TAMPA, FL — In need of a pick-me-up? You’re in luck.
Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company, headquartered in Tampa since 1984, will open its flagship café at Midtown Tampa with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration at 9:30 a.m. Thursday. Joffrey’s will be open for business Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Regular hours begin Aug. 13. Joffrey’s will be open Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
“We’re excited to announce that Joffrey’s has selected Midtown Tampa for its flagship store,” said Nicholas Haines, CEO of Bromley Companies, developer of Midtown Tampa. “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.”
“Joffrey’s is thrilled to be opening our flagship location in the Midtown development,” said Ted Abrams, president and CEO of Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea Company. “We’ve been part of the Tampa Bay community for more than 35 years and are proud to call it home. 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 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 by Dunedin Brewery made with Joffrey’s coffee).
Joffrey’s will also feature breakfast items, artisan pastries and other baked goods.
At Joffrey’s 1,500-square-foot Midtown location, guests also 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 establish relationships with farmers whenever possible and values the work it takes to produce a superior crop.
Joffrey’s also prides itself on giving back to the local community, most recently serving complementary coffee to first responders and health care workers around the Tampa Bay area during the pandemic.
The company works with several local charities such as Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Make a Wish Southern Florida and the military charity Task Force Dagger Foundation and Folds of Honor, creating a unique coffee blend for each charity where $1 from each bag purchased goes back to the cause.
Joffrey’s was established in 1984 and now distributes its products nationally to world-class resorts and hotels, fine restaurants, cruise lines, coffee shops, gourmet stores, supermarkets and in business offices. Joffrey’s is also the official specialty coffee of Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and Disney Vacation Club.
