NuVibe Juice & Java
The team at NuVibe Juice & Java fills vacant cups with free-trade, air-roasted coffee drinks and more than 30 flavors of smoothies. As they blend pieces of nutritious fresh fruit, 100% juice, and creamy yogurt or sherbet, staffers eschew the use of high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and forced smiles. Power smoothies contain 25 grams of whey protein to fuel working muscles, and the menu caters to low-carb and kid-sized diets.
The shop procures its coffee from The Roasterie, a nationally renowned company that uses a convection-air method to roast beans purchased from small specialty farmers. The smooth-tasting results comprise concoctions such as creamy caramel lattes and chocolate peanut-butter blended ice coffees, and both pair well with free WiFi and a hot pretzel or muffin.
