Verve came to be through the serendipitous union of surf, sweat and a love of life and living.
In 2007, founders Ryan and Colby built and opened the first Verve cafe on 41st Ave in Santa Cruz, California. Today, Verve has locations in cities from Los Angeles to San Francisco to Tokyo, but our roots remain planted in Santa Cruz, where we roast our coffee on vintage roasters and enjoy the endless surf of the rugged California coast.
Inspired by neighborhood "street level" cafes of Europe, where community members meet every morning to discuss elements of life over espresso and cappuccinos, the life that happens within our cafes vibrates with a similar energy. Streetlevel is also the name of our flagship espresso blend, designed to be approachable, chocolatey, and super sweet in espresso drinks. Our Streetlevel atmosphere allows us to celebrate what it means to sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee.
Verve cafes celebrate life and the aesthetics of living, and the way coffee unites us all in an international community.
