New Coffee Shops - January 2019
Article by Marlen Mendoza
The dream of owning a small business such as a coffee shop can be extremely rewarding and terrifying at the same time. The restless nights, the stack of bills on the kitchen table, the never ending to do list!
With that being said, the community supporting the small business industry, the business to people interaction, and the great satisfaction of calling something your own.. is absolutely worth it.
Here at the collective, we are hosting a platform for the new coffee shops opening in 2019. We will periodically update this list throughout the year so keep a look out for more shops to come!
To the coffee shop owners and respective teams, congrats on your opening and much luck to your new coffee endeavors.
The Woodlands - Blue Door Coffee Company (Coffee Shop)
“We are a coffee shop and café. Focusing on the art of coffee, we bring specialty coffee to the Woodlands while also building community. We love a good story and love to share the stories with our customers! We also serve breakfast and lunch and bake all out pastries in house!”
Downtown - Common Grounds HTX (Coffee Shop)
“We are more than just a specialty coffee shop featuring locally roasted coffees and teas. We bring technologies and methods that are uncommon to a place that is underserved-Downtown Houston. Satisfying the palette of a coffee connoisseur while still remaining approachable was important to us. Cultivating an experience for our guests, while meeting those goals, was paramount and one we are confident we can deliver.”
Museum District - Java Lava Brew (Coffee Shop)
Address : 1201 Southmore Blvd, Houston, TX - Texas
“Aloha and welcome to Java Lava Brew! More than just nourishment, food is connection, giving us a chance to find common ground over a rich cup of coffee and a warm, fresh out-of-the-oven quiche. Food is the memory of your first date, sharing the crispy lava fries, refreshing volcano salad, and the awesome loco moco burger. Food is identity, with 100% Kona coffee grown and hand-picked from our farm, and recipes from our backgrounds of Houston, Hawaii, and Vietnam. Food is understanding and acceptance. Eating is the universal experience. We want to share with you the foods of our history, and to hear your stories, and to see you full and happy. Mahalo!”
