Oregon-based coffee chain Black Rock Coffee Bar is opening its first Texas stores, with three locations heading to Austin. The first, located at 7415 Southwest Parkway at the Lantana Place development, had been expected to open in November, but now will open on Friday, January 10.

The other two Black Rock locations in Austin are expected to open in Pflugerville and Round Rock after that, though though the addresses are not yet available.

Black Rock serves espresso and coffee drinks, with seasonal creations like salted caramel cold foam cold brew, frozen charcoal mocha, and of course, a pumpkin spice latte. There are also smoothies, tea, sodas, and the brand’s own energy drink called Fuel.

The cafe will also serve “locally sourced menu items.” Each location will have a drive-thru.

Black Rock opened in Beaverton, Oregon in 2008. It currently operates 65 cafes in Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, and Colorado, with another Texas location planned for Katy.
