National Student Housing Firm, Vie Management, Gives Back to San Marcos and Announces The Opening of Its Second Coffee Shop

SAN MARCOS, Texas, May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Lifestyle-focused Kahvie Lofts, located at 817 Chestnut St. inside Vie Lofts at San Marcos, is offering a free small specialty latte to all frontline workers, with ID badges, from May 25 until June 25 as a way to say thank you for all their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"One of our core values is to give back to our communities and we thrive to do that through every aspect of our brand including our Kahvie Cafés," said Derrick Milam, COO of student housing real estate investment company Vie Management. "Our first responders and medical professionals are leading the charge and we want to help keep their spirits up and fuel them for the day ahead. We are all in this together and we're grateful to be able to say 'their first latte at Kahvie is on us.'"

From its inception, Kahvie Café has been designed to nourish the growing community, satisfying both body and spirit from sun up to lights out.

Kahvie Lofts is currently taking online orders and serving customers from its take-out window. Due to COVID-19, the café will not fully open until mid-June, pending any COVID-19 restrictions.

Drawing inspiration from the unique character of a wide array of cultures, Kahvie Café general manager Sarah Nicotra aspires to do more than serve great coffee. Designing the space to feel like coffee shops that Nicotra had worked at and visited throughout her travels around the world, she also drew inspiration from the neighborhoods that Vie Management's student housing communities are located in.

Kahvie Lofts is driven by a strong sense of place and purpose to create a space built around fresh, sustainable ingredients, with ample choices for people who have dietary preferences for health or lifestyle reasons. This vibrant, design-inspired space provides specialty coffees, such as oat milk lattes, using freshly roasted Lone Light Coffee Company coffee that has been roasted in Charlottesville, Va., tea products from Texas-based Camellia Tea and more.

Kahvie also utilizes a variety of flavors and products from the surrounding community. Focused on supporting as many local suppliers as possible, including Element Kombucha and Rockstar Bagels based out of San Antonio. Kahvie offers fresh, locally made products that are hard to find anywhere else.

Kahvie Lofts is currently open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and starting June 13th will also be open Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. For more information on Kahvie Café's menu, location and hours of operation please visit kahvie.com and follow Kahvie on Instagram and Facebook at @kahvielofts. Follow the conversation on social with #kahviecoffee.

This is Vie Management's second Kahvie Café location. The original location can be found at its student housing community Vie Towers in Hyattsville, Md. Vie Management has plans to further expand its lifestyle café brand with a new location at Vie at University Downs in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
