Do you start your morning with a cup of coffee? Have you ever wondered if there was a way to make this habit more meaningful? Recently, a new coffee shop called Beaningful Coffee opened near Valley Creek Apartments, and their unique operation allows you to give back with every cup of coffee you purchase.
Beaningful Coffee is the creation of Neighborhood House, a nonprofit charity that provides housing and care for those in need. The name is a combination of the words “bean” for coffee bean, and “meaningful.” The shop also provides employment opportunities for those who are new to the workforce or just starting off.
Beaningful Coffee is a lovely place to stop on your way to work, but it also has a cozy atmosphere that tempts you to stay awhile. Choose from plenty of small tables where you can get some computer work done or even read the paper while you sip your warm beverage. Tall, floor-to-ceiling windows and hanging globe lights add modern appeal. If you’re meeting some friends or coworkers, check out the small lobby area.
In addition to delicious coffee beverages, Beaningful Coffee offers breakfast and lunch items. For breakfast, the chia pudding is a sweet and healthy option. For lunch, try the chicken and brie sandwich. It’s creamy, served on high-quality bread, and will keep you full all afternoon. The beet salad is a lighter option, made with thinly sliced local beets and a vinaigrette dressing.
Beaningful Coffee is making a difference for people in the neighborhood. By stopping in for a coffee or a meal, you can make a difference, too.
