Cleveland’s Bonlife Cafe will expand to open a second location in the Cleveland Public Library on Dec. 1.

In addition to offering coffee, the new cafe will have specialty teas, smoothies, sodas, freshly baked goods and fair trade products.

The new facility in the public library will offer ample seating, free Wi-Fi and unique brewing methods for the coffee.

To help celebrate the grand opening, the cafe will be giving away an office coffee party for a downtown business with some of Bonlife’s featured specialty drinks.


“We’re always looking for more and better ways to share our farm-direct coffees locally,” Erika Moore, Bonlife president, said in a prepared statement. “This location allows us to reach a segment of our community that may not have heard our story yet and help them understand the impact of their coffee purchases.”

In addition to selling much of the brewing equipment the cafe uses on-site, branded merchandise and fresh food will also be available for purchase.

The cafe will also host weekly brewing method demonstrations as well as educational classes on coffee and coffee-growing countries.
