Palm Beach County's first coffee roaster, Oceana Coffee Roasting, is expanding. The local roaster founded by Scott and Amy Angelo has opened its first retail shop in Tequesta, featuring a conference room that doubles as space for a series of coffee-focused educational courses.
"Thanks to [our customers], Oceana Coffee has outgrown its humble beginnings on Old Dixie Highway, so we started looking for a new place to build what we are calling our prototype café," said roaster Scott Angelo. "We looked at a lot of places and eventually settled back in Tequesta."
The new retail shop is in the Fashion Mall plaza next door to Waterview Kitchens, Treasure Coast Floors, and Head to Toe Massage. The 2,000-square-foot space has a private business conference room available for booking private presentations and meetings. The shop is also equipped with free Wi-Fi and high-speed internet access.
Of course, you can also order from the same menu of coffee selections as the previous store, including pour-overs, espresso, lattes, and more. Most exciting is the shop's newest addition: several taps serving Oceana's cold brew, fresh brewed iced tea, and kombucha provided by One Kombucha in Palm Beach Gardens. The shop will also serve a variety of baked goods and grab-n-go lunchtime fare prepared by local chef.
As for the original location (221 Old Dixie Highway, Suite 1, Tequesta; 561-401-2453); it's not going anywhere. For now, you can still go to grab a cup of coffee, or see the roasting in action. The space is being overhauled for use as commercial space while Oceana expands its production and distribution throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties.
"We at Oceana Coffee thank everyone for helping a passion for coffee help us to become a growing, family-owned small business," said Scott.
This weekend, Oceana Coffee will be also be practicing their art of coffee making at the ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival at Abacoa from Saturday, February 14 through Monday, February 16. Visit them at the heart of ArtiGras right next to the FPL Cool Zone. Oceana will be serving their signature single source roasts from the top 5 percent of beans in the world in both hot and cold brewed versions.
Oceana Coffee Roasters new retail shop is located at 150 N. U.S. 1. Hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The new shop will host its official grand-opening-day celebrations and ribbon-cutting on February 20 starting at 8 a.m. and continuing throughout the weekend. Visit oceanacoffee.com.
