Seven months after the closure of Caffe Frascati – a culture and coffee magnet in downtown San Jose – the SoFA district’s much-anticipated new coffeehouse is making its debut.
Co-founders and sisters Jeronica Macey (CEO) and Be’Anka Ashaolu (CMO) and their team of baristas will start brewing on South First Street at Nirvana Soul on Saturday at 9:00 am.
Coffee and tea come first, and if coronavirus-era rules allow, the sisters plan to activate the cafe with local musicians and artists to continue the legacy of this space.
The opening is the climax of a long-cherished dream.
“Nirvana Soul had to start in downtown San Jose. We live here, we are invested here, and it’s only right that we start our business here, ”they told Downtown Dimensions of the San Jose Downtown Association. “With all of the residents, students and professionals, there just isn’t enough going on to serve them. We are happy to do our part to ensure that something else needs to be done. “
This third wave coffee specialist will offer beans from a single origin in espresso drinks and will offer a first menu of sweet and savory waffles.
Daily opening times from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. are planned for the opening time.
