And, did we mention everything is completely natural? Through the growing and roasting process, a lot of the beans are kept intact, preserving the rich flavors inside.
While you’re enjoying a tasty cup, you’ll be surrounded by craftsman furniture. Beautiful table tops made from fallen trees located within the Heights. Local artists and musicians commonly frequent EQ during the week and on the weekends.
So, grab a cup, listen to live music, admire beautiful art, and join the community that has come together at EQ Heights! We’ll be waiting for you!
