New coffee shop comes to Bangor Mall

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Attention Bangor Mall shoppers in need of a pick me up.

Espresso Self, a coffee kiosk has opened at center court.

Owner Stephen Porter has another business in the mall and says he noticed customers didn't have a place to go to get a good cup of joe.

So, he launched a new venture and made a point to buy as much as he could locally, including the coffee which is made in Rockland.

"It was real important to keep it as much as we possibly can Maine-based businesses," said Porter. "Where we buy our product from and having a fresh roast that was our biggest, having a fresh, fresh coffee."

Porter and his wife bake their own goods, too.

They're open every day and are hiring if you're looking for work.
