Soho Coffee at 20th and Yesler is undergoing a make-over, and the new look and name will be revealed during an event Thursday evening at 7 p.m.
Barry Faught, who has owned the shop for the three years, said the changes will reflect how he has evolved over the years.
“My passion for coffee and coffee preparation has risen,” he said. “The new name and styles of coffee preparation will show that.”
Coffee items available today will still be available, and the shop will continue serving Stumptown coffee. However, they will also feature coffee from other providers at times and will offer pour-overs. Their sandwich provider is also switching to Molly’s Salads, which advertises sustainable and mostly-organic products.
The hours will also likely expand slightly, extending to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Sunday hours will likely remain slightly shorter.
In the meantime, Soho is operating out of the entryway area of the shop with seating outside.
