A new coffee shop is under construction in the former Hilltop Coffee location on Munjoy Hill. Double Great Coffee (website, instagram) is being launched by Carolyn and Michael Force, the co-owners of Portland Dry Goods with Amanda Foreman from Abura Skincare. They hope to open before Memorial Day.
They will be offering a full coffee program and plan to be a multi-roaster shop featuring a rotating selection of coffees from American and European coffee roasteries. The overall aim is to be a comfortable neighborhood spot for the community.
Renovations are just getting underway. When completed the new coffee shop will seat approximately 25 with a dedicated children’s area and plans for outdoor seating in the warmer months.
The adjacent space in the building is being taken over by Abura Skincare which is moving to the hill from Deering Center. As part of a collaboration between the two businesses the Double Great menu will include some Abura-designed wellness drinks.
