Fort Worth, Texas — The second location of AVOCA Coffee Roasters will open Monday, June 6 near the West 7th area at 835 Foch St.
The new location will feature the debut of AVOCA’s cold brew on tap, which craft coffee lovers will be able to enjoy at the coffee shop or at home as refillable growlers will be available for purchase.
The menu will include coffee and tea offerings similar to the Magnolia Ave. location. An expanded selection of bakery treats will be available from local favorites Boopa’s Bagels, McKinley Bakery & Cafe, Stir Crazy Baked Goods and Swiss Pastry Shop with vegan pastries from Spiral Diner.
Founders Garold LaRue and Jimmy Story chose to open another location because many of their friends, fellow local business owners and wholesale clients are located in the area.
“The AVOCA team is more than ready to open our doors and welcome fellow craft coffee lovers into our cool new Foch Street space,” said LaRue.
The 2,000 square-foot space has an open floor plan and an industrial feel with distressed concrete floors, high ceilings and light color walls. Painted murals by artist Kelsey Heimerman will canvas the coffee shop’s main wall as well as the hallway leading from the front entrance into the main seating area.
Indoor seating will be available with soft banquette-style benches designed by Charles Alan. PalletSmart designed and built the indoor tables as well as the picnic tables for the patio. The covered patio with garage doors that can be raised will allow guests to sip and savor al fresco. The space will feature plenty of electrical outlets for those looking to work, study or meet in a relaxing environment.
“The community has supported AVOCA since we opened our doors on Magnolia,” said Story. “We’re excited for the opportunity to open on the other side of town to serve more locals.”
The new location has added 15 jobs to the local economy. AVOCA will be open Monday – Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In addition to its brick-and-mortar locations, AVOCA sells its artisanal coffee online. The company also offers wholesale products and ingredients for restaurants, grocers, hotels and more; roasting and brewing equipment installation, repair and maintenance; menu development; and barista training.
