A new coffee shop recently opened its doors in the Fox Park neighborhood.
On Fri., Aug. 14, Patrick and Spencer Clapp opened Coffeestamp, located at 2511 S. Jefferson Avenue, for carryout service and patio seating. The brothers, who were born and raised in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and moved to St. Louis in 2012, have operated Coffeestamp as a wholesale roasting business for about a year. Now, they're expanding the brand with a café offering coffee drinks, pastries, sandwiches, salads and more.
Patrick and Spencer also operate a Coffeestamp booth at the Soulard Farmers Market on Saturdays, where they sell bagged coffee. Patrick says they recently relocated to a larger space inside the market, which will allow them to set up a "tiny coffee shop" with cold-brew coffee on tap, among other offerings.
As for the Fox Park location, the two-floor space, which the brothers renovated themselves, features a coffee bar on the first floor and roasting operation on the second. Seating is spread out across both floors, with a handful of tables upstairs, but Coffeestamp is not currently offering seating inside due to occupancy restrictions amid COVID-19.
Naturally, Patrick and Spencer source beans from Honduras, such as their flagship Finca La Alondra, as well as Brazil and Ethiopia. The café's coffee program includes cold-brew coffee, lattes, horchata and tea, while a small kitchen turns out from-scratch dishes including empanadas, sandwiches and salads, as well as pastries, which are available for grab-and-go service or to enjoy at a handful of tables outside.
"We have a full coffee bar and food items and, of course, great coffee that we roast ourselves," Patrick says. "We just can't wait to get it done – our financial loan went through the same day they decided to lock down St. Louis, so we have been doing all of the rehab ourselves. We are just really excited."
Coffeestamp is open Monday through Saturday from 8am to 5pm and Sunday from 9am to 4 pm.
