1. Café

    Sweat Records is proud to be Miami’s only fully vegan coffee house!

    We brew locally-roasted Panther Coffee beans (and are their official online retailer).

    Each beverage we serve is handmade-to-order so that it’s fresh and delicious when you drink it.

    The centerpiece of the café is our gorgeous espresso machine, a top-of-the-line Bauhaus TLV designed by Studio Progetti.  A work of art in and of itself, this sexy beast extracts our organic beans into a rich, velvety cup topped with the perfect amount of crema.

    We offer regular or vanilla soy milk AND regular or vanilla almond milk.  Our cups and napkins are all recycled, and we’ve got Sweat-colored reusable cups that get you a free drink when you buy it and a discount every time you bring it back in!

    Our drink menu is below and we always have a selection of vegan cupcakes, bars, and treats available.  Come in today to see what all of our customers are raving about!

    Miami Herald: Get your cup of joe and more at these spots
    by Jaweed Kaleem
    August 7, 2008

    Coffee culture dominates Miami, though it’s more often cortadito, café con leche and colada than latte, cappuccino and basic black. There are hundreds of cafés and walk-up windows where caffeine fans can refuel, but relatively few dedicated, independent coffee shops — locally owned places where one can grab a hot cup of joe or maybe a cold blender drink, order a pastry or sandwich and sit down with a book, a newspaper or a friend for hours. Here are three we like.

    Sweat Records: When this independent record store expanded late last year from a storage room at Churchill’s Pub to a larger space next door, owner Lauren ”Lolo” Reskin added a full coffee shop with a bohemian, D.I.Y. vibe.

    Coffee is organic and Fair Trade-certified, served in cups made from recycled paper with a choice of soy, rice or organic cow’s milk. Besides the usual combinations of espresso and steamed milk, there’s the Devastator, a super-strong $5 shot; made-to-order French-press coffee, and Numi brand flowering tea, served in a glass pot for sharing at the square tables and comfy couches.

    Forgot to bring a friend? The walls are lined with browsable CDs, records, books and magazines (PostSecret, Adbusters, Bust), and the coffee counter is a one-stop shop for posters and flyers about local concerts and art events.

    Sweat screens independent movies at 8:30 p.m. Mondays (next week it’s Wholphin, a quarterly DVD magazine of short art films from McSweeney’s), hosts a book club and occasionally has local bands perform in-store.

    5505 NE Second Ave., Miami; espresso drinks $2-$4, French-press coffee $2.50-$3, tea $2-$6, snacks (vegan cookies, vegetarian jerky, nutrition bars) $1.50-$3.50; noon-midnight daily; free daytime parking in Churchill’s Pub lot; free wireless Internet; 305-758-5862, ext. 5; sweatrecordsmiami.com.
