Another Temple!

Sean Kohmescher, owner of Temple Fine Coffee and Tea, is excited to unveil his second local coffeehouse on Monday, June 29. This new Temple will share the name with the original and admired coffee shop on 10th Street, but will be located in a charming 100-year-old building on the other side of town. I was lucky enough to get a few sneak peeks throughout and am impressed with its full roasting facility, airy ambience and, most of all, the craftsmanship: The coffee bar, tables, chairs, retail shelving and much more were all built from scratch. The same employees that built the place and pour the drinks encourage you to check out Temple’s specialty menu, larger selection of single-origin coffee and rare teas at a grand-opening party on Saturday, July 18 at 6 p.m. The new Temple is located at 2829 S Street; visit the Web site at
