Allegro Coffee is expanding from roasting to serving. The company's beans are already available at Whole Foods, as well as at a small shop in the Adams 12 administration building in its home base of Thornton. And next month, Allegro will open a stand-alone coffee shop in a a 4,000 square-foot space that had been a former hardware store on Tennyson treet in the hot Berkeley area. Says Michael:
I was just thinking that neighborhood needed another hipster magnet.
We need this, why? Tennyson already has two coffee shops.
What do you think of the developments on Tennyson Street? What's your go-to coffee spot?
