CLEVELAND — A local coffee shop, despite its brick and mortar location being temporarily closed, is keeping Cleveland caffeinated, adapting to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pour Cleveland’s shop on Euclid Avenue has been closed due to COVID-19 concerns and the impacts of the virus, but it continues to sell its popular roasts online.
“Coffee to me, and to many other people, is a morning ritual. I am so excited about some of the coffees we have that I look forward to it before I even go to sleep the night before,” said Charlie Eisenstat, the owner of Pour Cleveland. “It’s always good to get people a coffee that they're going to be really happy with and really excited about drinking in the same way.”
Eisenstat isn’t sure when the brick and mortar location will reopen because it depends on how the pandemic develops.
Pour Cleveland relies heavily sporting events, tourism and the downtown workforce to fuel its revenue, all which still are far from back to normal.
In the meantime though, the coffee shop is open for business online.
"Since we couldn’t be open to the pubic we decided to ramp up our e-commerce and our website," Eisenstat said. “You can order fresh roasted coffee from these roasters that we bring in and then ship. So you can sort of do what you did coming into Pour and build your own multi-roaster box.”
