Local favorite now perking up community at Winter Park college
Rollins College students, faculty, staff and visitors can now conveniently enjoy a gourmet cup o’ joe and other specialty drinks within steps of on-campus work, study, and play. Bookmark Café in Rollins’ Olin Library is now being powered by Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co., the beloved Orlando-based roaster and national leader in premium coffee and tea.
In addition to serving Barnie’s premium coffee, latte, cappuccino, and other coveted brews, the café will continue to offer snacks, sandwiches, salads, and other food items, as well as meal swipe options for students on Rollins Dining Services’ meal plans.
“After serving the Rollins community at our Park Avenue café for forty years, we are thrilled to build on our relationship with an on-campus Fueled By Barnie’s presence,” Scott Uguccioni Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co. “Students can now save time between classes while enjoying their favorite brew, including delectable flavored coffees and teas, Crop•Ex single-origin coffees, Nitro Cold Brew, and year-round favorites, including Santa’s White Christmas.”
“We’re delighted to welcome Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co. to our campus,” added Sam Stark, vice president of communications and external Relations at Rollins. “Their on-campus presence translates into convenience for our community, as well as valuable training and income opportunities for our students. We look forward to a long and productive partnership.”
Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co. collaborated with Rollins every step of the way leading up to launch. Once partners acquired the necessary brewing equipment and cutlery, Barnie’s dedicated team of café professionals shepherded café staff through the installation, training and transition processes, ready to leave a full-service coffee café in confident, capable hands. The café operates Monday – Wednesday, 7:30am – 10pm; Thursday, 7:30am – 9:30pm; Friday, 7:30am – 1pm; Saturday, 9am – 1pm; and Sunday, 9am – 1pm and 7pm – 10pm.
Rollins joins a growing list of Fueled by Barnie’s cafes and wholesale coffee operations in partnership with colleges, museums, and offices in Central Florida and throughout the southeast, including the Orlando Science Center, Seminole County Schools, and EA Tiburon.
