In case you thought the new Santos in Altadena Square was huge news, get ready for this one. Acclaimed Uptown and Hoover venue Santos Coffee has just announced four new locations in the Birmingham area. While the details surrounding three of the locations are still a mystery, we found out that Homewood would be the first.

These roasters focus on “harvesting to cup” coffee with roasting farms in San Antonio, Santa Margarita and San Nicolás. These Birmingham companies are not to be missed. Grab a cup for an afternoon pick-me-up today! Our recipe: the Iced Basil Lavender Latte!
