Fair Trade and Organic Roaster has transformed building near Mid City Mall
LOUISVILLE, Ky. –Heine Brothers’ Coffee, Louisville’s original fair trade and organic coffee roaster, is soon ready to relocate its café at the corner of Bardstown Rd. and Longest Ave. to a larger building in front of Mid-City Mall at 1250 Bardstown Rd, just a stone’s throw away. Heine Brothers’ expects to close the old location on Thursday, May 31, at 11:00 AM. Pending a few final inspections, the new location will open for regular business hours on Friday, June 1 at 6:00 a.m.
“Our customers have been asking for more space, so we’re delivering for them. The new store is 2,000 sq. ft.,” said Heine Brothers’ President Mike Mays. “We completely transformed the new location to make it blend in better with the unique feel of Bardstown Road. We ended up expanding the café even more than originally planned and we’re thrilled with it. The 15 ft. stone customer seating counter just inside the wood framed café window is going to offer some of the best people-watching opportunities of anywhere on Bardstown Rd.”
Heine Brothers’ also hired up to six new baristas to staff the new, larger café, which will also include an easily accessible drive-thru.
“Each of our cafés have their own feel to fit with the local neighborhood,” Mays said. “The Highlands is where it all started for us, so this is special. We’re going to enjoy the last weekend at the old store, but we’re looking forward to deepening our roots in the neighborhood. We are also happy that the new location is still just a few steps from our longtime friends at Carmichael’s Bookstore.”
