erie island coffee company to open this week

East 4th Street is about to have a new resident. On February 19, the Erie Island Coffee Company will open its flagship shop.

Don’t expect this to be just another coffee house. Each latte and cappuccino is topped off with latte art, a practice created by delicately pouring micro-foamed milk over a rich, amber espresso’s crema. Erie Island baristas have received over 400 cumulative hours of training in this craft.

According to the release, the shop’s proprietary Northern Italian espresso roast is a blend of five quality green beans, smooth with caramel tones, no bitterness, a sweet cocoa finish. It is served in European café-style, with either a chocolate covered bean or a square of milk chocolate.

The shop will also offer fat-free, fruit puree smoothies, each topped with Italian granita, a flavored shaved ice. A selection of breakfast and all day sandwiches called Crushes will be available for dine in or take out. Crushes are oven-crisped bagels, sliced, turned inside out, layered with fresh and healthy ingredients, and then crushed and toasted on a Panini press (vegetarian versions are available). Soups and salads top off the menu.

Erie Island Coffee will be open Monday-Thursday 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m; free WIFI available.

Erie Island Coffee was founded in 2008 on Kelleys Island by two Cleveland advertising veterans, one of whom happens to be a good friend of ours, Martin Reuben.

Good luck, Martin – we wish you much success! The three of us will soon have a new coffee shop to enjoy Sunday mornings.
