Six Shooter Coffee
Visitors to the Waterloo Arts and Entertainment District this upcoming spring can look forward to a fresh face in the neighborhood, Six Shooter Coffee! This eclectic coffee shop aims to make its mark on the District with its unique approach to serving up your daily cup of Joe!
Owned and operated by Peter Brown, Six Shooter is housed in a mixed use building that features the coffee shop, as well as an art gallery that is set to feature new upcoming local artists and their work. In addition to the physical gallery, Six Shooter will also feature local artists’ work along their walls that is all available for purchase on site. Located directly above the gallery and coffee shop, will also be a visiting artist apartment that artisans and crafters can rent while working on their craft in the neighborhood.
As for the quality of the coffee, it’s an art all in itself! Many of the drinks, drip and brewed are organic, and all are micro roasted, meaning the roasting process is done in small batches and without any chemicals. The food and produce is just as delicious, and also supports a great cause. Rather than making food in house, all produce and baked goods are locally sourced from Cleveland based favorites including: the Cleveland Bagel Company and Poison Berry Bakery to name a few.
“At Six Shooter our mission is really to the core to support local, shop local, eat local. We want to really draw attention the Cleveland community as a whole, and what is has to offer,” said Brown. “Beyond bringing fresh delicious coffee and drinks to the neighborhood, we wanted to go a step beyond and really create an authentic Cleveland experience in the shop as a whole. That’s where the idea came in to partner with local businesses and artists. Stepping into Six Shooter is a unique experience in itself. You’re not just supporting one business, you’re supporting an entire neighborhood.”
Directly next door to Six Shooter is BRICK Ceramic + Design Studio, owned and operated by Valerie Grossman. Together Brown and Grossman have collaborated on the vision of Six Shooter and its goal to promote local artisans and businesses. Grossman actually runs the gallery space located in the building. In addition to being neighbors, the business partnership between the two began when Brown and Grossman previously worked for the same coffee shop.
“Valerie and I get along really well,” said Brown. “We thought by teaming up, we could really provide our customers with both a tasteful and cultural experience! Valerie has been an incremental part in helping make this vision a reality. Not to mention, she also designed and created all of the mugs that will be used in the shop! Pairing two of our favorite things, arts and coffee just seemed like a natural partnership to us!”
