Heine’s Big Bro at Against The Grain!

In Louisville, News // on May 1st, 2012 // by // No comment

Against The Grain, one of Louisville’s newest brewers, has made an amazing new beer with two different coffees from HBC!


Louisville-roasted Heine Bros. Espresso was hot extracted pre-fermentation, and Mary Catherine’s Blend was cold extracted and added post-fermentation to give this beer an aggressive bitterness as well as a delicate yet pronounced coffee flavor and aroma. We started this imperial oatmeal stout with a massive amount of high quality Marris Otter malt and added an array of specialties including Oats, Roasted Barley, and very dark caramel Munich. Hefty additions of British hops early in the boil make for a powerful bitterness to balance the high malt sweetness. If your soul stays black even in the sun, this is the beer for you.

Stop by Against The Grain (401 E. Main Street, at Louisville Slugger Field) to try some out – once it’s gone, it’s gone!We also currently serving it at HB-Blankenbaker Pkwy. Try it today!

City of Louisville provides Business Curbside Recycling!

In Louisville, Sustainability // on September 26th, 2011 // by // 4 Comments

by Peter Clark – Equipment & Facilities Manager

Ever since Heine Bros Coffee opened in 1994, our commitment to changing the world one cup at a time has remained at the forefront of what we try to deliver to the community every day. Everyone who works here strives to remember that we are a part of the world and that our actions, for good or bad, have an impact. With this in mind, all nine of our stores proudly recycle everything possible and we are continually finding ways to lessen our carbon footprint (look for our new compostable paper cups coming soon.) Of course, over the years, this has added more work for us. Many, many vanloads have been taken to the recycling dumpsters that are often too full to use. This is where the City of Louisville comes in with a helping hand.

This past April, the Metro Council began offering large, orange recycling carts to businesses in specific districts that are picked up along with the regular recycling service. Obviously, we jumped on this chance to support the city’s new effort and also to let the city support our ongoing one. It delights us to see the city make recycling easier for other local businesses and to help us save some money in gas.

Unfortunately, this service is not citywide just yet. As you know, this past year we have expanded into Germantown and on the other side of the Watterson Expressway and these areas are still waiting to be included in the Metro Council’s new recycling push. As of now, our Longest Ave, Douglas Loop, Eastern Pkwy, and Frankfort Ave stores use those flashy orange carts and their experience has been very positive. We are hopeful that the area of service will expand and all of our stores can take advantage of the Metro Council’s forward thinking.

In closing, we remain so thankful that we live in a city that recognizes the environmental impact of local businesses. It doesn’t only help our company’s personal cause, but smoothes the transition to globally conscious operating for many other storefronts. At the end of the day, providing our expanding community with delicious, fair trade, and organic coffee and tea just became a little easier. And that, is good news for everyone.

2011 Dare To Care Hunger Walk

In Louisville, News // on September 19th, 2011 // by // No comment

Dare to Care Food Bank was founded in 1971, when a stunned Louisville community was confronted with the horrifying news that right in their own city, on Thanksgiving Day, a nine year old boy had died of starvation. The name Dare to Care became the rallying cry of people throughout the area as they joined together to attack the very real problem of hunger in many of their neighborhoods.

As a sponsor this year we set up a booth, offering people participating in the 2011 Hunger Walk samples of our coffee, iced tea, and cold-brew iced coffee. Waterfront Park was filled with people participating, and we were happy to be there!

Louisville Loves Mountains Festival 2011

In Louisville, News, Sustainability // on June 16th, 2011 // by // No comment

On May 20, we teamed up with Carmichaels’ Bookstore and Kentuckians for the Commonwealth for our 3rd annual Louisville Loves Mountains Street Party.  Our goal at this street party is to help raise $$ and awareness in Louisville about the horrible problem of mountaintop removal mining and to highlight the work KFTC is doing to try to stop this form of mining.  The weather cooperated with a beautiful spring evening and we had 1000+ folks turn out to enjoy some live, local music, local food and local beer!  Our featured speaker was Wendell Berry who eloquently reminded us of the importance of nurturing our local economies and of protecting our local, natural landscapes – never have 1000 people been so quiet and attentive just off of Bardstown Road!  The Louisvillians who turned out showed enthusiastic support for KFTC”s work to stop mountaintop removal mining – we raised over $6000 and local writer Sally Campbell and her pateners threw in another $5000 from the process of their book, Saving Kentucky.  It was a fantastic night of community building in Longest Avenue!

Special thanks to the following who donated their time and talents:

  • Local Bands: Beady; River City Drum Corps; Reel World String Band; Relic; Appalatin; Slow Charleston; Justin Lewis.
  • Local Food Vendors: Morel’s Vegan Food Truck and Boombozz Taphouse
  • Local Breweries: BBC and NABC
  • Local Writers: Wendell Berry; Sally Campbell; Bianca Spriggs
