Lucabe Coffee Co. is the culmination of a dream that started during Tyler & Alissa's engagement, back in 2009.
Alissa was concluding a 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 Alissa took another position as a Barista and Baker in a locally owned coffee shop, in downtown Cookeville. Through that experience, their vision for this dream really started to take shape - that they could, one-day, do this too!
Never knowing when that day may come, they always kept their eyes open for the opportunity to make it a reality. As both grew up working in their own family-owned businesses, they desired the same experiences and opportunities for their young & growing family.
A few years later, when they moved to Columbus, Indiana, they realized that a great, locally-owned, specialty coffee shop was missing from the landscape. And so, began to think and pray about how they might make that happen. After a location was identified, successful crowd-funding raise was made, all the other pieces fell into place!
Now, nearly 4-years into this adventure, they truly find joy in serving our community in new an innovative ways every day!
We are passionate about coffee, people, and providing an excellent experience that brings you back time after time. We invite you to come and experience Lucabe for the first time, or again!
We hope to see you soon, drop in and say hi!
Thanks for Visiting!
Tyler, Alissa, and the entire Lucabe Team
