Third Space Coffee – Bonner Springs Knows Coffee

This year we decided to make Bonner Springs our Shop Small Saturday destination. This was planned as research for our final article of 2017 for Visit KCK.

Who’s Riding to Blip Coffee Roasters

What do you get when you mix, motorcycles, community, and coffee? In Kansas City the answer is Blip Coffee Roasters. Located at  Mulberry Street in Kansas City, Missouri, this small scale roaster has gathered a large following. The Biker Community We have visited Blip on a few occasions, which are usually First Friday weekends. It's not hard to identify their storefront, since it will usually have at least a few bikes parked out front. Being a biker in my younger days, I enjoy the variety we see when we visit. Where many places only draw one specific type of motorcycle, not at Blip. [...]
