Urban Bean Coffee II (Under Construction)
24th Ave and Lyndale Ave. S, Minneapolis
Now, I don’t believe Greg Martin, the owner of Urban Bean, could have picked a better time and place to make his move on opening his second location in South Minneapolis. He was nice enough to meet with me and give me some insight on what they are putting together in this renovated Muddy Waters Cafe location. He has owned his original store at 33rd and Bryant Ave for over 15 years and has been striving to make a difference with coffee in the Twin Cities ever since. First off, having a passionate owner who is dedicated to the work they do is one of the most important platforms for a successful coffee shop in my opinion. There is no way anyone can progress and succeed without the persistence to do the very best they can. They will continue to serve Dogwood Coffee, which is a local specialty coffee shop that does micro roasting of some of the finest coffees you can find in the city. They plan for a July release of Urban Bean II and I will definitely be looking forward to my first visit.
