Roasting the best coffee in Richmond, hands down!

The company was founded in the Museum District and they are proud of the fact that they are the only coffee shop, and more importantly coffee roaster in the district. The iconic corner of Belmont and Patterson provides them with their own identity. They are not surrounded by other retail establishments. Lastly they looked at this project from an economic redevelopment perspective. Taking an old run down laundromat and turning it into a viable business was a top priority and has added value to the Museum District overall.

2. Cafe Caturra
