“We really want you to enjoy the experience and really taste the different nuances that specialty coffee has. When this opportunity came, we decided to shut down the bulk warehouse strictly do our manufacturing there but bring the people here. Why not? It’s a beautiful space. There’s so much history in our San Antonio city. And we want to be able to be that light to the tourists, to the local neighborhood, and to anybody that really appreciates what we do, because we do it with passion and love! Yeah, so today we’re doing a brunch – very first time we’ve ever hosted a brunch in a retail space: coffee, eats, conversations – that’s what we’re shooting for here at the Aiden. We just want to share the best of coffees around the world, with some of the greatest people around the world (who happen to live here in San Antonio and visit San Antonio, Texas!)”
