Scoping Out the Future Flatlands Coffee.

While driving and hanging out in northwestern Ohio recently, I decided to walk around downtown Bowling Green and checkout the future home of a third-wave coffee shop.

Downtown Bowling Green, Ohio

Right on Main Street in-between a gaming store and a tattoo parlor in the heart of a college town…

…will sit Flatlands Coffee.

As I have chronicled before, they are right in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign. I am backing Flatlands Coffee because I see the passion and knowledge Ben and Crissy have for coffee, a unique coffee shop design and experience and for helping to bring a welcoming and warm spot to their hometown.

I was getting goosebumps approaching the vacant building, where no coffee is even being served yet.

They will be offering up coffee from several brewing methods, at the same time staying away from the specialty drinks you see in a lot of coffee shops. A monthly “specialty” drink will be offered designed to complement a coffees flavor, not hide it. As an example they could serve a fruity Ethiopian as espresso and add sparkling water, cherry juice and a strawberry slice. My mouth is watering just writing this.

Another thing that raised my eyebrows is that they will offer the customer coffee from numerous roasters along with seasonal offerings. You’ll also be able to buy and take home co-branded, wonderfully designed packages of your favorites, something you don’t see everyday.

Checkout their Kickstarter campaign, video and my previous post and if you like what you see they are offering some pretty cool, coffeelicious rewards for helping. Next time I walk by that building in Bowling Green I will be going inside. 🙂

You can also find Flatlands Coffee on Twitter and Facebook.

A Flatlands Coffee Experience Is On Its Way.

Previous, I wrote about Flatlands Coffee and their Kickstarter campaign to open up a third wave coffee shop in downtown Bowling Green, Ohio.

They didn’t quite reach their goal, but by no means was that the end. Ben and his wife Cassy share a passion and knowledge of coffee and along with some re-marketing, branding and the experience they gained the first time, they just relaunched their campaign.

Their goal is to open up a multi-roaster coffee shop, hand-crafting each cup of coffee, along with participating in the coffee industry through on-site brewing competitions and more.

You can find them on Facebook and Twitter. Also, checkout their new Kickstarter page to see more of what they are all about and how you can help.

I’m looking forward to getting out on the open road to Bowling Green and experiencing the coffee, atmosphere and everything else that Flatlands Coffee will have to offer. 🙂 To more great coffee! Go get em guys!
