Nothing quite like a new cafe can create such a buzz (or even a jitter in those not used to caffeine) in a community. In the age of Instagram, and a seeming obsession with beautiful cafes (or more generally, eating out), creating a place which gets the 'formula' just right can spell success.
With a type of industrialist design and a Danish-Japanese sensibility, the raw materials in the space give Grouch & Co both its photogenic quality and warmth. The space's main feature is perhaps Truck Furniture's leather chair. The Japanese furniture company (whose philosophy is about as beautiful as the products it produces) share a similar value in the well made, and highly considered. However, the cafe does have some substance beyond its interiors. It is a micro roaster; and the workings of this happens while you sip from one of their handmade ceramic cups.
