Coffee a go go
With plans for Royal Oak and Birmingham locations to open by fall, New Order Coffee Roasters – who also have a location in Midtown Detroit – is in for some big changes. Along with these two new spots, their Ferndale space is being converted to a coffee shop set to open in early 2020, while their offices will move to Troy. CEO Elizabeth Rose said the Royal Oak location –30955 Woodward Avenue – is part of the Woodward Corners by Beaumont project and will serve their custom blends and original lattes in addition to a food menu, which Rose wasn’t able to give specifics about. She did confirm there will be homemade ice cream, cold brew shakes, and matcha ice teas though. Inside the entrance of Papa Joe’s Market, 34244 Woodward Avenue, will be their Birmingham stop. Even though the menu will be more limited, there will be espresso drinks, roasted beans on-site, and plans to offer freshly roasted New Order Coffee in single-serve pods. “They can walk in, ask us to roast them a pound of beans, go out into the store, and pick up a warm bag of beans on their way out of the store,” Rose said.
