New coffee shop prepares for opening in Tamaqua

TAMAQUA, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) -- A coffee shop is ready to open in schuylkill county, but there's more than coffee on the menu.

Maybe you need a cup of courage, a cup of hope, or a cup of coffee! No matter what you're craving, you can find it here at "Hope and Coffee" in Tamaqua.


"This is my happy place," said shop founder, Lisa Scheller.

Lisa Scheller has backed this project from the beginning. As someone who's been clean and sober for nearly 40 years, she knows how important it is to have a strong support system.

 

At this new coffee shop, the employees are in recovery. Like Chris Blevins who's been working on the construction crew. Soon, he'll switch gears and start brewing coffee behind the counter.

 


"I know this place is going to bring hope to people to see that there's a better life," said Blevins.

 

Funded through private donations, this quarter of a million dollar coffee shop will open its doors soon. After a successful soft opening on July 4, the grand opening is just days away.

 

The grand opening of "Hope and Coffee" will be July 19 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m., live entertainment throughout the day and of course a lot of coffee!
