I’m a Slowpoke.

Sales staff cannot live at anything less than the speed of light, but occasionally there is a need to slow down.  Alpha’s Jeff Wilt and Sean Bowman have been known to break bread at Slowpokes, and it is a real treat as “locally sourced” is a keystone of the establishment. The coffee is wonderful as well – fresh, strong, and sufficient caffeine to get both of them up to warp speed again.

George Coffee + Provisions – Coppell, TX

Alpha TestingNeed a good spot for a group meeting? You might want to try George Coffee + Provisions in Coppell. This coffee shop sits in Old Town Coppell among new row houses, restaurants, and a park. What makes GCP unique is the structure itself – the coffee shop is built inside a large, white house. The Carriage House pairs coffee with community, offering its patrons with ample seating inside, a library, and an outdoor courtyard. The library can be reserved up to four hours and can seat 10 around a large farm table. Good coffee AND a private library to meet in? That’s a win.

Peridot Coffee – Dallas, TX

Alpha TestingCoffee doesn’t always have to come from the break room. If you want to add some pizazz to your morning fuel, try Peridot Coffee, located right across the street from our Dallas office – doesn’t get much closer than that! Peridot boasts a similar menu to Brand S and serves up all the coffee, espresso, and tea you could want. Try the green tea flat, a three-layered drink that combines matcha green tea, espresso, and steamed milk (the latte and café mocha also get two thumbs up). Try some on the go the next trip to the office!

Theory Coffee – San Antonio, TX

Alpha TestingFor a quick coffee grab, try Theory Coffee in San Antonio. No concrete slab for this shop because it sits on wheels instead. Theory Coffee is a mobile trailer that serves up some high quality, local brew roasted in Round Rock, TX. Track the trailer on their website, but most days it sits on the southwest corner of I-410 and Nacogdoches Road. Try it on your next commute!
