Monthly Mocha: Back of the Yards Coffeehouse

BackoftheYardsCoffeehouse-8.jpg

This is my new favorite coffee house. It's located in Back of the Yards which is where my father has one of his businesses. I worked right in the area for many years and I'm so excited that there's a great coffee shop with really good coffee in this area. 

The space is very urban modern with the walls painted my favorite blue. There's a really nice patio space which is perfect for the summer and fall. It's located right across the street from a school, so it gets busy after school gets out. They have a small parking lot in the back, but there's also street parking a few blocks away. 

The owners get their beans from a farmer in Mexico, and keep their family picture in the front of their store. They're passionate about offering a great coffee to a neighborhood that wouldn't normally see a shop like this. 

This is a great place to meet up with a friend. I especially enjoyed my hang out with fellow photographer Veronica Amador I also like to take the kids here in the morning for a cup of coffee and some lesson time. It's a few minutes from my father's shop, so it's nice to stop by after. :-D

I think we need more business owners who really care about their community and are going the extra mile to bring them quality products. 

Anyone want to visit this place? Let me know and we can make a coffee date.
