New Café to Open In South Royalton
A new coffee shop is coming to South Royalton this fall.
First Branch Coffee Company will open on Chelsea Street, featuring ethically sourced coffee, micro batches and cold brew.
Chris Perry, Andrew Puchalik and Ivan Tomek, the owners of Upper Pass Beer Co. in Tunbridge, started brewing beer in 2015 and shortly later started brewing coffee.
They're experimenting with a 30-pound coffee roaster to get their flavors right. The trio is trying and mixing bean combinations from all over the world, including Hawaii, Mexico, Papua New Guinea and Sulawesi.
They plan to serve food also, but the main focus will be coffee.
