A popular Twin Cities based coffee company has announced the opening of its first cafe.
Blackeye Roasting Company is known for its cold brew coffee that comes on tap and in cans. It's first location will open this spring in the skyway level of the Towle building (also known as the Galaxy office building), at 330 2nd Ave. South in Minneapolis.
According to The Journal, the cafe will have 18 seats and 10 tap lines in addition to traditional hot coffee and espresso drinks, nitro iced tea, kombucha from Prohibition Kombucha and non-alcoholic cocktails inspired by Bittercube.
BevNet describes the Blackeye Signature Cold Brew as crispy and slightly sweet, and the Nitro Cold Brew as smoother with a velvety taste and "the look and feel of a stout (without the alcohol)."
So far, Blackeye Roasting has served its coffee on tap at 17 locations in the Twin Cities metro area, including Pizza Luce and Red Cow. Click here to see the full list.
The company also has its own delivery service. And just this past month, SuperAmerica and Whole Foods stores in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa started selling cans of its low-calorie, dairy-free and sugar-free coffee for about $3, said Convenience Store and Fuel News.
"Blackeye Roasting Co. Coffee is a deliciously drinkable, less acidic version of the daily cup of Joe – with enough caffeine to kick start your day, or a night out," said the outlet.
