Bold, Bad Ass Hospitalians
Coffeebar is the fuel that propels you throughout your day. Inspired by the Italian coffeebar culture, we believe we are Hospitalians first, baristas and chefs second. Making people feel good is our M.O. Founded in Truckee, CA in 2010, Coffeebar was built off of over two decades of coffee industry knowledge. But at the end of the day, we're only as good as the next cup we make.
Community is the family YOU choose
Free of pretence. Full of Heart!
In early 2010, after fifteen years in the industry, it was time to do coffee differently. After a trip to India (yes, India) Buchheister hit the open road in search of the perfect spot for his new concept. He landed in Truckee, California, an area he loved visiting over the years to see his ski racing friends. Coffeebar was born in October 2010 on a back street in Truckee in an old tin garage. With its rustic modern design and a strong belief in local, high quality food and sustainable practices, Coffeebar transformed Jibboom Street into a bustling haven for the community of Tahoe’s North Shore. But nothing that is easy is ever worth doing and challenges are where you grow. After three bad winters and the constant seasonal swings in Tahoe, it was time to expand into a more consistent market. Nestled in Midtown, Coffeebar Reno opened in early 2014 and has since become an institution to the neighborhood and the Reno community as a whole. “We brought specialty coffee to Reno in a way that it hadn’t been executed before. Free of pretension and full of heart,” says Buchheister. Coffeebar continues to grow, expanding to cafes in Squaw Valley, Menlo Park and Redwood City, a bakery in Truckee and a roastery in Midtown Reno. Each location with its own character has been built with the same heart and principles of hospitality, excellence, and a strive for continuous improvement. “We are only as good as the day we are open,” says Buchheister. “But looking back on 20 years in the coffee business, Coffeebar is definitely my hit record."
Never break a sweat.
Sprezzatura is the art of making something difficult seem effortless and easy. It’s the invisible hand of a gracious Hospitalian that seamlessly executes a perfect meal, a delicious cup of coffee and a great experience with grace and charm. The Italians call it culture. Magicians call it magic. We call it our special sauce.
Going Full Circle
With the awareness of the daily footprint coffee shops leave behind, we do our best to minimize that through sustainable business practices including responsibly sourcing our coffee, partnering with local farms and businesses, and giving back our coffee grounds and food waste to the farms to feed the soil.
