Tower Tuesday : Cafe Corazon
October 13, 2010 § 3 Comments
Fresh Roasted Coffee is what this place is all about. Leo, the owner and coffee lover behind Café Corazon, has a deep love affair with fresh coffee. What can you expect from Café Corazon? Well to start, it’s coffee is from all over the world and not only that, it’s all small farm, fair trade and organic!! Who doesn’t love organic these days, I mean…come on guys, ORGANIC! It’s the new thing circa 2006.
When I walked into Café Corazon I quickly realized this place is NOTHING like anything I’ve seen in Fresno. I mean, I was greeted by Leo who was behind a few tables roasting FRESH coffee -per order- that‘s cup by cup, folks. Nothing super fancy about this place, and I like that. It has a very chill, but welcoming atmosphere. You aren’t bombarded by annoying baristas and less than clever crappuccinos. No, no…at Café Corazon you are surrounded by local art, a hodgepodge of chairs and tables (but it totally works), and of course, coffee.
My experience with the coffee, and the company at Café Corazon was wonderful. I talked to Leo for a few minutes here and there as he was roasting some coffee beans. From what I gather, Leo has a deep respect for good, fresh coffee. As a Fresno Coffee Warrior (I’m gonna go ahead and give him that title) he knows the best way to roast, and he serves his unique cups of joe just right. He’s done his research and has taken his time to perfect his craft. I think it’s safe to say coffee is close to Leo’s heart (or Corazon). Leo’s passion to help the community is strong and he hopes to empower Fresno one cup at a time.
So if you’re in the mood to sit and relax while you let my friend, Leo roast you up a tasty coffee treat make sure to tell him I Heart Fresno sent you. And Café Corazon, this is our Heart to Heart…Job well done!
