Nexus Coffee and Creative
entrepreneurs for compassionate community
Young professionals, entrepreneurs, and small businesses owners are essential to the building of compassionate communities: the building blocks of an ecological civilization. Philosophers and theologians, teachers and artists, city officials and clergy, social workers and physicians, bricklayers and coffee makers -- all can help. But without young professionals, entrepreneurs, and small business owners, there's really no hope. Big ideas must come down to earth, the world's best hopes must find their legs. Meet Amy Counce of Little Rock, Arkansas. The Nexus Coffee and Creative, which she co-founded, is an illustration. The Nexus Coffee and Creative, along with its remarkable team, partakes of, communicates, and foster that hope.
A DIFFERENT KIND OF COFFEE SHOP
"Straight from the definition, Nexus strives to be a meeting place - a point of connection, meaning, and creativity for our beloved city. The core of our being is community, whether you’re a local, a vagabond, or you’re here for a limited moment, we want that moment to be remembered here."
COFFEE IS A UNIVERSAL LOVE LANGUAGE
"The language of the tired, the busy, and the curious. It’s also the language of family, friends, and community, and is blind to borders and prejudice. A true confidant....We partner with local and non-local coffee roasters to support their business and community, and to give our customers the chance to try coffee from roasters they may never get to try otherwise."
PROUD TO HAVE LOCAL PARTNERS
"Based right here in our community of Little Rock, Leiva’s Coffee is a family-owned roasting company that sources beans directly from producers in rural Guatemala. They have a mission and heart to stop the abuse and exploitation of farmers and the environment by pouring directly back into the farmers and their business. We are proud to partner with the Leiva family!"
"Round Mountain Coffee is based out of Conway, AR, and we are so excited to feature another local business! Their mission is to “pursue excellence in coffee, love our craft, and foster our community.” We will have their Pinnacle house blend on drip, their single-origin Ethiopian on slow bar, and their Ouachita blend on espresso. Come in and try a cup, or take a bag of their beans to go in our retail section!"
"It’s part of our culture and our being, it’s innately in us to create. We want to be a space that not only caters to caffeine, but that is created in itself to allow creativity to blossom. Our variety of seating options allows our customers to find a vibe that fits their needs, whether they need to meet with friends or colleagues or chill by themselves. We also offer two creative rooms that can be rented out if a closed off space is what you’re looking for."
