Realfine Coffee owner Julie Mierzwiak will open her second café in the former Stumptown Coffee space on East Pine Street in early 2018.

Stumptown Coffee Roasters opted not to renew its lease at 616 E. Pine St., and instead is putting its café focus into its 12th Avenue shop. It served its last espresso shot on Aug. 20.

Mierzwiak opened Realfine Coffee in West Seattle back in late 2015, next to Rudy’s Barbershop. She said it was Rudy’s that reached out to the property owner when Stumptown didn’t renew its lease, as the barbershop’s Capitol Hill location is right next door.

“I’m really really grateful for those guys,” Mierzwiak said. “It’s been a really great partnership.”

The old Stumptown location is slightly larger than Realfine’s West Seattle spot, Mierzwiak said, and the plan is to use the existing millwork and cabinetry while still making the space her own.

“The opportunity presented itself and I didn’t want to pass it up,” she said, “and there is a pending road project that is happening in West Seattle that is going to really mess with us, so I guarantee that revenue is going to go down.”

The Fauntleroy Way SW Boulevard Project is expected to start as soon as early 2018, stretching from the West Seattle Bridge to Southwest Alaska Street. Realfine Coffee is at 4480 Fauntleroy Way S.W.

Mierzwiak said design for her first space was a collaborative effort, and the Capitol Hill space is being designed by Michelle Galliano Salinas.

Realfine Capitol Hill will have all the local flavors that the West Seattle café has, including Herkimer coffee — small-batch roasted in Phinney Ridge — and a Synesso espresso machine manufactured in West Seattle. Standard Bakery provides baked goods, and there will be a case for Molly’s sandwiches and wraps. Mierzwiak said she’ll probably skip offering beer, since there are already plenty of options on the Hill.

“With how rapidly our beautiful city is growing, I just want to keep the connectedness of the new and the old in Seattle,” she said.
