“Our opening day was  the day of the blizzard.  There were lots of people here to welcome us to Munjoy Hill,” said Amanda Kate Forman, co-owner of the new Double Great Coffee, 100 Congress Street this afternoon.  This afternoon when this blogger visited the new coffee shop, it  was packed with customers enjoying wellness lattes and pastries in the largely expanded venue.   The pastries are provided by Ilma Lopez, of the Ugly Duckling.  The coffee beans are from Central and South America.

It was  December of 2022 that the Hilltop Coffee Shop closed its doors. For just over a year the Hill has gone without a coffee shop – a very social community in need of a centrally located place for friends to gather.  As of eight days ago, area residents have gotten their gathering place back – and they  are embracing it.

Forman, who hails from southern Florida, has an educational background in anthropology.  Part of her studies in that field required field work in Costa Rica  “That education taught me how to think,” Amanda said. “I learned about critical thinkig – about all the angles in a situation.  It’s about meeting the needs of the people you serve.”

Double Great Coffee is open seven days a week from 6:30 am to 2:00 pm.
