Saturday, September 24 we opened SONDER Coffee softly to celebrate with and serve our friends and family. We were so thankful to be sharing the beginning of a dream with those who had contributed to our success in their own ways throughout this challenging and rewarding year, supporting us with encouragement, advice, prayers, help, friendship, and mentorship to say the least. We made our first drinks, and for the first time saw SONDER full of people– smiling, sharing stories, sipping coffee… it was an inspiring and fulfilling sight to see. To look around the room and see the meaning of SONDER come to life is intense and surreal, and I can’t believe this is just the beginning. This left us even more excited to celebrate again with more special people at our SONDER Coffee Grand Opening!
SONDER Coffee Grand Opening
A week after our soft opening, we drove to the shop early, pumped with adrenaline, nervousness, and a list of last-minute to-dos. Before we knew it, we already had a line forming the minute we opened. 6:30am! The rest is a blur: lines to the door, serving deliciousness, running around with a collected craziness… and then meeting so many people! It was so great to even meet a handful of people that have been following our story HERE on Dream|a|Latte, like Lauren, Rachel, and Becca– who was visiting from Vegas and is starting Insomniac’s Dream Coffee Lounge— how awesome are you guys! And major thanks to our favorite local ice cream spot– High Point Creamery, for joining in on the fun. It really felt like a party all day!
