“Five Points got a big caffeine boost late last month when Queen City Collective Coffee opened its second coffeehouse location in the neighborhood at 2962 Welton Street.
The space, which is located adjacent to the 29th and Welton light rail stop, is no stranger to coffee as it was the previous home of Purple Door Coffee. Westword reported in May that Purple Door, which has a focus on employing youth who have been previously homeless, was closing up its shop to focus on its growing roasting operation.
Queen City Collective Coffee, which began as a wholesale roastery with a commitment to serving single-origin coffees, opened its first coffeehouse location about a year ago at 305 West First Avenue in Baker in a space it shares with Strand Brewing Co.
Queen City co-founder Scott Byington said the new Five Points location will have the same coffee menu offerings as the Baker original, including staples like lattes, cortados, and shots of espresso prepared from Queen City Collective’s single origin roasts.
However, the new location is also adding some new products, including a small selection of palomas and other mocktails that have been made with coffee instead of alcohol. Queen City Collective Coffee debuted a larger selection of those mocktails when it opened its new cold brew coffee bar inside the new Mission Ballroom concert venue in Elyria-Swansea in August.”
