Back in 2006, Joe Evans opened Nobrow Coffee & Tea serving highbrow coffee at a funky lowbrow location. Evans has been in the coffee biz since 1997.
Now in 2013, the coffee shop has reopened in what’s called the Central 9th district, and has been renamed Nobrow Coffee Werks, and Evans is now just the manager.
Evans sold his interest in the business to his partner Duffy Gallivan and a group of half a dozen silent partners. “I think I’d lose my spouse if I started another business. The last six years chewed me up and spit me out.” Joe and his wife have a two-year-old son.
Nobrow Coffee Werks is near a TRAX stop in a brand new building housing Atlas Architects and the coffee shop. “We always joked that they [Atlas] really asked us to come along because they wanted an office with a coffee shop next door.”
It’s a great thing Joe is still a big part of the new Nobrow.
