Significant changes in life circumstances since opening in February, 2008 have prompted us to exit at this time. This decision was especially difficult to make given that GlobeHopper is so much more than a coffee house, it’s part of our identity. The relationships amongst the team, and with those served, have made this community staple feel more like our family. It’s been a familiar comfort, and source of pride over these past seven years.

We as founders are indebted beyond words to General Manager and friend, Kimmy Certa. We attribute our successes and positive reputation to her incredible dedication – and credit her for keeping the mission of coffee, culture and community alive since both of our relocations outside of Richmond several years ago. We extend our deepest gratitude to all of the amazing GlobeHopper baristas past and present who joined us on this journey and thank all of the customers who supported the vision of GlobeHopper along the way.

We are proud to have provided our neighbors a special retreat, with delicious drinks, the most sincere and talented baristas, and an inviting and inclusive atmosphere.
