Intelligentsia
Our beans are carefully grown and roasted in partnership with artisan farmers and Intelligentsia coffee. 

We place order, our beans are fresh roasted, then arrive in our coffeebar a day later to provide the best coffee and latte for you.

Open Mic

The next open mic will be Thursday, Oct. 25th from 7-10 pm.  We have a phenomenal piano accompanist, Mark Burnell, who coordinates the evening and will play any music you bring.  

If you don't want to sing, we'd still love to have you join us! 

We also have wine and craft beer, paninis, and cheeseboards - so come hungry!

Mother Earth
For us, being “green” isn’t a trend.  It’s a way of life.  As we opened our coffee bar, we incorporated our concern for the environment into our business. 

Here’s how we try to make a difference...    

We built our our counter with metal from a friend's farm building (no longer in service).
  
My Dad built our bar top with a tree he cut down years ago after it was struck by lightning.
 

Our orange chairs are reclaimed vintage Eames 440 metal office chairs. 

Other furniture is reused, reclaimed, or re-purposed as well.  
 

We use biodegradable hot drink cups, recyclable lids, and cup sleeves made from 100% recycled fiber that are biodegradable and recylable. 

We don't use plastic straws. Ours are paper - biodegradable or compostable. 


Fuel for our cars is made from used cooking oil.   


Choices matter.    We try to help the planet with ours.    

Enjoy your coffee!
