Pachamama Farmer Owned Coffee Bar is the newest addition to the John Natsoulas Gallery at 521 First St.

According to spokeswoman Mollie Moisan, it’s the first café in the United States that links coffee farmers directly with consumers. The organic coffee comes from small farms in Ethiopia, Peru, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Mexico that are part of the Pachamama Coffee Cooperative, based in Sacramento.

“The city of Davis and the Davis Food Co-op have been overwhelmingly supportive of our farmers,” Moisan said in a news release. “We are thrilled to be building on our local partnerships to meet the demands of the farm-to-fork community in Northern California.”

It had a soft opening last week, and a grand opening on Saturday. It replaces The Rosetta Café that opened in June. Hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Jamba Juice in Davis Commons closed on Nov. 12. Whole Foods Market outbid Jamba for the space.

Whole Foods plans to add seating, and recently asked its Facebook fans what it would like to see in that space. The most popular answer? A juice bar, followed by some craft beer taps.

Whole Foods spokeswoman Kristen Tantarelli said, “We love hearing from our customers, however, there are no formal plans at this point.”

Construction will begin in December, with plans to open something in February.

Former Brew It Up! owner Mike Costello is opening a new brewery, Yolo Brewing Company, in West Sacramento, this spring. It’s at 1520 Terminal St., “on a prominent corner in the heart of West Sacramento’s industrial Port District,” its Facebook page says.

“Guest brewing services and our small batch craft brewery will be prominently featured in our beer hall,” it says. “The outdoor ‘beer dock’ will provide casual, comfortable, shaded enjoyment of our beers.”

Brew It Up began in Davis in the mid-1990s as a personal brewery. It moved to downtown Sacramento seven years later, adding a large restaurant and bar to the concept. The recession forced its closure in 2011.

The new brewery and taproom will focus on small-batch house-made and brew-your-own beers, with a family-friendly atmosphere.
