Coffee fanatics can look forward to a new location of Jo's Coffee with a drive-thru.
The new location, located in the Hyde Park area on 41st and Red River streets, will open in early 2021. It will be the coffee shop's third location and the only location with a drive-thru.
Jo's coffee opened its first location on South Congress—known now for the "I love you so much" mural—in 1999, and has since expanded to three coffee shops around town: 242 W. 2nd St., St. Edwards University campus and the upcoming one on 41st St. and Red River.
Besides having the usual coffee fix, Jo's Coffee offers tacos, sandwiches and snacks for the ultimate breakfast experience (or late-afternoon snack).
Along with bringing a new location to Austin, Jo's Coffee recently teamed up with La Colombe to create a new specialty house blend, according to the Austin Chronicle. The local blend has notes of milk chocolate, nuts and honey and can be enjoyed in any coffee drink. You can purchase this blend online and at all Jo's Coffee locations, as well as at select Bunkhouse Group hotel lobby shops.
