Its first Albany spot, opened in 2010, is located at 1038 Madison Avenue, near the Madison Theater. Its new acquisition also is theater-centric, located adjacent to the Spectrum Theater -- whose owners created the Ultraviolet Cafe -- at 292 Delware Avenue.
“Like our first shop, this new location ... is ideally located right next to the Spectrum 8 Theater, making it a great stop before or after a show,” says CEO Darren Grout. “We look forward to continuing to expand in the Albany area and strengthen our relationships in the community.”
Tierra Coffee Roasters features 100% Fair Trade organic coffee, including specialty and seasonal blends, roasted fresh five days a week in micro-lots here at its main facilitty. Lattes, teas, espresso, mochas and other drinks also are on the menu. Free public coffee tastings also will be offered.
Both locations -- the Ultraviolet will be renamed Tierra Coffee Roasters -- will serve breakfast sandwiches, paninis and salads, as well as homemade soups and baked goods made using farm-fresh products, organic and vegan ingredients.
Tierra Coffee Roasters is owned by the same principals as Tierra Farm, a producer of USDA-certified organic foods, including dry-roasted and raw nuts and seeds, unsulfured dried fruit, granola and trail mixes, and nut butters, as well as Fair Trade coffee and chocolate. Tierra Farm was named one of the "Best Places to Work" in the Albany area in 2012 by The Business Review.
