TAMPA, FL (April 13, 2020) — Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company, headquartered in Tampa since 1984, will open a flagship café at Midtown Tampa, Bromley Companies confirmed today.
“We’re excited to announce that Joffrey’s has selected Midtown Tampa for its flagship store,” said Nicholas Haines, CEO, Bromley Companies. “As the largest artisan coffee roaster in the Southeast, Joffrey’s joins the collection of best-in-class retailers we’ve curated for one-of-a-kind experiences like none other in the region.”
The massive $500 million mixed-use development, the city’s most anticipated destination district, is already 75 percent leased and on schedule to open first quarter 2021.
“Joffrey’s is thrilled to be opening our flagship location in the Midtown development. We’ve been part of the Tampa Bay community for more than 35 years and are proud to call it home,” said Ted Abrams, President & CEO, Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea Company. “We pride ourselves on brewing the world’s best coffee and tea, and couldn’t be more excited to bring that passion to our new retail home at Midtown Tampa.”
Joffrey’s will make its caffeinated splash at Midtown with a wide variety of coffee and tea beverage options including espresso, lattes, cold brew, nitro cold brew, ready-to-drink offerings, as well as premium iced and hot teas.
Located near Midtown Commons, a lively central green space, Joffrey’s will remain open throughout the day and into the evening offering wine and beer selections (including a locally brewed coffee beer made with Joffrey’s coffee). Joffrey’s will also feature breakfast items, artisan pastries, and other baked goods.
At Joffrey’s 1,500 sq. ft. Midtown café, guests will be able to “create” latte art from pre-selected images, selfies, and uploaded designs of their choosing with a Ripple machine.
Joffrey’s sources only the best beans from ethical and sustainable farms across the globe. Joffrey’s head roastmaster frequently travels to origin and establishes relationships with farmers whenever possible and values the work it takes to produce a superior crop.
Joffrey’s prides itself on giving back to the local community and most recently has been serving complementary coffee to first responders and healthcare workers around the Tampa Bay area. The company works with several local charities such as Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Make a Wish Southern Florida and military charity Task Force Dagger Foundation and Folds of Honor. Joffrey’s has created a unique coffee blend for each charity where $1 from each bag purchased goes back to the cause.
