Newport News, VA Feature: Canvas Coffeehouse

Take a Chelsea art gallery, cozy living room, vibrant co-working space and smash it with amazing coffee and hospitality…and you’ve got Canvas Coffeehouse in Newport News, Virginia. So delighted to find this cafe and be so taken care of by Alex and Jordan behind the bar. They crafted two drinks with alt milks – A well balanced cortado and the “Hedgehog” complete with house made syrups with Valrhona and hazelnut oil. I loved the neighborhood cafe vibe – it was packed full with university students and local professionals with a book signing in the corner. This cafe has a chic and comfortable space to spend time in if you’re ever in Newport News, Virginia. 

It was also fun to nerd out with the coffee expert on the team. Thanks Alex  for the small sneak peek at the Guatemala Huehuetenango roast – definitely had those baseline cocoa notes, but it also had a distinct brightness with more floral notes than milk chocolate! Hope y’all will be able to try this soon too.
