LiveWire Owner Mike Walsh is excited to have finally found a permanent home for LiveWire Coffee in Midtown.
“We are opening up our shop in Midtown Atlanta late summer at the Coda Building,” LiveWire Coffee posted to its website. “Catering is also making a come back and we have expanded our menu. As we get our shop open, it will further expand our food menu.”
Permits filed with the city show that LiveWire is planning on constructing the new coffee cafe inside the lobby of the Coda Building. Electrical and mechanical equipment will be installed in the parking garage directly below the coffee cafe.
Walsh said it feels great to get to this point. The coffee shop plans to open sometime in June.
“It feels pretty awesome and I’m just anxious to get in,” he said. “I have been in coffee my entire life.”
LiveWire Coffee is an Atlanta-based mobile espresso caterer that uses locally roasted coffee. LiveWire Coffee partnered with Docent Coffee in Old Fourth Ward to provide a fair and organic blend of Tanzanian and Peruvian coffee for its espresso. It also uses a Brazilian and Guatemalan blend for its drip coffee.
“I think Midtown needs more specialty coffee,” Walsh said. “I think the tech students need more specialty coffee. I think there is definitely a need in Midtown for higher quality coffee. ”
LiveWire Coffee will be on Peachtree Street NW just outside of Georiga Tech.
“We’ll have creative and specialty drinks to give it new flair and I think we’ll fit in well with the area we’re in,” Walsh added.
