Yes, we’re a specialty coffee and espresso bar, too! Coffee in front, bikes in the back — we call it the retail mullet. Just like on the bike side of things, we want to bring you high quality stuff that we love.

Purple Pour Over Party. We recently added a new brewing method to our menu – the Bee House pour over (in our favorite shade of purple, no less). Choose one of our rotating daily coffees and hold tight – you’ll have a delicious beverage from bean to cup in less than four minutes! A classic twist on a damn fine cup of coffee.
Black Gold. Most of our coffee comes from a roaster we really love — Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters out of Lakewood, Colorado. We are the only shop in Omaha offering Sweet Bloom coffee, and we *love* that we can offer Omaha a menu of rotating, high-quality brews. Our house drip is Hometown, a balanced espresso roast that tastes great black or with a splash of cream. We also use Hometown for our espresso drinks — we love its sweet, mellow profile for all manner of beverages. A rotating list of Sweet Bloom’s single origin selections are available in whole bean, 12oz retail bags. (Beans ground upon request.)

Tea Party. Our out-of-town tea source is Kilogram Tea, originally based out of Chicago. Their classic green & black tea offerings are a fresh & special treat, and their blends consistently delight us. On a local level, we feature several delicious selections from Artemis Teas — these teas are personally blended by clinical herbalist Andrea Comiskey Lawse, based out of the Gifford Park neighborhood. Artemis Teas are available by the cup and in 2oz retail bags.
Pastry Game Strong. We are happy to bring fabulous locally baked goods & pastries to the shop. The wonderful gals at Two Birds Bakery have been supplying us with delicious vegan cookies, cinnamon rolls, muffins & scones for years — you can find them every week on VEGAN VEDNESDAY. On Tuesdays, Fridays & Saturdays we’re pleased to offer donuts from Scratch Baking Co. (another duo of skilled ladies) with vegan/gluten-free options as well. If you’re sensing a pattern, it’s true — we partner with some incredibly talented women business owners!
Our shop offers cozy seating inside, a lovely back deck, and free wifi. Oh! And if you’re a business along Maple Street, we deliver by bike ($5 minimum order). Neat, eh?!
