When your hometown has not just one, but TWO specialty coffee shops open, you know awareness and buzz around it is being built just as quickly. Opening earlier this year in Central Fremont, Slapface Coffee & Tea brings hip, modern industrial vibes and some wonderfully crafted beverages for its customers to enjoy.
Upon entering the shop, you will immediately notice the unique murals painted elegantly and intentionally on the shop’s walls. There are plenty of seating areas for you to choose from. Whether you plan to grab a delicious cup of coffee and people watch, enjoy conversation with friends, or conduct your work-from-home sessions at Slapface, the store has ample amounts of space!
To place the cherry on top, Slapface Coffee also provides free wifi AND free co-working spaces (as long as it’s booked in advance). Are you an aspiring entrepreneur who wishes to meet with your fellow colleagues in a quiet, private conference room, all fully equipped with TV’s and chairs? Are you a student who has an extracurricular club to run after school? OR, are you simply someone who feels like a BOSS and wishes to have your own space to work? Book your room in advance with a barista or manager, and you’ve got yourself a space (ask for time allotment details)!
OKAY, now let’s dive into what you’ve all been waiting for: the coffee! Although quite new to the specialty coffee game, Slapface hosts coffee from well-known San Jose based coffee roasting company, Chromatic Coffee. From carrying coffee from a well-known roasting company to baristas preparing espresso on a La Marzocco GB/5, you’re sure to receive quality drinks!
As for the ambiance and drink variety, Slapface is sure to please the specialty coffee connoisseur with dialed in espresso drinks and made-to-order pour over single origin coffees. While pleasing this crowd, customers who aren’t familiar with the specialty coffee scene are also catered to, having Tcho mochas and even delicious Red Velvet Lattés to choose from. Along with specialty coffee drinks, Slapface also provides tea as well as ice cream from San Francisco based Mitchell's Ice Cream, being sure to please customers of all ages.
A great feature of Slapface Coffee & Tea is that it’s one of the VERY few, if not the only coffee shop in Fremont to stay open until 12am on a daily basis (yes, even Sundays)! So if you prefer working late or simply want some delectable caffeine, Slapface is your go-to specialty coffee shop.
I absolutely love the hospitality that the owners, Mike and Yelena Rozeblum, and baristas exude on a daily basis. They certainly win customers and I highly recommend visiting the shop while in Fremont!
I hope everyone’s week is going swell and until the next installment, cheers!
