Café Review: Ceremony Coffee in Baltimore

Ceremony Coffee

In Ethiopian culture, guests aren’t simply served a cup of coffee, they are invited to participate in a coffee ceremony. The host will patiently roast, grind, and brew their guest coffee in a ritual that’s practically sacred. This tradition is the inspiration behind Maryland’s Ceremony Coffee Roasters. The Annapolis-based roaster has quietly accumulated a list of accolades and awards that is nothing short of world class, but perhaps none as impressive as their Baltimore coffeehouse. 

Ceremony Coffee

It’s increasingly common for coffee roasters to open a flagship store. Equal parts brand promotion and retail potential, these cafés are impeccably designed and spare no expense on equipment. This doesn’t lessen the awe factor when one walks into Ceremony Baltimore. The space is bright, airy, and expansive, with plenty of seating. Large pub-height communal tables host the laptop crowd while smaller two-tops are reserved as device-free spaces. The bar is no less comprehensive.

Pour-overs are made by the cup with three Modbar stations while batch brew comes from Fetco autodrippers. Twin matte white Synessos handle the espresso service, with matching Mahlkönig and Nuevo Simoneli grinders in between. Clearly, Ceremony is designed to handle some volume, and, with 5 baristas on bar when we visited, staffed to as well. Ceremony utilizes their larger staff to offer more involved service than most American cafés. Drinks are brought to your table and dished are bussed for you. We’ve long felt this is one area American craft coffee shops could improve and we’re glad to see Ceremony helping raise the bar.

Per usual, we started things off with a shot of the house espresso, Ceremony’s Destroyer blend. It came in a rocks glass with a side of sparkling water. After a quick stir with the spoon, we took the first sip and found a sweet, balanced shot with a fair bit of acidity. The oversized glass highlighted the burnt sugar aromatics and the smart presentation completed the sensory experience. With a burst of caffeine finding its way into our blood stream we turned to our pour-over, a natural process Ethiopian Wazzala brewed with a Hario V60. This coffee had all of the wonderful berry notes one would expect from a natural with minimal fermented flavors. I usually prefer washed Ethiopians but this cup reminded me that branching out has its benefits.

In addition to coffee, Ceremony serves a seasonal menu of house-made salads and sandwiches. Coffee nerds will love how the granola comes either “enzymatic” with berries and citrus or “sugar browning” with toasted coconut and cacao nibs. An assortment of chocolate from craft producers such as Dick Taylor round out the menu.

In all, Baltimore’s Ceremony Coffee is an aptly named tribute to the Ethiopian coffee ceremony. Visitors can expect world class coffee and next level service in a beautiful, contemporary atmosphere.

Best cup of coffee I think I've ever had!

One of our favorite coffees we’ve had so far!

Great coffee, smooth and delicious

Everyone in our house is raving about this one. Great as a cold brew and hot!


Tasted burnt and the taste notes were not even close to what it actually tasted like.

As the description states, it's simple, but takes its flavors seriously. The tasting notes are accurate and present a lot of depth, and there are notes of sweetness without being cloying. Excellent stuff.


Not my favorite. It just felt weak. I needed another cup and I usually only drink 1 a day.

One of my favorites. Well balanced, rich with chocolate notes


This is great. We really enjoy how light the flavor is. It almost has a “tea” vibe.

Makes an excellent well balanced cup of coffee ‘perfectly medium roasted not too acidic Definite notes of brown sugar , caramel and cookie

Appealing - good but subtle flavor

Nice light blend worked well in French press, aeropress, and clever. A subtle sweetness to the taste and a got palate cleanser after coming out of a darker roast.

Awful. Too strong. Did not care for it at all

Delicious. Very well rounded and smooth.



Liked this Ceremony coffee a lot.

It's a good every day drinker, a bit sweeter but very tasty.


This was our favorite blend!

Really liked this one. Good blend of earthy flavors, but also smooth and not bitter.


It has a slightly acidic aftertaste to us. We liked how about and easy to drink, didn't quite get the "baking spice flavor"out of it

While this coffee is good, I definitely enjoyed the first two a little bit better. I feel like I did everything right - the coffee was ground right before brewing and I used my Chemex, but the taste was just not as good as the previous two.

A solid blend. Not as good as last month's blend but still solid.

I did not like this blend. It was too light.


really enjoyable, Ive been loving the light-medium roasts.

I liked it a lot. Very smooth taste.

great coffee. almost like my favorite german brand

Loved the light flavor and the great aroma

I forgot to rate this back when I got it, and I have since forgot my review, but what I can say, is I went out and bought another package of coffee, while I used this sparingly. Did not like the flavor

Tasted nice and balanced; a bit non-descript, but a great cup of joe.

Fantastic smooth blend of coffee!

I thought this one was just a good cup of coffee. Nothing exceptional, but a nice daily cup.

It smells like cookies. This is one of the best so far!

A slightly lighter roast which is nice. Slightly sour aftertaste but smooth and comforting.

