Who we are as a company:
We’re a local family-owned specialty coffee shop, based in Decatur, Illinois. In the coffee world,
we would be considered a third-wave, crafted coffee shop. This just means we value a quality
product, each worker’s efforts to get it there and strive to make the consumer’s appreciation and
experience of that product reflect our own.

Though the mainstream coffee environment is fast-paced, we designed our space as one of rest
and openness, in hopes of promoting relationships and community. Our slow bar is open and
free of the usual eye-obstructing equipment, because we love face to face time with our
customers. Good things take time to build, whether it’s community, relationships, or a fresh cup
of carefully crafted coffee.

Who we are ​
Meet the Owners

My name is Aaron, and my beautiful wife is Abigail. While we were dating, our favorite thing to
do was travel around and find good coffee. After a while, we realized what a shame it was that
we had to travel hours away from home to find this. It has always been my dream to open a
specialty coffee shop, and in Decatur, I saw a need that my passion, skill, and dreams could meet.
It is a joy and a privilege for my wife and I to serve our community and share with them our
love for crafted coffee.
