Micro-Roastery, Third Location and Freshly Made Churros!
Cocoa Cinnamon will be opening a micro-roastery and final retail location at 2013 Chapel Hill Road. Now that we’re out of beta mode at Hillsborough Road, we have begun developing the micro-roastery that will supply our three locations with our own coffee as well as continue to enjoy some guest roasters. The three shops together will make one cohesive whole, each part a piece of the puzzle.
With David Solow art + design and Linton Architects, we are working to design the Chapel Hill Road location to gel with the Lakewood neighborhood in feel. We have several team members who in the neighborhood and participate on the neighborhood board. The design of the shop itself will be a bit more akin to a Mexican feel, where the beauty and feel of the hand are present. We went to a place around the corner from our Tia Nenna’s house in Guadalajara last year that is a touch point for inspiration, plus some elements of the trip Areli and I were just on in the Mediterranean.
This location will have a menu that plays off of what we do and supports the addition of made to order churros (and chocolate of course)! It will have a kind of cross section price structure with some deliberately more accessible pricing, the community coffee option (a gift card where anyone can get a coffee paid for by the community) as well as a tailored menu to fit this feel and timing.
