In 2011, Areli and Leon moved to Durham and started a coffee business out of a bike cart. Now they have three thriving shops and a roastery, leading to winning a national recognition as 2022 Microroaster of the Year. Areli’s roots in Mexico and Leon’s love of history and spices culminate as Cocoa Cinnamon, a gem at the heart of our Durham community.
