Hey guys,

Just letting you guys know of a new cafe that's opening in San Jose with a different spin on the coffee game.
Red Berry Coffee Bar, located at 5th & Santa Clara St in the historic Vintage Tower, is soft-opening
its doors this Monday, October 26th.

Nestled directly across from City Hall, Red Berry is indulging a coffee geek's fantasy:  Three of the tastiest local
roasters will be brewed with care and attention under one roof.  Barefoot Coffee, Ecco Cafe, and Ritual Roasters
are forming the coffee supergroup that will be French Pressing and romance pulling the taste buds of San Jose's
coffee citizens and the coffee elect.

Co-headlining the tour are our friends at Teance.  They've got a setlist 10 teas long, and they're equally primed to
rock your pot.  It's the coffee spot you've never dreamed could happen--until now.


RED BERRY COFFEE BAR
231 E Santa Clara St
San Jose, CA 95113-1906
(408) 286-0508
info@redberrycoffeebar.com
Serving up Ecco Cafe, Ritual Roasters and Barefoot Coffee, and Teance tea.

Chris,  Congratulations on opening the new place.  I'm looking forward to stopping by.  Brewing Barefoot, Ecco and Ritual under one roof sounds awesome.    Are you opening for curious coffee geeks to stop by over the weekend?

PS, hope the mods let you slide on breaking the probational period.  Especially since I'm glad to see the post.

I took a chance and dropped by the Red Berry Coffee Bar this morning and they didn't kick me out. The owner Jeff is shown here steaming milk.

They were dialing in The Boss. Nice and fruity but needs more chocolate.
