Kin is much more than just a coffee shop. Owner and SLO native, Julian Contreras aims to push the limit of the drinks they provide the community – to practically a science. Whether it’s their first harvest Matcha or locally crafted coffee from Cacti Coffee Roaster, they aim to not just create the best, but the most unique drinks they possibly can.
Located just next door, is The Gallant, owned and operated by Julian’s brother, Christian D. Contreras who has been in the hair industry for over 9 years. Acquiring Barbering knowledge from expert training, he has honed his craft and is skilled in Traditional Shear Work, Modern Skin Fading to Conventional Taper, Crops and Long Hair Feathering. His love and respect for the Straight Razor Shave has humbled him to treat each Shave with the dedication it deserves, for this is his life work; according to the website.
