After years of frequenting coffee shops and enjoying the atmosphere, we decided to buy our own shop! The location had changed hands a couple of times before we picked it up but we saw the potential there. With a vision of serving some of the highest quality coffee Mount Juliet has to offer and with a vibe that isn't too loud and allows people to come in alone or with friends to enjoy the atmosphere or play our board games, we bout the location in February 2020 - a funny thing happened the next month that set us back a bit, but we finally had our grand opening in August 2020, and took the long road to redesigning the shop!
We started with the coffee beans, emphasizing beans that worked best with the type of coffee - a nuttier chocolate coffee with our espresso based drinks, a medium and bold flavor for our drip, and a fruitier robust flavor for the cold brew, always doing cuppings to make sure we're happy with our offering and keeping an open mind to new ideas and flavors. With a smaller food menu as well, we have continued to emphasize high quality ingredients and the best tasting coffee, and whenever possible, as a small business, we work with several small businesses as often as we can to support each other!
What does the future hold? We're not sure - we'd love to host board game nights and even cuppings for people who want to also travel the same black hole of coffee that we've fallen down!
