A specialty coffee roaster and espresso bar, Buona Caffe has evolved from two people’s dream to an ever-expanding artisan coffee supplier renowned throughout the Augusta River Region. Owners John and Pat Curry opened their café in 2013 in a cozy 1930s cottage on The Hill between the two campuses of Augusta University.
Voted the best coffee in Augusta for six years in a row, Buona Caffe’s drink menu features a wide variety of specialty coffees roasted on-site and expertly made espresso drinks with house-made syrups and milk from a local dairy. Cold brew and nitro are available on tap. The menu also offers a fine selection of teas, house-made sodas, hot chocolate, and juices.
Naturally, great coffee and espresso deserve great food. Buona Caffe offers freshly made breakfast sandwiches, pastries, sandwiches, quiche, and sweet treats, all made in house or from a local bakery. If you’re lucky, Pat will be working on a new recipe in the kitchen and looking for “beta tasters”!
