This week on the podcast, we've got founder and owner of Neat Coffee, Ally Garvin, who - after ten long months of hard work, fundraising, floor refinishing, leak patching, mural painting, menu compiling, and staff training - now has a beautiful, new, coffee shop to call her own. Garvin's mission to create a community gathering space in Costa Mesa, and the obstacles she's overcome to get there, can be an inspiration to us all. Check out our interview with Garvin, then go visit the new Neat Coffee at 1922 Pomona Avenue!
