Thank you very much and we'll see you around Brown!
OCTOBER: GOOD COFFEE & GOOD FOOD
Fun is finding good people doing the same thing you're doing, only with a different medium. That is why it is such a pleasure when comity matures into collaboration. Brown is very pleased to announce a new collaboration at our 1800 Broadway location with Louis Singh and Eric Trevino, co-proprietors of Singh's Vietnamese, a mobile food trailer that has been enjoying some plenty great buzz of late in and around San Antonio.
Fresh. Exotic. Delicious. Fun. All of these descriptors only begin to capture the experience of your first bite from this unassuming mobile trailer. Digital images can only take one so far, but it's worth starting the ball rolling with these mouth-watering bee-yoots.
Catfish Banh Mi
The Singhs guys are participating in two types of events at Brown 1800. Every other Monday, beginning Monday, OCTOBER 7 they will be parked at the corner of 1800 Broadway and Grayson from 7p-9ish pm doing lite fare like Banh Mi (traditional Vietnamese sandwich with fresh ingredients on fresh French demi-baguettes) and a rotating variety of delectable noodle bowls, rice dishes, fresh egg rolls and the bestest Vietnamese Iced Tea you've ever had. Seriously good and super easy to pick up on your way home. (Ed. Note: 1800 Broadway hosts a fairly stellar rotating cast of mobile food vendors every Monday and Thursday evening, 6p-9p.)
The other event is VIETNAMESE-STYLE BRUNCH, and happens every other Sunday, beginning Sunday, OCTOBER 13. For brunch the Singhs trailer will be parked directly in front of Brown 1800 from 10a-2p and will be slightly more sit-down style foods: Pho; Viet-crepes (savory and sweet) and the like. Brown will put on the coffee (including a special coffee offering only served at these brunch events) and everyone is invited to order from one place or the other--or both--and sit inside our cafe or on our outside patio in the glorious South Texas autumn weather.
EVENINGS: 6p-9p at Broadway and Grayson
BRUNCH: 10a-2p in front of Brown 1800
Hope to see you there.

BROWN WELCOMES MAYOR CASTRO
Everybody loves a somebody. And Brown was pleased and honored to welcome Mayor Julian Castro to our cafe this week as he helped us celebrate grand openings for the 1800 Broadway project. He spent a few minutes at our brand new cafe with Aaron Blanco, President of Brown Coffee Company, chatting and learning a bit about the art and science of craft coffee at Brown. The mayor was gracious in his compliments and said he might just stop in for a coffee sometime. We think he's a perfect match for our delicious cappuccino.
PRESIDENT AND MAYOR. Aaron Blanco, President of Brown Coffee Co. with the Honorable Julian Castro, Mayor of San Antonio.
DID YOU KNOW?
You can order your coffee beans online and pick them up at either of our cafes? We usually stock most of our coffees fresh at least once a week at both cafes, so you're never far from a roast date. But occasionally we are sold out of something you came in for. Never fear. You can order from our 100% secure Online Shopping Cart and we'll roast it for you to pick up within 48 hours (often within 24 hours).
It's easy. Visit our Online Shopping Cart and select the item(s) you want. When you get to the section for shipping, simply choose "Local Pickup" as your shipping option. We'll get an email notification of your order and either pull a freshly roasted bag from the shelves or roast it fresh if it's not in stock. Then we'll send you an email telling you your coffee has "shipped," which is your notification that you can swing by at your convenience to get your coffee. NOTE: You'll want to make sure you let us know which of our two locations you wish to pick up your coffee from (1800 Broadway or HQ), so we'll have it ready when you are. There is a comments section in the ordering process where you can tell us which cafe you'll pick up from.
And that's it. Fresh coffee is never far away at Brown Coffee Co. See you here soon!
