Lucabe Coffee Co. is the culmination of a dream that started during our engagement back in 2009.
I (Alissa) was concluding my five-year stint of working at Starbucks through college, and was preparing to relocate to Cookeville, TN where Tyler was finishing his MBA at Tennessee Tech University. It was in this transition when I took another postion as a Barista and Baker in a locally owned coffee shop, Dolce Cafe in downtown Cookeville. Through that experience, our vision for this dream really started to take shape - that we could one-day do this too!
We never knew when that day may come, but always kept our eyes open for the opportunity to make it a reality, as both of us grew up working in our own family-owned businesses, and desired the same experiences and opportunities for ours.
A few years later, when we moved to Columbus, Indiana, we noticed that a great, locally-owned, specialty coffee shop was missing from the landscape. So, we began to think and pray about how we might make that happen.
Now, eight years later (and four since our arrival in Columbus), we feel the time is right to bring that Specialty Coffee shop to Columbus!
We are passionate about coffee, people, and families, and we soon desire to be your new home away from home.
We hope to see you soon, drop in and say hi!
Thanks for Visiting!
