SMYRNA, GA – Smyrna has a new coffeehouse in the neighborhood. To celebrate the opening on March 27, 2004, festivities will include free drip coffee, an appearance by Smyrna’s mayor, balloons for kids, prize giveaways, and entertainment in the evening. There will also be a “Guess the Number of Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans in the Jar” contest. CoffeeNet is located at 3100 Highlands Parkway, near the intersection of South Cobb Drive and Highlands Parkway.
“We are very excited to open our first store,” says co-owner Gayle Link. “Our goal here at CoffeeNet is to provide inspirational customer service in a comfortable atmosphere. CoffeeNet is committed to meeting the needs of our customers while using top quality ingredients. We also believe in fast, consistent drink preparation.”
A coffee and technology fusion concept, CoffeeNet is a coffee shop that features fresh, gourmet coffee as well as a business productivity center. Patrons can surf the Internet for free or check email while sipping on a latte or eating a delicious piece of cake. You can bring in your own laptop or utilize CoffeeNet’s computers. On the menu are several coffee varieties, including fair trade, organic coffees, espresso-based beverages such as lattes and cappuccinos, flavored coffees, teas, smoothies and bakery items such as cookies, cakes, and muffins. “In addition to surfing the Internet, customers can utilize many other services. They can make color copies, order business cards and stationary, use our mailbox services, work on a document in Microsoft Word or send a fax. CoffeeNet also has a large training room and two smaller rooms that can be used for meetings. Or, you can just sit back and relax while enjoying your coffee,” says Link.
CoffeeNet is not your typical coffeehouse. Housed in a new shopping center on Highlands Parkway, right off of South Cobb Drive, the main dining room features warm, subdued lighting, tables and chairs, as well as other comfortable seating options. Towards the back of the shop are two rooms that offer privacy for patrons seeking to have a small private meeting, or perhaps lounge and read a book while enjoying a French roast. Behind those rooms are the main computer room and the large training room. The training room is the perfect size for many different types of events – club meetings, Bible studies, seminars, lectures, classes, or even a bridal shower or tea or poetry reading. “We really look forward to serving Smyrna and the metro Atlanta area and hosting events at our shop,” says Link. The coffee and business productivity combination was a concept that came naturally to CoffeeNet’s owners, Gayle Link and Panya Lei Yarber. CoffeeNet’s owners were known to drink coffee late into the evening, while working. But like many, they were also known to relax and chat over a cup of coffee as well. “We hope that people will come here to work, but also to unwind, play and socialize.”
CoffeeNet is privately held. Founded in 2003, CoffeeNet is a coffee and technology fusion concept in the metro Atlanta area. For more information about CoffeeNet, call 404-794-7744 or visit http://www.coffee-net.net/
