In November, Seven Days reported that Nomad Coffee — which, since August 2016, had been popping up caravan style near Five Corners in Essex Junction — would be moving to Sugarbush Resort for the winter.

At the time, owners Andrew Sepic and Nicole Grinstead were seeking an indoor Essex location to inhabit for the winter but hadn't yet found one. Now, they have.  Their new temporary spot is in "literally the closest building to our old location," Sepic said.

The "big, white building" at 9 Main Street, as Sepic described it, used to house a law office. Now, the second floor holds artists' studios and Nomad's brewing equipment. There, visitors can get all of the usual Nomad espresso drinks and Sweet Simone's pastries. The only difference, Sepic explained, is that they don't serve smoothies.

Asked to describe the new locale, he chuckled. "It comes with a modern, minimalist setting right now," he said. "There are plastic folding chairs around a table made of old doors. There are mandalas painted on the carpet to warm the space up a bit."

Photos on Nomad's Instagram show a clean, spare space decorated with tree branches and Christmas lights.

How are things going at the mountain? Sepic noted that the cold weather made for a quiet holiday weekend, but said that, overall, the response to the coffee pop-up has been positive.

"It hasn't been an onslaught, but we've had some really good business days," he said. "Overall, I'm pretty optimistic that it will work out well."
