My name is Spencer Christian Black and I am the Artists Association Director at Anthem Coffee and Tea. The title is much longer and cooler than I really am but I’ll take what I can get. I love coffee, I drink it everyday. I love music, I am always listening to it. Getting to do a job where both are combined is one of the most amazing things I have ever got to be a part of. Anthem is much more than just a coffee shop.
It is a hub of musicians, artists, business, friends, net workers, and individuals getting together with one common denominator: Coffee. its an excuse to get half an hour of a pretty girls time. It’s a comfortable place to meet with a future business partner, and It is so much more than meets the eye.
We have hosted an incredibly wide array of future rock stars, to people who will never go farther than an open mic. Either way, we are a stage, mic, and iced vanilla latte better than any other set of walls on the west coast. I have had the pleasure of traveling near and far meeting amazing people and sampling coffee from around the world. Everyone does it a little different we just do it a little better, or sure as hell try our hardest to.
You will ALWAYS be greeted with a smile and a friendly and sometimes loud hello and the best cup of coffee around. In fact, you are only reading this because our website caught you eye and hopefully we’ll catch the vote of YOUR coffee shop, a place to call your own (claim us! we don’t mind).
Getting to help build this place from the ground up was exhausting but watching it become the busiest most fun place to be has been incredibly rewarding. We have something most places can’t offer, you just need to find out for yourself.
We always have music but we wanna hear yours, open mic is on Monday, ill be there waiting…with a doppio and a microphone.
