As you well know Cocoa Cinnamon came out of a lot of hard work, vision and the tremendous support of our community. Thousands of people have and continue to be an integral part of building and sustaining our project. Starting from a bike, building a shop, then expanding to another, we have been able to do so with great love and success with our community near and far. Tonight I would like to note one person who has been on our "team" from the very beginning: Brandon Hoe
We're sharing this here as you are all kickstarters and he is about to launch a Kickstarter campaign for a cool gadget we've had the good fortune of seeing him develop. It's called the Helium Core - the basic building block for iPhoneography - in short a prosumer interface to use interchangeable lenses and rig all sorts of gear such as a microphone to turn your iphone into a nimble and well equipped shooting device.

Brandon is having a launch party tomorrow, Saturday, April 8th from 3pm to 4:30pm at Fullsteam Brewery in Durham.
We hope you'll come and check out this awesome Durham developed gadget and be part of making this happen. His Kickstarter campaign will launch on April 26th.
Also, as a quick update Cocoa Cinnamon on Hillsborough Road is off to an awesome start.
We're still building out the menu and the hours; we just added evening hours Thursday through Saturday and Sundays from 9am to 8pm.
Spoon University just covered the new shop in the most beautiful way...and led to CC being listed as oen of Spoon University Best 25 Coffee Shops in America.
And Spoon wrote an in detail article with pics of the new location --https://duke.spoonuniversity.com/place/heres-get-cocoa-cinnamon-ii-immediately/
Thanks for being part of such an awesome launch and if you haven't made it yet, we hope you'll come by soon.
