Meet the Barista

Nice to meet you!

I’m Alex, just an average guy with a not-so-average passion for coffee. Born and raised in the heart of Erie, I’ve always been the kind of person who values community, good conversations, and a great cup of coffee.

How It started

Next Chapter Coffee began as a story of transition, a journey from the lecture halls of Penn State to the world of coffee and community. As a typical student, I was immersed in books, lectures, and the shared camaraderie of college life. But beneath the academic routine, I nurtured a secret dream – a dream fueled by my love for coffee


The cozy coffee shops that lined the town’s streets were more than just places to study; they were the soul of our community. Here, friends became family, business deals took shape, and love stories began.


One day, a bold idea took root. Why not bring the warmth and camaraderie of these coffee shops to the wider world? Why not take my passion for coffee and create a mobile coffee shop that could enhance special moments for others, just as those coffee shops had done for me in Erie?

Dream to Reality

Next Chapter Coffee was born! ┬áIt wasn’t just about coffee; it was about community, connections, and the simple joy of sipping a perfect cup of coffee while sharing life’s stories.
