Coffee in East Nashville

Image by Amy Balfour

Unrepentantly hipster coffee joint housed inside a huge former transmission shop in East Nashville. Some of America's best beans are put through processes no one but fiendish coffee nerds would understand (V60, Kone, Chemex, etc). The lone turntable preserving vinyl is a mere afterthought. Prepare to wait – the art shall not be compromised.

The espresso comes courtesy of the famed, rare (and hand-built!) $18,000 Slayer machine. You'll find additional locations in Germantown and The Gulch.
