Can you believe it? The end of summer is this week, and that means so too ends the Build-Outs of Summer. Sunrise, sunset. But we still have a few more tricks up our sleeve for you this week. The first of which hails from upstate New York: Second Wind Coffee in Johnstown.
A multi-roaster—including some international options—Second Wind Coffee is bringing delicious coffee to the upstate area and serving it from a brand new Slayer Steam X. Relaxed and rustic meets international and high tech, that’s what Second Wind is bringing to Johnstown, New York.
As told to Sprudge by Shawn Beebie.
For those who aren’t familiar, will you tell us about your company?
We’re, Second Wind Coffee. We’re located in upstate New York, in the heart of the historical city of Johnstown. We will serve handcrafted coffees, espresso, tea, smoothies, and food. Our food menu will be seasonal with ingredients provided by local farmers. Whole bean, ground coffee, and brewing accessories will be available for purchase.
Can you tell us a bit about the new space?
