Coffee Expressions opening new location in Springfield

Something new is brewing in Wittenberg University’s Thomas Library.

Coffee Expressions, a coffee shop located at 1111 N. Plum St. #1 in Springfield, will be offering a full-service location on campus at Wittenberg beginning this fall.

The new location will be referred to as, “Coffee Expressions Witt,” and will offer most of the same products that the coffee shop on Plum serves up.

“We won’t have as many sugar-free choices at Wittenberg due to storage limitations, but all of the basics will be available,” said owner Ken Steele, who started Coffee Expressions with his wife, Judy, over 15 years ago. “Every type of drink will be available as well — hot, on ice and frozen/blended.”

Steele said in the near future Coffee Expressions Witt will also introduce pour-over coffee, “for those who enjoy that option or want to try it.”

In addition to coffee, tea and smoothies, Coffee Expressions Witt will offer desserts made by Unbelievable Bakery. Desserts will include brownies, blondies, dipped pretzels, cookies, carrot cake and a others.

“We will not sell sandwiches, salads or other food items,” Steele said. “The vision for the Thomas Library was to make it a place that would be inviting in more ways than just to study or read a book.”

Coffee Expressions also now offer a 10% discount to all Wittenberg students, faculty and staff, at both locations, when they show their campus ID.
