You Ought to Know Nashville: Episode 5: Bongo Java and CREMA


In the fifth episode — and final for this first season — of You Ought To Know Nashville, created in partnership with Under The Guise and Nashville Public Television through a grant from PBS Digital, host Heidi Jewell introduces you to two of the city’s finest coffee shops and roasters: Bongo Java, established in 1993 on Belmont Blvd and catering to students, artists and musicians ever since; and CREMA, opened in 2008 on Hermitage Ave in the Rutledge Hill Neighborhood, where it provides a coffee haven for a tech-leaning crowd.
