THE DREAM OF MATT ROBBS
Matt Robbins has been the lead barista and coffee shop manager in Knoxville TN for over 10 years. He listens, he trains, and most importantly, he loves. If any of you have had the opportunity to meet Matt, you’ll know his talents in coffee, baking, and restaurant management are something truly special. After helping the coffee culture of Knoxville blossom into what it is today, it’s finally time for Matt to take the reigns.
At first, Coffee was a soul passion. Something about the grain, the smell, the conversations that would happen over them.. it wasn’t just a job, it was a lifestyle. Surrounded by good coffee and good people, it soon came to light that the missing ingredient to a perfect place was - good food. Matt tested his skills in cooking and baking and quickly found his niche...
Can a biscuit really be that good? Is it actually something worth exploring on my own? Could I actually do this for life? Questions soon consumed Matt’s mind as he catered left and right to customers from around the globe. He served award winning lattes and dream-worthy breakfast, but he did so for others, not even for himself.
We believe it’s Matt’s time to run things on his own. That he’s payed it forward time and time again to Knoxville, and now it’s our turn to help his dream shop become a reality. With so many helping hands already... a space has been secured, and equipment has been ordered... now we just need your help to open the doors!

Risks and challenges
"This is it for me. Its really all or nothing. I've left my job, started my LLC, got my business account, secured my space, found a roaster, ordered my equipment - I'm ready to do my own thing, and it seems like everything is aligning perfectly. I'm ready to do this."
