Our first Brick & Mortar store opened in January 2019 on the Caribbean Island of St. Croix in the U.S.V.I Cafe 840 (840 STX) is a high-end coffee shop with a concentration on hemp and CBD products as a healthier alternative. As Maryland Natives we look forward to expanding our Stateside operations. We strive to provide the best products and knowledge.
