NEVADA CITY, Calif. June 20, 2012 - Nevada City local Joshua Henry has opened Curly Wolf Espresso House, a fun new coffee shop on Broad Street, near Lefty's Grill and the National Hotel. They got the name "curly wolf" from old miner slang for a tough or rugged man. The general manager, Stephen, is an experienced barista. He takes much pride in their beautiful Slayer espresso machine, hand built by a two-man crew in Seattle.
They brew Caffé Vita coffee, a dark roast from a small company also from Seattle. At Caffé Vita, the coffee is roasted by hand in small batches on a 1930s Probat cast metal roaster The coffee is freshly ground cup-by-cup in a Mahlkönig coffee grinder. The German company founded in 1924 specializes in high-quality grinders that concentrate on emphasizing the natural flavors of the coffee.
This new coffee shop has a very comfortable and elegant atmosphere, with couches and window seat, perfect for reading a book or catching up with friends. Curly Wolf is set apart from the rest of the cafés in town by staying open late until midnight on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends. They hope to eventually stay open 24 hours in the summer. Curly Wolf will be a great place for locals and tourists to go after a late dinner or a movie. Check out more photos on our Flickr HERE.
The coffee shop held a soft opening tonight with live music at 7:30 with a $5 cover.
You can find Curly Wolf Espresso House at 217 Broad Street, Nevada City, California.
