Come curious. Leave Cuban.
The coffee ritual is one of the most beloved Cuban traditions. The Colada Shop team ordered an add-shot of creativity from beyond the Beltway and Bartlett Brands delivered—concepting a brand meant to be as admired as the tradition itself.
The intrigue of Cuba provided rich inspiration for the brand’s concept. When designing the space and identity, we borrowed visual language from both the Cuban home and the colorful, distressed streets of Havana—referencing tradition, but with a modern sensibility. We curated a lively interior with colorful tiles, distressed textures and authentically Cuban materials. Then, we whipped up menu designs, packaging and collateral with extra foam and a dash of heart.
Colada Shop has grown to five locations in the DC Metro area.
