Bella Caffe’ opened our doors on January 15, 2001. We began with the partnership of Jim Nowlen and Tim Talsky; two IT guys who love the feel of a coffeehouse, and have a passion for well selected, well brewed coffee. We like coffeehouses because they are a place read, visit with friends, talk about a wide variety of subjects and generally relax from our daily endeavors. We have always been grateful to the guidance of Ward and Lincoln Fowler, brothers behind what was then Alterra Coffee Roasters. They were instrumental in helping us put aside our “IT Guy” minds in favor of “Coffee Guy” minds. We enjoy a warm friendship with them to this day even though over time we moved to a different roaster. That was a natural outflow of our becoming “Coffee guys”… We developed our own pallet for coffee – and any true coffeehouse serves a coffee the owner finds delightful. This is not to imply a dislike for other coffee house’s coffee; just that we love the unique character each owner creates. We desire to share our best coffee along with our relaxing space with our friends and customers.
