“What’s up with the name of that cafe?” A new feature on Sprudge series asks exactly that.
What’s in a name? A spro by any other name would taste just as sweet. But to a coffee shop, that collection of letters designating a sequence of sounds referring to a thing, action, or idea is pretty important. The name is generally the first piece of information a customer gets about a shop, the introduction […]
March Madness is upon us once again, but not the American college basketball trope with the bracketology and the bubble teams. This madness, nay, lunacy, is the 70,000-plus-person invasion of Austin, Texas known as South by Southwest, the weeklong multimedia blowout turning anything resembling a street in ATX into a parking lot. It is a […]
Tweed Coffee Roasters in Dallas is expanding. Though it’s one of the more recognizable Dallas coffee brands, Tweed has had a fairly nomadic existence over the past 18 months‚ roasting out of Cultivar Coffee’s east side roastery while the company figured out the hows and wheres of finding a permanent homestead. Tweed has since found that […]
The coffee shop has always been one of the great incubators for artist-types. It’s a home base for creative nomads, where those not shackled to desk jobs go to sketch, write, or just ideate into leather-bound notepads, propped up only by a cup of coffee and, depending on your location and era, a pack of […]

According to Cuvée, in 2015 you’ll be able to sip on some nitrogen-carbonated cold brew coffee can goodness for yourself. Here’s the video released today: And a video explaining what the hell […]
Alex From Target is the internet’s latest viral Twitter crush. He’s a hunky teen Target bag boy, and everyone is lining up to wait at that register. I think I speak for the whole team at Sprudge when I say, if I were at Alex From Target’s Target in Texas, I’d want him to bag me, too. […]
Cultivar Coffee has long been one of the driving forces in Dallas specialty coffee. Back in early 2011 when owners Nathan Shelton and Jonathan Meadows opened the East Dallas storefront for their roastery, a coffee “scene” didn’t really exist—there was a micro-roaster or two and a handful of baristas immersing themselves in coffee culture, but […]
Cuvee Coffee is a recognizable force in Austin coffee and by extension, Texas coffee. Founded back in 1998, they are today one of the oldest and most established specialty coffee roasters in Texas. The brand’s signature light blue packaging has appeared on top cafe shelfs across the city, and Caffe Medici, Houndstooth, and Once Over […]
It’s an exciting time to be a coffee drinker in Dallas. From the opening of Houndstooth to the wide array of shops bringing in solid guest roasters from around the country, the horizons have broadened exponentially from where they were just a few short years ago. More than just guesting a lively cross-section of American roasters, […]
When Austin-based Houndstooth Coffee announced last December that they were planning a store in Dallas, it created an audible hum amongst the city’s coffee community. Dallas, where I am based, has in recent years felt like a second fiddle when compared to the wildly exciting food and coffee scene in nearby Austin, a city known […]
