What it is
Flying machine coffee is a new cafe soon to be located in downtown Urbana. Located in the old Busey building at 208 w. Main Street. We will be sharing the building with Pizza M, and bringing you a coffee experience like no other in C-U.
After five years in the coffee world in Chicago, working with some of the best folks around. I decided it was time to come back to the area and share the love with my home town (I also missed cornfields, weird right?). I will be sourcing coffee from roasters who are very mindful of where they get their product. And even more mindful of how they roast, you will not be disappointed.
Small batch roasted coffee from a wide array of roasters, locally bought produce for smoothies, and specialty drinks that might just get you hooked. Our menu will also highlight special coffees that will rotate often, and many ways to have it prepared. Pour over, chemex, and press pot, with other methods to be added later. Don’t worry, if you don’t know a lot about coffee, the staff (me) will talk you through all manner of flavor profiles, and methods to make sure you get the cup of coffee you are looking for.
what it needs, and what you gets....
I have turned to indiegogo to raise some extra start up funds. Mostly for equipment, supplies, and the initial purchase of all the things. ALL the things. The bigger equipment is already purchased and in pretty great shape (espresso machine, grinders, brewer). But the funds for smaller equipment (brewing tools, iced tea and iced coffee brewers), dry goods (cups, sugar, ect) and obviously coffee, are still needed. The total for this is around six grand, and that’s just to get open. But that’s all I need, the doors open.
As a thank you, I have a few things to offer. Besides undying love, and hugs. They include, free drinks, t-shirts, bags of coffee, and discounts.
If you are in need of money as bad as I am. Don’t worry. Just maybe share this on the world wide Internets. That would be a pretty cool thing to do.
