“And we kept hoping somebody would do it,” Kelli jokes.
The Geminns opened Square Beans, on the west side of the town square, a year ago March, and it is, indeed, a good fit.
The coffee is single-sourced and is bought from micro-roaster out-of-state. The selection changes weekly. (Yesterday, it was a deep and dark brew from Tanzania.) There’s a full menu of espresso drinks and non-coffee drinks, such as Mexican hot chocolate and caramel apple cider.
Square Beans also has a bakery case full of tantalizing house-made cookies and brownies and cakes from Sugaree’s.
And one more thing: Square Beans serves lunch … pimento cheese, black forest ham and Swiss, roast beef and Provolone all served on fococcia bread.
“We’d really like to get the word out,” Kelli says. “We’re more than just coffee.”
Square Beans is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Square Beans, 103 N. Center in Collierville (854-8855)
