Weekly Coffee Bar at Mainframe Studios

Weekly Coffee Bar at Mainframe Studios Mainframe Studios + Happy Homes Coffee | 05/01/2023

Starting May 1st locally coffee roasting company Happy Home Coffee will have a weekly coffee bar in Mainframe Studios. 

Every Monday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Mainframe's 2nd floor elevator landing, Happy Home Coffee offers artists and the public a delicious menu of freshly brewed coffee drinks.

Customers are welcome to take advantage of Mainframe's 2nd floor common lounge area, and a coffee social hour each Monday at 11:00AM, which is programmed by Mainframe staff. Geared towards artists and entrepreneurs, the upcoming information sessions include:

  • Let's Make a Reel with Genevieve LaValle (May 8)
  • Writing an Artist Bio with Sabrina Carper (May 15)
  • Tips on Conducting Workshops with Katelyn Stessman (May 22)

With each floor now renovated, Mainframe was looking to foster ways for the creative community to build connections. "That's when we learned that Malique Miller of Ken Supply Co in Studio #235 is part owner of Happy Home Coffee," said Mainframe's Executive Director Siobhan Spain. "It was an easy win-win decision."  

Happy Home Coffee will move into a studio on Mainframe's 4th floor in the coming months.

About Happy Home Coffee

Co-owned by Malique Miller, Carlos Sims Jr, and Eliot Barker, Happy Home Coffee was created to cultivate joy and belonging.  Working with the motto of people over coffee,  the owners started Happy Home Coffee because coffee naturally creates spaces of happiness and connectivity. They long to belong to that community and participate in that work. This is why they say that they aren't simply in the coffee business, but see themselves as being in the people business. Find them at happyhomecoffee.com, on YouTube ... and at Mainframe every Monday!
