cup of ATL

JAVAVINO | poncey-highlands

This local gem has been around since 2002 and brewing with class where the entire operation is in the family. I also stumbled on this spot in my early university years and have never been able to shake its charm. JavaVino has the essence of coming home.

Here’s the gist //

Location
579 N Highland Ave, ATL, GA 30307  |  404-577-8673

The Hours
M: 630am – 11am*  |  T-TH: 630am – 10pm  |  F: 630am – midnight
Sa: 8am – midnight  |  Su: 8am – 8pm
*Monday is a roasting day.

Beans
JavaVino roasts its own Selva Negra Estate Coffee beans from owners farm the Kuhl Family Plantation grown in the Matagalpa region of Nicaragua. You can read their story here. The body is balanced and the roast has some variation, both delicious and always a little surprise. These beans are both organic and fair trade and something they’ve trademarked as “seed-to-cup.” You can also buy their beans wholesale.

Signature
This is definitely a local hangout and great to walk to if you live in the Poncey area. The scene is artsy natives, a little family flair, and the kind of baristas where you leave best friends with a variety of food and drink adding to the bohemian café feel. The yin to their coffee yang is their Wine Cellar and Wine lounge.

Feast
The spread here is always a variety of pastries, including usually some gluten free numbers from Mae’s Bakery. They also have banging Rooster cookies. If you want a meal, there are some light menu options which are great paired with their wine selection. They top it off with a great selection of tea from Serendipitea.

Know Before You Go
Don’t forget that they close Mondays at 11 AM to roast for the afternoon. It’s also a smaller shop, so it has a likelihood to be full if you go at a peak hour which is typically early evenings or Saturdays. This also has easy access to the Atlanta Path. Dogs are welcome on the patio.

My Order
Soy Bee Sting Latté (spicy if I’m going for a kick in the pants sorta work day)

Get the social latest.
