Instead, Lyons uses her site to display portraits and profiles of some of Louisville’s most creative folks. From the Highlands to Portland to Fern Creek to Old Louisville, its clear to Leslie (and her fellow Louisvillians) that some amazing things are going on in this town.

Heine Brothers’ Coffee Now On UofL Campus!

In News // on June 4th, 2009 // by // No comment

The Ekstrom Library’s Tulip Tree Cafe has been serving HBC coffee since March.

In late March, the Tulip Tree Cafe in UofL’s Ekstrom Library said goodbye to their nationally-known big-business coffee supplier and welcomed locally roasted Heine Brothers’ Coffee as their new partner in the quest to caffeinate campus. Students were polled prior to the change in coffee providers, with the results overwhelmingly favoring the HBC! Thanks to all the students and faculty who voted for a local, fair trade, organic alternative to the “McCoffee” that is so often the only option on college campuses. We are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to be apart of the UofL family!

Baristas To Build Houses In Coffee Growing Country

In News // on June 4th, 2009 // by // No comment

In July, a group of 16 HBC baristas and customers will travel to Guatemala- one of the countries from which we import coffee. While there, they will work with Habitat For Humanity to build houses for families in need.

In the fall of 2006 and spring of 2007, more than 30 Heine Brothers’ Coffee employees traveled to Guatemala with Habitat for Humanity. They were involved in building houses alongside four deserving families. These families each had a different story: hard working parents raising a nine-year-old boy; a young couple eager to have their own home in which to raise their newborn; a single mother whose income was dependant on how many tourists bought bread from the basket that she carried on her head that day; a couple who had dedicated their lives and limited income to caring for their mentally disabled son. Each story was different, but each story was equally moving for the young people who met these families.

Kelly Nusz, manager at the Chenoweth Lane HBC called her time in Guatemala, “The best 10 days of my life thus far.” She went on to say that this experience, “Changed my view of the world and has challenged me to be a better person and give more.” Kelly spent ten days in Livingston, on the eastern coast of Guatemala in May of 2007.

In July, a group of 16 HBC baristas and customers will again travel to Guatemala- one of the countries from which we import coffee. The group will be gone for 2 full weeks, and will work on two cinder block homes while there. This trip is entirely funded by donations from friends, family, and the generosity of HBC customers. If you’d like to help, you can make a donation at any HBC location.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that’s goal is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience action. Habitat is founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety.
