The Entrepreneurs - Eureka 117: Over Under Coffee: 

Ed Barry knows the value of a good cup of coffee in building a community.

Serving cocktails, brunch and regularly hosting live events and pop-ups have helped the brand establish a loyal following – and also enabled Barry to open a second location in Soho.
