ReAnimator Coffee Opens Big New Spot

While we’ve been all amped up on news from La Colombe, ReAnimator Coffee has quietly expanded with its own bigger and better facility.

ReAnimator Coffee is hosting their grand opening at 310 Master Street on Saturday October 11th starting at 3 p.m. The coffee shop is currently open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends, but the grand opening is a great time to tour the new space, a restored elevator factory in the Kensington neighborhood.

The new space serves not only as a ReAnimator cafe, but will also house the green coffee inventory, serve as a training lab for employees and feature a 12 kilo Probat coffee roaster.
