Local coffee lovers can now have a little Plano in their cups wherever they go. Downtown Plano’s 1418 Coffee has started selling bags of its own coffee. In a nod to the popular coffee shop’s location, the house blend is being sold as “K Avenue” and the espresso is called “Downtown Espresso.” The shop plans to sell other single-origin varieties, too. All coffees will be available online as well as in the 1418 Coffee shop.
This year has definitely been exciting for Bryant and the 1418 team. Last week, they opened the second 1418 Coffee in Garland at the intersection of Belt Line Road and Shiloh Road. The company also handles coffee and cafeteria operations at the Hilti North American corporate headquarters in Plano as well as the company’s operations center in Tulsa.
Over the past year, they have been working to establish Celina Coffee Roasters in McKinney as a sister company to the 1418. The new line of 1418 coffee is one of their first offerings. Bryant says it should be available via coffee subscription services soon, and then hopefully other grocery and big box stores.
“We’re going to go really strong with this label and continue looking for other opportunities,” he says.
