The Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau has launched a new trail! The Butler County Coffee Connection is a self-guided tour of local coffee shops where you can savor the flavors of your favorite latte, frappé, or chai tea at 11 stops in a variety of charming towns.
Create your own itinerary and fill up your passport with a specially designed symbol from each location, then move on to the next stop at your leisure. Once your passport is complete, take it to the Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau to claim a commemorative prize. The Bureau’s office is located at 310 E. Grandview Ave., Zelienople. Passports can be picked up at participating locations, the Tourism Bureau or any of the Bureau's 35 brochure racks throughout the county.
The 11 participating locations include Bloom Cafe at Quality Gardens, Cannella Café, Coffee Brake at Meeder, Coffee Brake in Evans City, Cummings Candy & Coffee in Downtown Butler, Cummings Candy & Coffee West, Saxonburg Coffee & Tea, Kairos Coffee Roaster and Tea Co. (coffee truck), Spring & Main Café, The Eatery at American Natural and Wunderbar Coffee & Crepes.
Each location on the Butler County Coffee Connection is unique and offers delicious options for everyone to enjoy. Go to the Tourism Bureau’s website VisitButlerCounty.com/Coffee to learn all about the participating locations, along with the “Specialty Drink” from each business. The “Specialty Drink” is a certain item(s) on the menu that the establishment is known for, or that typically sells the best.
“We have a variety of coffee shops in Butler County, and we wanted to create a way for everyone to explore the area and visit these wonderful businesses,” said Jack Cohen, president of Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau.
"Butler County is quickly becoming a great spot for the culinary industry, filled with talent and creativity. Coffee shops are no exception. I think the Butler County Coffee Connection is just another tool to highlight the unique places that Butler County has to offer and gives people a reason to try them,” said Seth Murphy, owner of Wunderbar Coffee & Crepes.
