Springfield, Missouri, residents will soon be able to fuel their coffee habit and their indoor plant obsession in one location. Green House Coffee + Affogato Bar plans to welcome guests into its light-filled storefront on Jefferson Avenue at the beginning of November.
Green House will be the first coffee shop in Springfield to use beans exclusively from Onyx Coffee Lab, based in northwest Arkansas. In addition to serving classic espresso drinks and affogatos, it will offer ice cream by the scoop in four rotating flavors. Plus, Green House is partnering with Lee Botanical to fill the space with house plants galore for both aesthetic enjoyment and purchase.
Owner Caleb Alwardt has worked as a barista at local haunts such as Cherry Picker Package x Fare, European Café and the now-shuttered Rove Coffee. Alwardt wants Green House to be a place where everyone feels at home, so expect a living room-like setup with cozy couches and pops of pink.
“What’s most important to me is creating a queer-inclusive space and paying everyone a livable wage,” Alwardt says.
