We previously announced that international coffee chainEspresso Americano
would open its first U.S. location in the Landmark development in the DTC. Now it looks like two of the cafes were in a race -- and another location opened first. Espresso Americano opened its first spot today in the nearby
, with the second to follow soon.
Espresso Americano is based in Honduras and operates 165 company-owned stores in that country as well as Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The company started out as a coffee grower 80 years ago and still grows 80 percent of its own coffee. Its first cafe opened in 1994. In addition espresso beverages and drip coffee, the cafe offers a small selection of breakfast and lunch items, desserts and house-made granitas.
