Happy Friday Loves! Today kicks off the first of my “Coffee Date” series. For the next few weeks I’ll be featuring my FAVORITE places to get coffee in Augusta. Don’t get me wrong, I love Starbucks as much as the next gal, but with so many cute places in Augusta it’s hard to justify that $2.95 cup of commercial Joe. This week I’m featuring my all time favorite in Augusta, Buona Caffe.
I’ve said it before, but coffee dates have kind of become our thing. With a baby getting out for a dinner date isn’t as easy as it used to be. Coffee dates are the perfect alternative and are MUCH cheaper too!
Perhaps one of the most interesting things about Buona is the story… The owners started roasting coffee for fun on their back porch just a few years ago, and what started out as a hobby led to a popular roasting business, and now the actual storefront, Buona Caffe. Their story goes to show that when you really love what you do, you’ll end up being successful. Of course some serious hustle and elbow grease is essential too! Buona Caffe has been named one of the most popular Indie coffee shops in America (ranked by Fodor’s) AND they supply the coffee to the Governor’s mansion. How cool is that? You can read the full story here.
Geordie and I have been coming here what seems like every Friday and Saturday since they opened, and now that baby George is around it’s a family tradition.
^^latte art on point!!
Just order a cup of coffee (vanilla almond milk latte for me please, and a pour over for Geordie) and a morning glory muffin, snag a table, and start your day off the right way. Did I mention all the syrups are housemade and absolutely delicious?
Of course I had to mention my other love… #coffeenclothes
You can find Buona Caffe at 1858 Central Avenue in Augusta or on Facebook here.
Stay tuned for next weeks Coffee Date at New Moon in Downtown Augusta!
Happy Saturday loves!
