A change of ownership at one of The Junction’s independent coffee shops, Red Cup Espresso. Now-ex-owner Tricia DiBernardo sent the photo above, plus the following note of thanks, as well as an introduction from the new owners:
Hey West Seattle!
Eric and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being supportive and loyal to our business and friends to our family. We have enjoyed this time at Red Cup immensely, but our tides are shifting and we’re moving our pursuits in other directions. It is with a happy heart, we have passed the steam wand over to long time Red Cup barista, Samir and his wife, Breanna. Please continue to support this great business and wonderful couple. See ya around the neighborhood!
Tricia, Eric and Nina
And from the new owners:
Five years ago Breanna and I moved to West Seattle and fell in love with it. Both her Mother and Grandfather have deep roots in the community, and have history throughout the area. When I first began working at Red Cup, i could tell that this is the right place for me. We are both honored to have been passed this torch & are both humbled by the kind words and positive energy sent our way by the neighborhood. She and I are excited to bring a new approach to the cafe experience, and promise to continue to provide top notch service, and delicious beverages. Thank you West Seattle and thank you Tricia, for making both of our dreams a reality. Red Cup, Repra’Zent.
Samir & Breanna Baillie
Not only are Brenna and Samir now entrepreneurs – they’re still relative newlyweds, too.
