Before the coffee shop came the coffee, and lots of it. Puroast, a coffee brand created in Southern California more than 25 years ago by brothers Kerry and Jim Sachs, has slowly expanded across the nation. Its Brickell location, which opened earlier this year, marks the brand's first local brick-and-mortar location, and others are expected. Puroast's coffee shop blends a classic and relaxed South American or European-style vibe with fast-paced service perfect for those on the run. Whether you're looking to get in and out as quickly as possible or want to grab a book and spend the afternoon, Puroast proudly welcomes both, which is unconventional for most coffee or bakery spots in town. Also on the menu besides the brothers' unique brews are fresh-squeezed juices, croissants, sandwiches, and salads, all under $10. Plus, there's a bevy of freshly baked breads and pastries.