Pretty good. Atiny bit lighter than i’d like.

Flavorful but not dark enough and a little too sour for my taste. Please recommend something darker and toastier. I like dark-toasted Java or Sumatra. Thoughts?

Fantastic flavor. Very smooth. Love it, more like this!

I liked this roast more than my first. The different flavor notes were evident and a great combo- and it was overall a smooth cup.

This is a perfect coffee to take me into the holidays -- my apartment smelled heavenly when I was grinding the beans & brewing my coffee. I liked the richness of this bean, with almost a chocolate-y undertone that came out. Usually I assume that I won't like darker beans because I associate the additional roasting with a burnt taste, but I didn't find that to be the case at all with this blend... the darker bean just gave it more of a bold flavor that I really enjoyed.

Aftertaste is too sour. Not to my taste.


We liked this; could taste the creme brulee notes. Slightly behind the previous coffee (Atomic Blend).

Perfect blend for my taste. Fruity, chocolate, great on the tongue.

Was more rich than what I prefer. DIdn't care so much for the baking spice notes, was a little too rich. Prefer something more nutty.

It's okay, I prefer more single origins.

Great coffee, poured a great shot, rich and sweet

I really enjoyed this blend. Very well rounded and creamy. A nice easy cup for the morning.

This blend is so yummy! There are definitely notes of baked cookie and caramel. Very delicious.

Nice flavor. No acid and no after taste. I liked both coffees. Both are rich but this one has a little more flavor. Not as dark as the last one. Very nice.

A nice light roasted all-purpose blend, true to its blend-namesake. While I wish it had more powerful tasting notes, it's softness gives it a comforting quality. If you want a nice third wave house blend, you could certainly do worse. Given it's intended purpose I would say Ceremony has hit the mark and I am interested in their other offerings.

Makes wonderful cold brew! Love this and would love more


Nice light blend with a sweet finish. A bit lighter roast than what I tend to love. Yummy.

This blend was a hit too. a little lighter coffee, but delicious still

Meh. It won't put hair on your chest.

Second favorite coffee of the five I've tried so far.

Very smooth and uncomplicated taste. Could have been a bit darker or bolder, but still a welcomed cup in the morning.

Did not care for this one, just tasted overly watery.

Good but a little on the bright side for me.


Its ok. a little too sweet.

The flavor was not strong enough and I did not like the bitter taste that others may prefer.

I really liked this one. It had great flavors and was very easy to drink.

This blend was delicious. Very aromatic and smooth.

Could be a touch darker/stronger - delicious cup though!

Delicious light roast. This is the best coffee I've had from MistoBox yet.

The coffee didn't have a very strong flavor to it and the beans didn't grind well.

I haven't decided if i like this one or not.

Just tried it this morning and I loved it! I was worried that it may be too sweet for my taste but it was just perfect.

Seems very mild. Sweet tasting, not a whole lot going on.

Tasting notes are good but too light of a roast.

Not that good. I kept playing with the grind size and it got a bit better over time, but it isn't one I'd buy again. FYI, I'm using an Aeropress with the standard instructions to make double espresso that I drink black. The coffee might work better made other ways.

A little too "bright" for my taste. Prefer the finish to be more mellow and smooth.

Amazing. I enjoy the after taste definitely. This is good for every once in a while. I quite enjoy the roasted type coffee the most, rather than sugar flavored ones. :)

Love the clean packaging. The aroma was a blast of baked cookie. This coffee was one for sharing, over a Chemex, with a friend. Sweet and cozy.

Sorry, but this coffee doesn't do anything for me. The beans are dry, which my coffee grinder and I appreciate in a darker roast, but this coffee has no body, little taste and is very wine-y.

No distinct flavor or taste. Not a bad cup of coffee, but not a great one either.



Overall, it was a great blend. You could really taste the tobacco hints which were not my favorite but the rest of the flavors were great.

WE STRIVE TO DELIVER THE CUP OF COFFEE THAT CHANGES SOMEONE'S LIFE. At Ceremony, we really do hear it again and again from our customers: they simply cannot forget their enigmatic first experience with our coffee. Coffee becomes something entirely new to them, even if they had been regular drinkers. That's simply because we have an unrelenting passion for producing the best coffee, and we know what it takes to do so at every step of the process. ^p^ We are constantly working to push harder toward the best coffee possible. Our work begins by sourcing some of the best arabica beans from four continents each growing season. We often travel to coffee farms to build relationships with farmers and to help perfect the process from the very beginning. After the green coffee arrives in Annapolis, we set about honing a new roast profile for that crop. Our goal is to really understand the coffee that we're working with and bring out its individual character and inherent qualities. This is, above all, the heart of our craft. The result is that we can offer a consistently excellent but diverse line-up of coffees. If you live in or around Annapolis, we invite you to visit us at our roastery and coffeehouse. Ceremony coffee is also available in cafés, restaurants, and specialty food stores throughout the US.
