I opened my first coffee shop in 1996 with a mission to provide the very best coffee and tea and the very best customer service in our market. By 2010 my team had accumulated multiple awards for product quality, customer service, and building design. We were especially proud to win the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) TOPS award 5 consecutive years for “retailing excellence.” This award was given annually to 25 coffee shops world-wide.
After selling the business in 2010 I went into a short retirement. I had an idea for a new type of coffee shop but I needed a catalyst to get me off my butt. That catalyst was my sister.
Inspired by my late sister Lori, whose kindness always embraced family and friends, Bondadoso, Spanish for “kind”, embodies her character. Simply stated, a place for people to gather and share great coffee and tea in an environment that is uplifting, welcoming, and kind.
We don’t have a mission or a vision but a way of “being”. We are crazy about coffee and tea…everything about coffee and tea; how it’s grown, where its grown, how it is bought, roasted, blended, and enjoyed but most of all we are passionate about how it is shared.
We feature a traditional espresso bar and a single cup brew bar. One of our unique features is our tap wall with 8 types of cold-brew coffee and tea offerings including nitro-coffee and nitro-tea.
Our retail area houses an extensive collection of unique coffee and tea. We feature relatively unknown micro-roasters and micro-tea producers from around the world. Each roaster and producer has a story of their own that embraces our “kind” theme.
We invite you to experience Bondadoso Coffee & Tea Collective. We promise a great experience.
