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 area. Owners John and Pat Curry
opened their flagship café in 2013 in a 1930s cottage on The Hill
between the two campuses of Augusta University. In 2018, Buona
Caffe added a second location at the Cyber Center in downtown
Augusta. This spring, a cozy espresso bar opened at the roastery.
Award-winning coffee and talented baristas are truly the secret to the shop’s success. Voted Best Coffee eight times by the readers of Augusta Magazine, Buona Caffe’s drink menu features specialty coffee and expertly made espresso drinks. Their flavored syrups are house-made, and their milk comes from a local dairy. The menu also offers teas, house-made sodas, and hot chocolate. Customers also can take home a bag of freshly roasted beans.
Great coffee deserves great food, and Buona Caffe certainly delivers tasty treats, from freshly made breakfast sandwiches and pastries to sandwiches, quiche, and seasonal desserts. Buona Caffe also offers Augusta’s widest selection of specialty coffee brewing equipment and coffee-themed merchandise.
