Buona Caffe Cuts Ribbon on Downtown Location at Cyber Center
A local coffee shop unveiled a new location at the Hull McKnight Georgia Cyber Center on Thursday.
Buona Caffe, whose original location is on Central Avenue, announced the launch of its new coffee bar on Thursday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the main lobby of the cyber center.
The cyber center is located downtown at 100 Grace Hopper Ln.
“It says so much about the commitment of the Georgia Technology Authority and Augusta University to Augusta that they selected a local company for the coffee bar instead of a national chain,” said Buona Caffe co-owner Pat Curry after announcing the new shop over the summer. “This is an important investment in our local economy.”
Buona Caffe also purchased the building at 520 Reynolds St last October and plans to use the 8,400 square-foot building to expand its inventory and roasting operation.
“The Cyber Center is ushering in a new era in the life of downtown Augusta, and we are literally in on the ground floor,” Curry said.
Buona Caffe will be open on weekdays and will include a menu similar to the one at its 1858 Central Ave location.
