Our Story

Shift is a hip, urban chic fashioned espresso bar with a chilled atmosphere helping you get your coffee fix both on the go or chilling with friends. Our premium coffee is roasted locally, fair trade certified and made with pure passion. 

Shift was created when the owner and his family changed their entire lives and moved to the world of coffee. The shift in their lifestyles, ideals and motivations led them to create an oasis of equality, provoking ideas and beautiful memories.
