Carrboro Coffee Roasters has opened a pop-up coffee bar at Golden Belt, 807 E. Main Street, in Downtown Durham. The new location serves brewed coffee, espresso drinks and other non-caffeinated drinks, Monday through Friday, 8am – 2pm. The pop-up coffee bar will also be used for training and outreach for the Roastery, which supplies coffee to cafés, restaurants and retail locations throughout the region.
“We’re excited to be serving our coffees in Golden Belt,” says Carrboro Coffee President, Scott Conary. “The new location provides us a venue to further educational outreach with our clients on that side of the Triangle and to share our Direct Relationship and other limited edition coffees with those in Downtown Durham, who may not have heard of us yet. The goal of the pop-up is to use the space for immediate outreach and coffee service with an eye toward building out the full-service café Golden Belt deserves.”
Gary Keuber, CEO of Scientific Properties, says “We’re thrilled that Carrboro Coffee Roastery, an operator with great experience and a successful track record, has chosen to open at Golden Belt. The quality of the coffee is second-to-none, and we think it’s a great fit for Downtown Durham’s premier creative business and culture destination.”
Former home to the Golden Belt Manufacturing Company, the historic 160,000 square foot, seven-acre LEED Gold campus in downtown Durham consists of 6 architecturally-significant buildings renovated by Scientific Properties in 2008. The creative mixed-use center houses 37 live/work residential lofts, 35 artist studios, Room 100 gallery, the Cotton Room, as well as retail and office space. Carrboro Coffee Roasters joins retailers such as LabourLove Gallery, Dogstar Tattoo, Hot Yoga of Durham and Moshi Moshi salon at Golden Belt.
