Matt and Aless met in 2011 in Bethel, Connecticut at Matt’s second coffee shop job. Aless came in for open mic night, noticed the cute barista behind the bar, asked for his number, and… they have been inseparable ever since. Pretty early on, the two began mentioning the idea of opening a coffee shop one day. In 2018, Matt and Aless decided to seriously start looking for locations for the shop. Middlebury was the obvious choice. This will be their 2nd location, after opening Royal Oak Coffee.
