Cocoa Cinnamon Update Part 2


Linton Architects’ visualization of the space that we will be sharing with them for our second location at the corner of Hillsborough Road and Trent Drive. We hope to be open some time fall 2015.

We’re excited to have Linton Architects as the landlord for our second location!  They will be renovating the building over the next 6 to 8 months at the corner of Trent Dr. and Hillsborough Road. David Solow Art + Design be our designer and we will all work with Linton and a group of local artists to create a unique space.  Thanks to Brandon Hoe of ClearSketch for suggesting the location.  Check out the Indy Week article here.


We spend lots of time behind the scenes working on our craft and challenging ourselves to be at the top of our game.  Many of the crew can be pretty shy; we’re lovers of the everyday of the bar, not huge on the spotlight.  That being said, Megan, Kala, Ravyne and Esar ventured over to the Triangle Thursday Night Latte Art Throwdown, which was held this past week at Yellow Dog Bread Company in Raleigh, intending to watch the friendly competition.  Megan signed Ravyne up to compete without her really being signed on herself.  She didn’t have too much time to protest as she was called up first. And all of our crew knows that Ravyne rocks the latte art, so they weren’t having any of Ravyne’s protests anyway.  In her first time ever competing, Ravyne took first place!  We’re super proud of her and knew she could do it!  Those cool skilled hands should come in quite handy when she attends med school next year.  Ravyne’s performance means a lot to us as she has honed her craft over this past year and 1/2, working systematically, getting better and better every day, never quite being satisfied and always humble about her skills! Well deserved!
