Cultivating Community Through Coffee
While some people like to think that life begins each morning with a cup of coffee, this Globe coffee shop fully embodies that mantra with the name Vida e Caffé which translates to “life and coffee”. This Globe hot spot embodies what it means to prioritize community. They had closed their doors in 2015 after the purchase of 1904 historic building in Historic Downtown Globe to make a move. Prioritizing historic preservation is not an easy feat but this cafe knew that it was key when working towards the re-invigoration of the downtown business scene and attracting tourist.
Not only is Vida e Caffé a hub for impromptu meetings among colleagues and friends but it hosts a variety of events focused on community building. Vida e Caffé hopes to set the example for other entrepreneurs looking to invest in historic Downtown Globe showing that it is possible to renovate and reinvigorate the historic buildings to code while hosting a thriving business.
Many rural communities struggle to keep their young people engaged and connected to their hometown. However, since reopening their doors earlier this year Vida e Caffé has hosted numerous events that attract a youthful demographic. From live music to video game tournaments, this cafe always captures the community's attention.
While Vida e Caffé is a star in community engagement, they (obviously) are known for their high quality beverages and pastries. You can find your typical house brew and pour-over coffee, but they can also take it one step further. At Vida e Caffé you can find specialty creations such as prickly pear lemonade, almond joy blended drinks, heart healthy smoothies, boba tea and other delicious creations.
In addition to unique drinks, homemade pastries are available fresh daily made by co-owner, Chef Jordan Johnson. Half the fun of a visit to Vida e Caffé is seeing what creations Chef Jordan Johnson has come up with. Once you've tasted her creations be sure to consider her catering service: Vida e Catering. With a passion for providing healthy yet delicious menu items; Vida e Catering is perfect your next event or family function.
