Goodbye, Safehouse — Hello Black Crown Coffee Company

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Those of you still mourning the loss of the midtown coffee-and-cigarettes emporium The Safehouse can breathe a bit easier (if your lungs allow it) — the Safehouse is being reborn as Black Crown Coffee Company.

We've put out a few messages to the folks behind the new shop, but what we've gathered thus far is this: Black Crown's opening is a labor of love — the shop's Facebook page already has an album full of Tucsonans who are just showing up to offer a hand at scrubbing the smoke and ash off of the walls, rebuilding the interior, and helping however they can.

If this Reddit post (and a bit of Facebook sleuthing) is anything to go off of, the fellow behind the shop's opening is Scott Hinsch, also known to Safehouse regulars as "Big Juicy."

If anyone has any more information, drop us a line.
