Caffe Medici has its eyes set on its sixth location as part of the recently-announced creative workspace Springdale General, as reported by Statesman. These plans include the Austin coffee shop’s first-ever roasting facility.

Also planned for the new space are offices and a training lab, as owner Michael Vaclav told Eater. This means the location will serve as a sort of headquarters for the coffee shops. He had been working on plans for the roastery for about five years. This expansion is on the heels of the recent opening of the window counter on Congress, unveiled this month. Currently, Caffe uses beans from Spyhouse Coffee Roasters and Wild Gift.

Springdale General will consist of 15 different buildings across 10 acres of space. It’ll be found just down the street from Canopy, the similar studio complex where Japanese-influenced cafe Sa-Ten is located. Both developments are run by Central Austin Management Group. It’s expected to open in early 2018.
