As I wandered around historic Irvington, I stumbled upon Coal Yard Coffee. You could say I was Recreational Walking down a gravel path on Bonna Ave. Coal Yard Coffee is modest, unassuming building with a small sign leaning against the entrance. Just walking by I wasn’t completely sure what it was and I almost didn’t go in. But, boy, am I glad I did.
Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a strict tea girl. Chai tea to be exact. That was, until I discovered Tinker Coffee Co.
I met the Tinker guys out n’ about in Indy, and started popping into their charming building on 16th St. during my free time. In true Hoosier hospitality form, they never failed to ask me if I wanted a cup of coffee…which I politely accepted, despite my distaste for it.
After the third time this happened, I actually began enjoying the taste…even craving it. And now I completely blame the Tinker guys for my coffee addiction.
