Dallas will get coffee, Martha-style, in November, with the opening of Martha Stewart Cafe, a coffee shop at the Macy's store at Galleria Dallas.

A spokesperson confirms that Dallas will open in early November, and will be the third location.

The first opened in 2015 in New York, in the lobby of Stewart's corporate headquarters. A second branch opens in Sacramento on October 8.

The cafe draws its inspiration from artisanal cafes of Europe with coffee, tea, espresso drinks, and cold-brew iced coffee. Coffee comes from Kobrick Coffee, a New York City-based and family-owned roaster that sources the beans for the custom "Martha's Blend." Martha's favorite espresso bean is roasted in small batches in Trieste, Italy.

Artisanal loose-leaf teas are provided by Wei Bertram of Connecticut-based Arogya Tea. They include Martha's Breakfast Blend, a signature blend of Assam long leaf and Chinese black teas; Da Hong Pao, a legendary oolong hand-rolled and roasted in China; and a nutty, subtly sweet buckwheat tea.

In addition to drinks, the cafe will sell beans by the bag for $13.50 to $15, and cannisters of loose-leaf tea for $20.

While the original cafe features pastries, the Dallas store will probably follow the example of the Sacramento store and serve granolas and nuts. Note: A spokesperson says that the cafe will also feature "a curated assortment of pastries from local bakeries."

Stewart has a longtime association with Macy's, which sells her collection of bedding, bath, furniture, and decor.
