So, you guys all know how much I love coffee, right? (Nod your heads up and down….) AND how much I love music? Well, it should come as no surprise to you, then, to learn that I am absolutely mad about Joplin Ave. Coffee Co, which opened on April 10, 2012. Located at 506 Joplin Ave., Joplin Ave. Coffee Co. is a retro-inspired coffee house that features delicious espresso drinks (I tried the caramel macchiato – delish!), refreshing blended frozen beverages, Italian sodas, specialty teas, and various freshly prepared pastries ad sweets from Joplin's own Garrett's Bakery. AND, starting this Saturday evening, Joplin Ave. Coffee Co. will host live music from local performers!
I was introduced to owner Kristy Warner and JACC when I played there for April’s Third Thursday Art Walk. At the time, JACC had only been open for a week but they had already developed a loyal following, and rightfully so. The shop is artfully decorated, the menu is extremely creative, and the staff is top-notch. By agreeing to be a host for the Art Walk, Joplin Ave. Coffee Co. immediately established itself as a local enterprise committed to supporting the local arts. In the short time they have been open they have also sponsored events such as the Walk MS Marathon and look forward to hosting an adopt-a-thon for the Joplin Humane Society and the upcoming MS 150.
