Those passing by the coffee shop at the corner of San Juan Avenue and Sperry Drive have found its doors closed during regular business hours in recent days, prompting questions as to the future of the establishment.

BeanHeads Coffee opened its doors in August 2021 at 6001 San Juan Ave., with owner Tim Snipes aspiring to make it the first craft coffee shop in Citrus Heights. On Monday morning, the doors were shut and a few pieces of mail were observed beginning to collect inside the door.

Asked in an email Monday if the location has permanently closed, or if the closure is temporary, Snipes said: “not sure yet.”

Snipes told The Sentinel previously that Citrus Heights was slated to be his first BeanHeads location, but he couldn’t pass on a Natomas opportunity when the previous owner retired and left a fully equipped coffee shop in a former Java City building.

Snipes has been in the coffee business since 2006, and has operated a coffee kiosk business model in local hospitals, according to a previous report by The Sentinel.
