Black Crown Coffee Co. Is Open

Posted By on Fri, Oct 26, 2012 at 3:16 PM

Hey folks, it appears that Black Crown Coffee Co., raised from the ashes (and tar) of the original Safehouse Espresso Bar, is now open at Safehouse's old location, 4024 E. Speedway.

Scott Hirsch, Black Crown's owner, has been working like a man possessed alongside a number of Safehouse regulars who volunteered their time to put the new place back together.

I haven't been down to the refreshed digs, but having walked around mid-remodel with Hirsch a few weeks ago, I can tell you that the reconstruction has been a labor of love for all of those involved.

This was posted yesterday, on Black Crown's Facebook page:

You all are absolutely amazing. Opening this business was terrifying and exciting at the same time. There were so many moments where we thought we had to throw in the towel and walk away. Every step towards opening the doors was met with huge amounts of problems, there is no way we could have done this without the massive amount of support, hard work, and dedication from all of you. From the bottom of our hearts here at Black Crown... thank you.

Good stuff. For more info, give their Facebook page a look here — or just head down there and grab a cup tonight.
