On July 5, 2018, Commonplace Coffee officially joined the Point Breeze community. We’ve always been in love with the neighborhood and were excited by the opportunity to open a Commonplace Coffee shop in the space formerly occupied by Make Your Mark Artspace & Coffeehouse. Make Your Mark had been serving the community for many years and Commonplace was honored to carry on the tradition in its seventh retail location.
The beautiful launch of Commonplace Coffee in Point Breeze was the result of a team effort lead by the shop manager, Dave Smallhoover. Dave had previously been involved in operating a coffee house and had become part of the Commonplace family through his work in the Mexican War Street shop and Commonplace Roastery. Friends and colleagues know Dave for his desire to promote awareness and education around sustainable coffee sourcing and production by building meaningful relationships with coffee farmers and producers at origin.
