Founders of Fort Worth’s artisanal coffee roaster AVOCA Coffee Roasters announced today they will open a second location late this fall in the West Seventh area at 835 Foch St.

In the new location, AVOCA will unveil its cold brew on tap, where coffee lovers will be able to enjoy in house or at home via refillable growlers. The new location will make use of two premium espresso machines — a rare 1979 La Marzocco GS2 and a newer model La Marzocco Lines PB2 Group — will be used to brew espresso in house.

The menu will include coffee and tea offerings similar to the existing Magnolia Ave. location. An expanded selection of bakery treats will be available from local favorites Boopa’s Bagels, Le Chat Noir Cupcake Bordello and Bakery, McKinley Bakery & Cafe, Stir Crazy Baked Goods and Swiss Pastry Shop with vegan pastries from Spiral Diner.

The 2,000 square-foot, open floor-plan space will have an industrial feel with distressed concrete floors, high ceilings and light color walls, which will feature local artwork. Indoor seating will be available with soft banquette-style benches designed by Charles Alan, and the roomy outdoor patio will allow guests to sip and savor al fresco. Like the Magnolia location, the space will feature electrical outlets for work, study or meetings.

“In the four years AVOCA has been open, we have enjoyed being involved in the Fort Worth community and building great relationships with our customers and staff,” said Jimmy Story, co-founder with Garold LaRue. “We are excited to expand and have friends old and new stop by for a cup of coffee.”

The new location will add more than ten new jobs to the local economy, including a manager position for which AVOCA is currently hiring. AVOCA will be open Monday – Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. An opening date has yet to be announced.

Roger Chieffalo of Chieffalo Realty brokered the transaction, architect Rashmi Chandel of RashmiC is overseeing design, and Pete Jensen of Jensen Commercial is the general contractor.
