Buona Caffe Artisan Roasted Coffee only opened its coffee bar at 1858 Central Avenue on June 13 of this year, but has already garnered national recognition.

Fodor’s Travel, the prestigious travel guide, recently named Buona Caffe as one of America’s Top 15 Best Indie Coffee Shops.

John Curry, owner of Buona Caffe, said he was unaware the prestigious travel guide was planning to list them.

“The first clue I had was when someone from Random House (Fodor’s parent company) asked for photos,” Curry said. “We’re very excited and very humbled being in the company of these other coffee places.”

Although the coffee bar is new, Buona Caffe has been roasting coffee since 2010 and selling it by the bag. They also supply many of the restaurants in town.

They donate a portion of their proceeds to Children’s Safe Drinking Water, an organization that promotes clean water in developing nations. More children die from diseases associated with unsafe drinking water than any other cause.

Buona Caffe recently entered into a partnership with Edgar’s Grille to serve their pastries.
