Shenandoah Joe’s new location on Ivy Road in the former Java Java spot brings something new to Charlottesville – each cup is individually brewed – the beans are ground for each cup!
The real estate business is about social networking – on and off-line (as in “In Real Life”) – and frequently “off” meets “on” – for example, @steinarknutsen came into Shenandoah Joe’s this morning and said, “I knew you were here, I saw your tweet!“
Coffee shops are the new community hubs, offices, “home bases” for many people – particularly in a town populated by so many students, grad students, self-employed professionals, networkers and connectors.
I meet people – friends, clients, new people at Charlottesville’s coffee shops, and I’m grateful for the plethora of options we have.
The coffee is exceptional, the atmosphere is good, and the wi-fi is speedy.
Once Charlottesville’s OpenSpace opens, I’ll still visit coffee shops as often as possible.
Who needs an office?
