Louisville is known for a lot of great things, from Bourbon and horses, to Jackman Harlow and Muhammad Ali. But it’s time we celebrate something we do better than any city in America — coffee together.

This site isn’t just a ‘hooray!’ for good espresso, it’s a vibrant shout in honor of the hardworking folks of all backgrounds who roast, barist’, and toast our city to becoming the greatest American coffee city in the world. See what we did there?

Though created by Kale & Flax and curated by designers, entrepreneurs, artists and coffee aficionados alike — this isn’t just a takedown of the corporate coffee chains eating up cities, it’s an homage to the best known secret to humankind — Louisville is for lovers, coffee lovers.
