You'll Soon Be Able to Drink Rosella Coffee Inside 2 H-E-Bs



Rosella Coffee Co. has been busy expanding its reach across San Antonio, and owner Charles Gonzalez shared news of more locations on the way.

The coffee company will open small "Rosella Express" locations inside former IBC Bank spaces at the Alon and Lincoln Heights H-E-Bs. Both clock in at approximately 400 square feet, so he expects construction to be minimal. The company is working with Patrick Winn of Total Art Design & Architecture or TADA for short, to design the wee shops where they'll offer espresso, drip coffee, iced coffee, teas, and a small variety of to-be-determined pastries by The Bread Box (he mentioned kolaches and possibly breakfast tacos).

The shops won't have any seating, but both H-E-Bs offer cafe areas for customers and partners to enjoy their brews.

Rosella first opened in May 2014 off Jones and became a hit with downtown dwellers for their airy space, coffee and food menu. Rosella Coffee beans are available at Central Market, Blue Star Provisions and Henrietta's at La Cantera Resort and Spa.
