With a writer’s keen eye, a longtime resident’s familiarity, and his own sly wit, acclaimed novelist Madison Smartt Bell leads us on a walk through his adopted hometown of Baltimore, a city where crab cakes, Edgar Allan Poe, hair extensions, and John Waters movies somehow coexist. From its founding before the Revolutionary War to its place in popular culture—thanks to seminal films like Barry Levinson’s Diner, the television show Homicide, and bestselling books by George Pelecanos and Laura Lippman—Baltimore is America, and in Charm City, Bell brings its story to vivid life.
First revealing how Baltimore received some of its nicknames—including “Charm City”—Bell sets off from his neighborhood of Cedarcroft and finds his way across the city’s crossroads, joined periodically by a host of fellow Baltimoreans. Exploring Baltimore’s prominent role in history (it was here that Washington planned the battle of Yorktown and Francis Scott Key witnessed the “bombs bursting in air”), Bell takes us to such notable spots as the Inner Harbor and Federal Hill, as well as many of the undiscovered corners that give Baltimore its distinctive character. All the while, Charm City sheds deserved light onto a sometimes overlooked, occasionally eccentric, but always charming place.

8oz Bold and Strong Whole Bean (for freshest coffee possible)
Small batch roasted, to uphold the highest quality
Roasted to order, you will get the freshest coffee available
Micro-lot from family owned farms, grown on small farms at high altitudes
Our fine coffees are farm-to-cup: we use this phrase to describe coffee's journey to your cup: farmed, source processed, roasted, and brewed. We only use small lots, coffees grown on small lots support family-owned farms and have lower yields making the supply of high quality growers limited and valuable. The best coffees in the world are grown on small farms at high altitudes. Small batch roasters are like gourmet chefs selecting and bringing out the unique flavors in their ingredients (in this case coffee beans). Roasting coffee is an art & science with many variables: temperature, timing, water content, mixture, and quantity. All of these nuances are better controlled in smaller batches. Coffee can sit on grocery store shelves for up to 36 weeks. That's why most coffee bags have expiration dates instead of 'Roasted-On' dates. Freshness matters to taste and flavor in a big way. That's why emphasizing freshness is so important as a differentiator – we roast to order.

With nicknames such as Mob Town and Syphilis City no one would deny that Baltimore has its dark side. Before shows such as The Wire and Homicide: Life on the Streets brought the city's crime rate to national attention, locals entertained themselves with rumors surrounding the mysterious death of writer Edgar Allan Poe and stories Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald, who spent time in a Baltimore area sanitarium in the 1930s. Tourists make the Inner Harbor one of the most traveled areas in the country, but if they would venture a few streets north to The Block on Baltimore Street they would see an area once famous for its burlesque shows. It is only the locals who would know to continue north on St. Paul to the Owl Bar, a former speakeasy that still proudly displays some of its Prohibition era paraphernalia. Wicked Baltimore: The Seedy Side of Charm City, details the salacious history of Baltimore and its denizens from the city's earliest history up to through Prohibition.
