Thirty years ago, a coffeehouse was born. In June 1984, the coffee wasteland that was Santa Fe woke up to the aromas of premium green beans roasted dark and lovingly brewed with clean mountain water wafting through the crisp high-altitude air. If you followed those aromas, you would have been led to a tiny coffee shop near downtown called Ohori’s, where a woman named Susan Ohori was running the whole highly caffeinated show.

Ohori, herself, is a coffee purist. She drinks a moka pot full of dark fresh brew every morning, and she takes it unapolagetically black. A Bay Area transplant, she felt that there was no good coffee to be had in Santa Fe, so she would bring in beans from Berkeley, Calif., for her morning cuppa.
