Harry Potter may drink butterbeer and pumpkin juice, but witch and wizard wannabes can get their fill of coffee in a new shop inspired by the series.

Fans are getting excited about a new coffee shop in Corpus Christi that's all about Harry Potter. Creatively named The Coffee MUGGle, the shop features Harry Potter decorations that were donated by people in the community.

"I'm proud of how the community has embraced me and my shop," said owner Susan Almaguer. "When I see those donations, it makes me feel like I've accomplished."

She said that's reflective of the shop's patrons, fans have bonded together by their love for the fictional wizard.

"I wanted to be able to connect with the community the only way I knew how... nerd fandom and coffee," Almaguer said.
You can check out the space on its Facebook page to see if you want to make the road trip to Corpus.
