One coffee shop in Indiana is expanding with a new location, but this time, they plan to roast their own beans as the small business has acquired a local, area coffee roaster as well.

Honey Moon Expanding

Currently, Honey Moon Coffee Co. has three locations in the Evansville area and has just announced plans for a fourth location on the city's west side. Owners Zach and Jessica Parsons made the announcement on the business's Facebook page that they have purchased the building that formerly housed Roger's Academy of Hair. In their post, they say Honey Moon West Side is expected to be the coffee shop's largest location with completion expected by the summer of 2023.

Joining the Roasting Game

Not only will the Parsons's continue the Honey Moon tradition of brewing delicious coffee for its customers, but the small business is adding coffee roasting to its repertoire as well. Evansville 411 News shared the announcement that Zac and Jessica have purchased Evansville Coffee Company - a local coffee roaster that has been serving Evansville and the surrounding area since 2016. According to Evansville 411 News,

With the expected acquisition of the old Roger's Hair Academy building, the Parsons plan to move the operations of Evansville Coffee Company under the same roof as Honey Moon West Side in the 2nd quarter of 2023. They plan on roasting in the customer-facing area of the coffee shop, with plans on offering curated roasting sessions for visitors interested in having a more immersive experience and custom coffee blend.

Coffee Creamer is the Secret Ingredient

I love coffee. It's pretty much the ONLY thing that makes mornings worth getting up for. As Lorelei Gilmore once said, I think I was coffee in another life. And one thing I love to put in my coffee is fancy creamers! This might be a shock to some, but I prefer at-home brew with CoffeeMate over drive-thru lattes. Sorry but not really sorry.

Did you know that there is MORE to do with coffee creamer though than just sticking it in coffee? It's actually a secret ingredient...
