NEW: Dave’s Coffee to Open Craft Coffee Bar in Providence

Wednesday, April 09, 2014


Dave’s Coffee, a Rhode Island based craft coffee roaster and cafe, has announced it will open a custom-built craft coffee bar at 341 South Main Street in Providence. Dave's Coffee has selected Providence-based 3SixØ Architecture as its design-build partner for the project. Centrally located in the city’s Fox Point district, Dave’s Coffee Providence will serve area residents, professionals and students that desire locally roasted artisan coffee in an inviting environment.

“In a way, coffee has always thrived at the crossroads of tradition and innovation, where the heritage of roasting meets the latest brewing methods,” said Dave Lanning Junior, Co-founder and Director of Retail. "This theme runs throughout our bar from the handmade steel countertops to the custom built Slayer Espresso machine - the first in Rhode Island. Working with 3SixØ Architecture has allowed us to integrate community and craftsmanship into a design that is distinct, expressive and practical.”

Growth and expansion

This will be the second retail location and marks the company’s first stand-alone brick-and-mortar expansion. Dave’s Coffee Providence will feature a pour-over coffee bar, cold brew coffee on tap, and an extensive espresso drink menu. In addition, an interior retail section crafted of barn-board wood will display whole bean coffee and home brewing equipment.

“We focus on individual coffee regions that showcase the art of coffee. This location has an urban flair that celebrates our appreciation of small batch coffee roasting. 3SixØ Architecture is an instrumental partner that’s developing a purposeful space for the community to enjoy small-batch coffee preparations,” added David Lanning Senior, CEO and Founder of Dave’s Coffee.

Dave’s Coffee retail craft coffee bars focus on individual coffees and global regions that highlight individuality of coffee beans based on region or origin. The company’s explosive growth is fueled by demand for its small-batch coffee and all natural coffee syrup - both made by hand and packaged in Rhode Island.

3SixØ Architecture is a Providence-based architecture firm focused on simplicity and purpose. A number of practitioners at 3SixØ have ties to Rhode Island School of Design and Cornell University and actively teach on campus. The firm has designed admired properties such as STIX Restaurant and commercial locations in Boston’s Fort Point Channel District and Logan Airport.
