First, thank you for your continued support, especially during these anxious times.
At Heine Brothers’ Coffee and Vint, we are watching the COVID-19 situation closely. We intend to do all that we can to support our Community’s efforts to contain the virus.
Our top priority is the safety of our customers and our employees. We are following CDC guidance on strategies for employers to best prevent exposure, and we will continue to follow enhanced cleaning and sanitizing practices in our Stores.
We could not operate coffee shops without excellent employees, and we don’t want our employees having to choose between their health and their paycheck. We will continue to encourage all Heine Brothers’ and Vint employees to use our Paid Time Off policy to ensure that employees who are sick are able to stay home.
At this time, all of our Stores – cafes and drive-thrus – are open. If things change in the Louisville / Southern Indiana area, we will modify our operations in ways that best ensure safety.
One simple way to minimize exposure touch points is to use our HB Perks App for scannable tendering of all transactions. The app can be downloaded at either the Apple Store or Google Play and allows customers to pay simply by swiping their phone in front of our reader, thereby avoiding the physical exchange of cash or a credit card. And for those who are not aware, Heine Brothers’ Coffee is available through GrubHub.
Again, thank you for your ongoing support. In addition to delivering a great local coffee experience for over 25 years, we have been and remain committed to making a positive Impact in our community. During this difficult time, we will stay informed and we will do what we can to help our Community most positively move forward.

On a cloudy Friday afternoon I made my way down to our HB-Chenoweth Lane shop. The air was crisp, and as I walked in I could make out a little black ball of fur under one of the tables. As I walked up to the table I was greeted with warm smiles and a little sniff from Finley, a black lab puppy who is currently in training to become an assistance dog. I had an amazing time talking to Bebe Bleakley, Ellen Baldwin, and Barbara Howard. Each of them has done so much for Paws with Purpose and it was great getting to hear their stories.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Locally-owned fair trade and organic roaster will also host an official grand opening celebration February 21
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – (February 14 2020)—Heine Brothers’ Coffee, Louisville’s original fair trade and organic coffee roaster, announced today that it’s newest location is now open at 3060 Gottbrath Parkway, just off I-265 on Highway 62/10th Street in Jeffersonville, near River Ridge. The new 2,000 square-foot café, the company’s third in Southern Indiana, is it’s 18th location and includes a convenient drive-thru as well as an outdoor patio. It is also one of the first businesses open in Bridgepointe Commons, a 77-acre development near the East End Bridge, being developed by Denton Floyd Real Estate Group and Iron Street Partners LLC.
Just past the Andes Mountains is an area of Central Peru called San Martin de Pangoa. Here a cooperative has been formed, the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Pangoa. Founded in 1977 this co-op was made up of 50 local farmers. After its start, the group began to pick up some traction, and by the mid 1980’s the group had grown to 1,200 members. Each member agreed to set aside three percent of every sale for internal investments. This collection was integral to the infrastructure that is still used by the co-op today.
