How can your peaceful morning, incredible sunrise and warm water get any better? For many the answer is a hot cup of Starbucks Coffee, a staple in the morning routine of quite a few of us. Now Valentine Resort has a new neighbor that you are just going to have to meet.
Perched on the second floor of one of Valentine’s historic and recently restored building just south of the pool area is the soon to be famous coffee house, Cocoa.
Owners Ryan and Gem Austin opened the Cocoa Coffee House in late December once they received their espresso machine and supplies from Starbucks. This real Starbucks experience includes WiFi and power outlets in the seating area, but not the usual fast paced crowd and road traffic associated with the Starbucks corner store. At the Cocoa Coffee House there is an incredible view of the picturesque Valentine’s marina and unlimited relaxation.
Ryan and Gem didn’t stop here. In addition to the “We Proudly Serve” Starbucks licensed brand meaning they use all Starbucks products and recipes, they have expanded on their coffee cuisine by including drinks made with fresh ground Lavazza coffee beans. Lavazza is the most popular coffee brand in Italy and is an added treat to any coffee lover’s menu.
Cocoa offers the perfect environment to host small business meetings, creative minds social interactions or just simple relaxation with the world’s favorite hot or iced coffees. So enjoy your peaceful sunrise with a cup of your favorite coffees exquisitely prepared at the Cocoa Coffee House and Valentine’s Resort & Marina.
Cocoa’s is open Monday through Saturday 7 am to 5:30 pm and on Sundays from 7 am to 1 pm.
