Coma Coffee Roasters is getting ready to expand its brand. The company, which also has a location at 1034 S. Brentwood Blvd. in Richmond Heights, plans to open a second cafe at 4013 Papin St., on the eastern edge of The Grove.

Owner Macy Holtzman said she’s in the process of approving architectural drawings and hopes to start construction by the end of the year. The space is currently being used as Coma’s roasting facility. “My goal is to be open by spring,” Holtzman said.

To get customers engaged in the process, the roaster will be visible to the dining area. The menu will include hand brews, pour-overs and a selection of craft cocktails. Holtzman said she plans on having approximately 50 seats, and there’s a potential for mezzanine seating as well.

“It’ll be an extension of what we have now, just offering customers a different experience,” Holtzman said.

There will also be a full kitchen. “We’re going to keep the menu really small, but super fresh and seasonal, and keep as many of the ingredients local as possible,” she said.

Holtzman’s family owns the building, and plans to convert the rest of it into a boutique hotel or apartments, with additional retail space on the first floor.

“We’re talking to some breweries about their interest in moving in, and other craft specialty shops,” she said.

The Scoop: Coma Coffee to open in Brentwood

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Brentwood will have a new place to get its java jolt come Aug. 1 when Coma Coffee opens at 1034 S. Brentwood Blvd., in University Tower. Siblings Corbin and Macy Holtzman have tapped Kaldi’s veteran Chad Denney to head up the roasting program.

“There is demand for a coffee shop in the building,” said Macy Holtzman. “People in St. Louis are developing a taste for really good coffee thanks to other industries like the craft beer movement.”

Upon opening, Coma will serve mainly beans from Ethiopia, El Salvador and Colombia with plans to rotate its selection based on customer reaction and sourcing. Holtzman said the 50-seat shop will focus on speed, serving drip coffee and espresso drinks. Whisk will provide grab-and-go pastries at the shop.

Growth is the goal for the Holtzmans, who also own a roasting facility at 4013 Papin St., in The Grove and plan to eventually open a tasting room there that will offer pour-overs and other third-wave coffee brewing methods, as well as opportunities to learn about coffee production and roasting. “We hope to be one of the top quality roasters in St. Louis,” said Holtzman said. “We want people to know our brand and know that we’re doing everything at a high level.”
