“What goes best with a cup of coffee? Another cup.” ― Henry Rollins

Paul Cali and Doug Parent have cultivated the perfect blend of beach and brew on Bangs Ave in Asbury Park, NJ. They’re a small business with a passion for coffee and penchant for art. Aside from entrepreneurs, Paul is a still photographer shooting exclusively 35 and 120mm film, while Doug channels his energy into woodworking. It only felt right to film and interview this duo in a way that would resonate with Cafe Volan’s following, as well as spark an interest in those who’ve yet to experience the shop. Please have a look at the short piece created by Ryan Struck.
