Vienna Coffee Company announced earlier this summer that we would be opening a brand new location in the historic Regas Building in Downtown Knoxville. We’re looking forward to moving in this September and we can’t we to start serving the Knoxville community.
One of the tools we will be using in our new location is our new Victoria Arduino White Eagle T3 espresso machine. Director of Coffee Philip Hatter snaps a pic with this sleek new machine as we unboxed it earlier this week.
This machine was designed for quality, which is our top priority at Vienna Coffee Company. The White Eagle T3 is backed by the Specialty Coffee Association [SCA] and provides the barista with maximum control over their espresso. With this machine, our baristas will be able to provide our customers with a quality shot of espresso every time!
Vienna Coffee Company would like to introduce our new general manager, Andy Conatser. Andy is from the Knoxville area and graduated from Maryville High School. He attended the University of Tennessee, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management.
With 25 years of experience, he has worked in all aspects of the industry from Regas Restaurant to Alpine Bagel Company and eventually his own restaurant, Look Rock Bakery & Pizzeria, with Conatser Concepts, LLC.
While attending UT, Andy worked for Regas in downtown Knoxville and never imagined he would be going back to the same location 30 years later with Vienna Coffee Company.
“Andy is a seasoned food service manager with a wealth of pertinent experience. Originally from Maryville and now returned, Andy has experience and culinary training that will serve us very well as we open multiple locations in the near future,” said owner John Clark. “Andy is excited to join us and help to make our planned food and alcohol program as well respected as our current coffee bar is in Maryville. “
