WICHITA — Just in time for chilly weather, Tim Wiesner plans to serve fresh-brewed coffee to go at his Fresh Roast Coffee at Clifton Square at 3700 E. Douglas.
He opened his business in 1996 but had only wholesale specialty coffees to offer.
Now, he's opening his doors — or window, as he likes to put it — to any customer.
"It's something I wanted to do a long time," Wiesner says.
His shop is only about 250 square feet.
He says that may be tiny but the shop "still contains enough caffeine to get every Olympic athlete in the world disqualified from competition."
For now, Wiesner will have coffee and biscotti. In the spring, he plans to add ice cream, pies and other baked goods.
The retail business opens Wednesday and will be open daily except Sundays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. — or until Wiesner runs out of fresh coffee.
He'll also continue to sell coffee at Green Acres Market & Deli.
