I took a trip down to Chattanooga at the beginning of July, and had the opportunity, nay, the privilege to visit Cadence Coffee Company’s coffee shop. One Village Coffee has been working with Cadence since October 2011, and we have been/bean loving every minute of it.
Cadence’s owners Shannon Greer, Brian Turner, and Chris Turner contacted OVC in the late summer of 2011, and we began a dialogue about the possibility of working together. Rob and Woody were impressed with the shop and its owners, and all parties agreed that an OVC/Cadence coalition would be the best thing since roasted coffee. Rob and Woody took the initial trip to Cadence at the end of September, when they helped with staff training and set up machines.
While on my visit, I met one of their lovely baristas, Tasha. She served me some delicious iced coffee, and my husband tried an iced mocha. Cadence has a trendy and modern atmosphere, but manages to kick pretense to the curb at the same time. The shop has burlap bags from our coffee imports adorning its walls, and some handiwork done by our resident carpenter/coffee roaster Nelson is on display. His work has been showcased on our Facebook page from time to time. The people at Cadence (staff and customers alike) are friendly, and the coffee is brewed perfectly; truly a winning combination.
On a more bittersweet note, my husband said that he will forever be disappointed because that iced mocha was the best one he has ever had – let the search for an equivalent mocha begin!
Thanks to Cadence for welcoming this customer service/production assistant into their shop. I enjoyed my brief visit, and look forward to the next time I can drive 12 hours to visit again- hopefully for a longer stay.
