Cuvee Coffee Bar

Deep in the heart of Texas, there’s a company that’s been powering innovation and productivity with caffeine for years now. While you can pick Cuvee Coffee up at just about any grocery in town, I stopped by their flagship spot (Cuvee Coffee Bar) in Austin. Checking out any company’s flagship store is a bit like learning how they see themselves in the mirror. You get to see all of what a business imagine’s it’s brand’s personality to be. It’s fascinating.
About the Cuvee Coffee Bar
The Cuvee Coffee Bar is on Austin’s up-and-coming east side (East Sixth Street to be more specific), and offers coffee, coldbrew on tap, and craft beers. There’s some parking next to the building, and seating both outside and in. The espresso bar has a funky shape, and the interior is filled with color (there’s a pretty sweet mural on the wall to the right in the photo below) paired with gastropub-style furnishings. When I was there, there weren’t a whole lot of people around, but the coffee was carefully brewed and service was super friendly. This is definitely a place worth checking out whether your visiting or live in Austin.
Cuvee Coffee’s love of community
There are a bunch of coffee roasters in the Austin area these days (and in Texas in general), but Cuvee Coffee stands out as one of the more mature coffee companies in the area (technically from Spicewood, Texas). And yet, even though they’ve been around for a while, Cuvee Coffee is and continues to be committed to their Texas roots. Just follow Mike McKim (Cuvee’s CEO) and you’ll get a feel for his love of this area.
By the way, interesting fact about the name, “Cuvee”. The word is French and describes, “wine in vats or casks, blended, often from different vintages, for uniform quality”.
Now if only we could get Mike to invite us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the roasting facility… 🙂
