Leap Coffee

Hannah Haughton, Reporter

Leap Coffee is located in The Shoppes at Carlsbad, and it is only one of the two local coffee houses they own. Leap is a small business that roots back to Carlsbad and the owners PJ Ortega and Brandy Cutbirth have worked hard on the new location to make it feel open and welcoming. Leap strives to provide guests with the best coffee and teas from all over the world. Their beans come from places such as Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Nicaragua and Portugal.  With these beans coming in from South America, Leap puts in their own touch by roasting the beans in their first location in Carlsbad. Being a smaller business, it has to compete with the larger franchises like Starbucks and Peet’s. Leap will be one to look out for.
