Makin' Coffee

655 Highway 50 East, Suite 4, Dayton


Owner: Karen Duran

How she started: Duran owns a health food store next door and decided to buy the coffee shop from the previous owners in August. She also plans to open a fitness center in the plaza in February.

What's different: She said she got rid of a lot of the syrups and smoothies that didn't have natural ingredients.

How she got interested: She's been learning about mixing through her interest in health foods.

Her favorite drink: An organic Dominican mocha. She said she's working on a lot of new drinks such as a mudslide-flavored drink.

Why she came to Dayton: She moved from Washoe County seven years ago because land was cheaper.

What's next: She's going to bring in soups, salads and sandwiches soon.
