Last year, our preferred espresso machine partner La Marzocco introduced a brand-new competition called Crush The Rush. Typical coffee & latte art competitions can get serious, so La Marzocco wanted to do something different – something fun – that focused on speed, efficiency, and community. With this Crush The Rush was born.
This year, Nashville was chosen as one of the 5 hosting cities, and several coffee companies from the Louisville area made the trip down to compete, including our own team (known as Space Kats and Demon Dogs) of Joe Dininger (HB’s Training/QC Manager), Georgia Lacy (shop manager at Vint), and Layne Sanders (assistant shop manager at Vint). They were accompanied by Tess Lindsey (shop manager at HB-Blankenbaker Pkwy) and Evan Cooke (HB’s Digital Marketing Coordinator) to document the event (and maybe for emotional support as well). In the end, Space Kats and Demon Dogs walked away with the Second Place prize!
We asked them a few questions about the event:
The Community Foundation of Louisville hosts Give For Good Louisville, the biggest day of local giving, this Thursday September 12. With budgets being cut all around, this year’s Give For Good Louisville could be the most important ever. Through matching donation prizes, community members can have their donations made even more impactful for the groups that make our community a great place to live, work, and play. Check out #GiveForGoodLou and www.giveforgoodlouisville.org for more information.
Impact is one of the four Core Values here at Heine Brothers’, and we’re lucky to have a staff that also see that as an important part of everyday life. We asked our staff about some of the non-profits that they support, and here is what they said:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Heine Brothers’ Location at State Street in New Albany is Now Open
Locally-owned fair trade and organic roaster will also host an official grand opening celebration Feb. 15
NEW ALBANY, Ind. – (February 5 2019)—Heine Brothers’ Coffee, Louisville’s original fair trade and organic coffee roaster, announced today that its new location at 414 Daisy Lane and State Street in New Albany, IN is now open. The new spacious 2,000 square-foot café will be the company’s 16th location and will include a convenient drive-thru as well as an outdoor patio.
Artist Monica Mahoney, best known for her art car creations for 21C Hotel including the red bejeweled limo, is working on a mural that will hang inside the new café. Mahoney is reproducing a vintage postcard of the second K & I Railroad Bridge, which was completed in 1912 and featured a remarkable rotating swing span that opened for the passage of ships in high water.
Friday, Feb. 15 at 9 a.m., Heine Brothers’ will hold an official grand opening ribbon cutting celebration at the State Street location. That morning, the first 200 customers will receive a grand opening pack, which includes a limited-edition Heine Brothers’ New Albany reusable travel mug packed with special offers.
“This October will mark 25 years since we opened our first café,” said Mike Mays, Co-founder and President of Heine Brothers’ Coffee. “We’re proud that each of our cafés, including New Albany, have their own unique feel. More than anything though, I think we continue to win over customers because we are focused on both delivering a great cup of coffee and making an impact in the community and around the world.”
Heine Brothers’ will soon open a new café at 3541 Outer Loop, just off I-65 in the Okolona neighborhood. A location at the new Bridgepointe Commons development at Gottbrath Parkway and Ind. 62 in Jeffersonville could open by the end of 2019.
Hours for the new State Street café are:
Monday – Thursday 6 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Friday: 6 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Saturday: 6:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Sunday: 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
