Ignited by a genuine Texas pioneer spirit, Summer Moon Coffee has etched its name in the world of authentic coffee crafting, primarily through its unique oak-roasted brewing. The family-owned brand's dream of creating a distinctive coffee experience sparked a vibrant community of coffee enthusiasts who value their coffee roasted traditionally over wood fire. The journey began with a local auction in 2002, where a winning bid on coffee equipment led to the establishment of their first coffee shop and subsequently, the Summer Moon Coffee Bar in 2005.
Summer Moon's growth story reflects years of craftsmanship perfection and a rising local demand that fueled expansion across Texas, and beyond. Their coffee beans are still roasted in Austin, TX, in the same wood-fired brick ovens, adhering to the time-honored process established by 19th-century coffee masters. The family, now in its second generation, remains dedicated to their craft, hand-roasting small batches of the finest beans over seasoned Texas post oak.
But what sets Summer Moon Coffee apart is their signature sweet cream, Moon Milk. This magical formulation is a story of midnight alchemy, perfected under a summer moon. Created to complement the oak-roasted undertones of their coffees rather than overtaking them, Moon Milk is the perfect companion to their wood-fired espresso in the Summer Moon Latte. As Summer Moon Coffee, with its rich tradition and expanding reach, opens its new location on Greenville's Mills Ave, they bring their unique coffee experience and the magic of Moon Milk to yet another thriving coffee community.
