This is Indah’s first retail location in the redeveloped Dunn Electric Co. building at 2238 Sumter St. Indah was founded by husband and wife Nick and Stefanie Hauser.
Indah Coffee Co. offers espresso drinks, brewed coffee, nitro cold brew coffee, pastries, and freshly roasted coffee, as well as a beer and wine bar.
The Sumter Street location also houses Indah’s commercial coffee roasting operation. The roaster is centrally located in the building and visible from the coffee shop. The coffee cafe also has a “cupping lab,” where coffee can be tasted and tested.
Indah started in 2010 at the All Local Farmers Market at 701 Whaley St., and relocated when it became the Soda City Market on Main Street. Indah will continue to be a presence at the Saturday market, Stefanie Hauser said.
The 12,000-square-foot building that is Indah’s new home was redeveloped in early 2017.
“Cottontown has been so welcoming,” said Nick Hauser. “People have stopped in to say hello and look around. We already feel part of the great community that exists here.”
Indah, which means beautiful in Indonesian, was originally just a coffee roaster, but began serving fresh brewed coffee at the Saturday market in response to customer demand.
Customers always wanted to know, “Where is your retail shop,” Nick Hauser said. “Now we can tell them ‘Come see us at 2238 Sumter St.’”
Indah’s roasting operation has gone from a portable roaster at the farmers market to a commercial roaster supplying coffee to a number of area restaurants and stores including Motor Supply, The War Mouth, Rosewood Market and Earth Fare.
