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.

Crowdfunding Platform Aims to Raise Funding for Norandino Cooperative Tree Planting Effort
PORTLAND, OREGON — Heine Brothers’ Coffee, an organic and fair trade coffee roaster from Louisville, Kentucky, and green coffee importing cooperative, Coop Coffees, have announced commitments to support a regenerative agroforestry tree planting campaign in Northern Peru launched by Grow Ahead, a crowdfunding platform that supports small-scale farmers and climate resiliency projects around the world. Through the campaign, Grow Ahead is raising funds for one of Coop Coffee’s producer partners, Norandino Cooperative, aiming to revitalize coffee production in the region while supporting the conservation and reforestation of the local ecosystem. Norandino Cooperative and its producers have also already committed to financially contribute to the project.

We’re hiring for Store Managers!
Heine Brothers’ Coffee starts with a great cup of coffee, but our company is about so much more than great coffee, for our customers and for our employees. This all begins with our commitment to a spirit of business excellence and to running our stores profitably. Without this commitment to business excellence and profit, we would not survive long and would not get the chance to do all of the other things in our community and around the world that matter so much to us.
While we lead with great cup of coffee and a focus on profit, our company and the way we run our stores have always been about more than simply driving profit. From our founding, we have been focused on making a positive impact in our community and around the World. This commitment to a focus on both profit and impact is what so many of us love being part of.
The Store Manager’s job is to oversee the positive and profitable operation of their store. The biggest part of the store manager’s job will be to make sure we hire, train and keep baristas who are committed to delivering remarkable coffee shop experiences to our customers. It is critical that store managers understand how to create and maintain a healthy and positive store environment so that we keep baristas who will care about delivering the remarkable customer experience. Store Managers are expected to set the bar high for baristas in their store, to celebrate great work and to promptly and effectively discipline where necessary.
Store Managers will work closely with their respective Operations Director to promote our values-driven, for-profit culture, tell the Heine Brothers’ story and enhance the HB brand.
