Yesterday afternoon Jenifer and I wandered into Panther Coffee in Wynwood district today when the gallery we were going to visit was closed. The owners, Leticia and Joel, are very personable and very passionate coffee people. The coffee is fantastic and roasted in-house in a beautiful roaster originally built in 1927 and rebuilt by Joel and his father. They will prepare it with whatever method you choose: clever, french press, vacuum pot, drip, espresso, etc. On top of that, they offer some amazing pastries (although I didn’t catch from where) and a very comfortable place to have a seat and people watch in the heart of Wynwood. We can’t wait for their official grand opening next week during Second Saturday!!!
Here are a few pictures:
