Text: “Taking a little break for some fuel – a large ICED Golden Girls Latte made with oat milk. Four shots of espresso, honey, turmeric, and milk steamed lightly for texture – OVER ICE because it’s hotter than the hinges on the gates of hell in Louisville today.”

For my money, Old Louisville Coffee Co-Op (316 W. Ormsby Avenue) is a heartwarming and instructive tale about the spirit of independent small business in Louisville. Following are a few bullet points, courtesy of Michael L. Jones at Louisville Business First.

  • Old Louisville Coffee Co-op is worker-owned.
  • It fills the commercial square footage formerly occupied by Amici Café.
  • Old Louisville Coffee Co-Op “will be a safe space for LGBTQ people.”
  • It also will offer a “late night alternative to the bar scene for people in recovery.”
  • Co-op owners are Israel Benard, Kristina Diggs, Adrian Silbernagel, Corey Robison and America Medious.
  • The co-op is partnering with Sis Got Tea, Kizito Cookies and Houston-based Three Keys Coffee.

Old Louisville Coffee Co-Op’s official opening is slated for June 29, with hours from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (Monday through Thursday) and a 24-hour opening schedule on weekends: Friday at 8:00 a.m. until Sunday at 11 p.m.
