The popular Local Coffee has opened its third location. It’s at the Pearl Brewery.
Known for its commitment to keeping things simple but of high quality, Local Coffee will continue to be a multi-roaster shop and will work with some of the top national roasters including Stumptown Coffee, Madcap Coffee, Intelligentsia and others.
There’s a dedicated area for up to three rotating weekly offerings from Texas roasters such as Tweed in Dallas or Cuvee’ and Flat Track in Austin. They also offer brewing and palate education, brewing equipment, logo wares and retail bags from all their roasters at their Pearl location.
“I am really pumped to be partnering with the Pearl,” said Local Coffee owner Robby Grubbs. “I have always felt we were a natural fit, but the timing of the development and our location was worth the wait. Our negotiations and collaborative effort in designing our space has been a true organic process and I cannot wait to see it come together. We chose Pearl for the opportunity to have people walk in just because it said coffee on our sign. We then have an opportunity to turn those folks’ ‘coffee light’ on, especially since most people have no idea what they’re missing!”
Local Coffee’s menu items include espresso, slow pour and decaf drinks. Currently, Local Coffee is working with a new roaster to create a house coffee that will rotate every three to four months.
Located out of Dallas, Tweed, which is owned by the owner of Houndstooth Coffee in Austin, will collaborate with Local Coffee to have a seasonal single-origin coffee. This will be a Local/Tweed collaboration coffee that their customers can buy per cup or in retail bags at the Pearl location.
Pearl is also home to the Culinary Institute of America, San Antonio; some of San Antonio’s top restaurants as well as culinary shops and gift shops, a Saturday farmers market and much more.
