Bankers love coffee meetings, but for years their coffee options have been limited to bland coffee shops. Until now.

I hope Caribou Coffee has enjoyed owning the “Let’s meet for coffee” space because there’s a new sheriff in banker coffee meeting town.

Sure, maybe some people would venture to the Starbucks, but let’s get real – that space is way to cramped and pedestrian to talk serious bank talk. You really going to talk with your boss about the path from a band 5 to a band 4 in that Starbucks?! C’mon man.

Uptown coffee meeting bankers rejoice! Let me introduce you to Coco and the Director.

Goodbye Caribou, hello Coco.

Coco and the Director is everything you want in a coffee shop. Fancy coffee? Yes. Artisanal whatnot? Yes. Startup vibe? Yes. Free wi-fi? Yes. Luxurious seating? Yes. Inspirational quotes? Of course.

Seriously, it’s 7x cooler than the Caribou Coffee and 10x cooler than the Starbucks.

Conversation Topic: “I heard you bought an investment property in Plaza Midwood, how can I invest in residential real estate to create passive income?”
Area: Side Tables
