Jose Alvarez

VGallery_Wooddale-670Jose has a great understanding of food and has an ability to anticipate flavors as he selects menu items for the Cafe. He leads a hardworking, devoted staff as they navigate what it takes to prepare and serve thousands of meals a year.

All you have to do is say coffee and he will join in the conversation.  Jose yearns to learn all that he can about the journey of a coffee bean from remote plantation to the plentiful urban cup of coffee.

Jose and his wife, Crystal, spend their time together exploring new restaurants and coffee roasters in the twin cities. They have two young adult daughters that are pretty amazing.
