If we were having a coffee …. Well, honestly, we’d probably be in my kitchen, because
I’m cheap … er … love to host my friends.
BUT IF YOU WERE JANE and we were having a coffee, it would be at VINT Coffee on Frankfort Avenue. When we first started meeting there, it was Java Brewing. Now, it’s VINT, and it’s part of the Heine Brothers group. Yes, my pharmacy is Butt Drugs and I drink coffee at a Heine Brothers location. What’s your point?

What’ll we have?
Heine Brothers was established in 1994 by two guys, only one of whom was named Heine. Why they didn’t call it Mays Brothers, I’ll never know. Heine was the bean roaster, so maybe that’s why.

They’re good corporate citizens, good neighbors, activist businessfolks, supporting local events and sponsoring initiatives to help people grow their own and their neighborhoods’ fresh food.
Here’s one of the friendly baristas. We love her. Well, I love her. I can’t speak for Jane. Sometimes she’s kinda sassy, but that cracks me up.
