The Press

Health fans, The Press is the place for you. Before its current iteration, The Press was a South Korean franchise known as Caffe Bene. Owner Alice Oh wanted to find a way to fold her passion for natural foods into her business, leading her to open The Press at the former Caffe Bene location. The Press has options for everyone, from organic coffee to their famed house-made cold press juices.
