Updated the main post just now. Most of the changes have been in Dade Co. w. a few in Broward. It's getting hard to keep track! Highlights in no particular order:
magazine is now live! This is a digital magazine/labor of love published by Michelle Hopper, Dan Karram, and Dave Imber that focuses on "uncovering the stories behind coffee [in S. FL] and the people who brew it." Highly recommended.
: Within the next few months we should have both Blue Bottle and La Colombe opening. Incidentally, Hopper (see above) has left Switchbox and will be a lead barista at Blue Bottle. Brewing Buddha just opened in Pinecrest. I've also added Box Coffee and Brothers and Brawlers as well as new local roasters Strongpull and With.
: Wells Coffee should be opening their roastery and tasting room by the end of July, and M.A.S. Café is working on a new location (ETA Fall 2018) now that their pop-up has closed.
Please continue to chime in with suggestions, comments, and reviews! I tend to do most of my editorializing on Twitter but will happily respond here instead if anyone has specific questions or needs feedback.
Speaking of reviews, I recently noticed this one
on shops in St. Petersburg, Tampa, and Ocala that might interest some of you.
