Comings & Goings: Downtown getting more caffeinated

Pachamama Coffee Cooperative is returning to Davis, bringing another coffeehouse downtown. It fills the former Subway欧洲杯竞猜 sandwich spot at 130 G St.

The cooperative ran a Davis coffee bar inside Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St., from late 2013 to early 2016, but lost its lease. It has a booth on Saturday mornings at the Davis Farmers Market欧洲杯竞猜, which it plans to continue.

Pachamama was the first café in the United States “to be 100 percent owned by coffee farmers in Latin America and Africa,” it says. It has two cafés in Sacramento: 3644 J St. and 919 20th St. One of its first bean customers was the Davis Food Co-op in 2006.

欧洲杯竞猜CEO and co-founder Thaleon Tremain said he hopes to open the Davis café this spring. “We will be returning with a stronger team and a bigger, complete café. In addition to Pachamama’s unique ownership structure, I believe we’ll be the only coffee shop in Davis dedicated to brewing 100% Certified Organic coffee.”

When it left the Davis gallery space, Tremain said it was “successful by all accounts,” and noted his plans to look for another suitable spot. “We love Davis and the community that helped to create Pachamama.”

With Pachamama’s addition, there will be eight coffeehouses in the 3-by-9-block downtown core, including: Temple, Philz, Mishka’s, Starbucks, Peet’s, Cloudforest and Barista Brew. These don’t count the cafés where coffee isn’t the main staple. The location close to the Amtrak station should be a good one, however.
