Molten Java Grand Re-Opening Saturday
Bethel, CT - In keeping with the near tropical heat wave we’ve been enjoying recently, Molten Java, Connecticut Magazine’s “best coffee bar” for three years running, will be celebrating their grand re-opening Hawaiian style this Saturday. The newly renovated space at 213 Greenwood Avenue is just down the hill from their old location in downtown Bethel where they’ve been serving up coffee, baked goods, kitschy gift items, local artwork, and entertainment for the last eight years.
Owner Wendy Cahill is excited about the additional space and southern exposure the new building offers. “The move to a brighter, more open spot has been long overdue” Cahill says. “It will serve both our customers and employees well”. Despite the change in venue, she promises the personality of Molten Java will remain the same: a community oriented business that welcomes Bethel residents and all others to share and exchange opinions and ideas, a place where performers and artists can display their talents, and a spot where moms, dads, and their kids can simply stop in and enjoy some playtime away from home.
Oh, and let’s not forget the coffee. Served up by efficient, polite, and well trained baristas, Molten Java’s selection of fresh roasted coffees, espresso, lattes, and tea are what keep their stable of faithful customers coming back. New on-site roasters will ensure that the tradition of fresh high quality coffee will be offered along with an expanded menu of baked goods, local pastries, and wraps. “Our additional space and cooking equipment now offers Molten Java the opportunity to offer some new culinary delights” Cahill adds.
As for Saturday’s event, the Hawaiian theme serves two purposes; First, in keeping with Molten Java’s reputation for doing things a little differently, why not have some fun? “We are planning on making this a luau and we’re encouraging everyone who stops by to wear their Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, and coconut attire” Wendy says. “But, more importantly, this is our way to say Mahalo (thank you) to our loyal customers and Aloha (hello) to folks who haven’t discovered us yet.”
A formal ribbon cutting ceremony with Town officials and Chamber of Commerce members will take place at 11:00AM.
