The Caffeinery specializes in gourmet coffees, loose leaf teas, and espresso-based beverages. Whether you’re looking for a morning cup of coffee or a sun cured single origin Ethiopian, you can count on our highly skilled baristas to execute your coffee needs with artistic precision. You can get a cup of coffee anywhere. We want to make it an experience!

The business was founded in 2013 by husband and wife duo, Frank and Lauren Reber. Having been born and raised in Muncie, Frank and Lauren are very familiar with the area. In fact, both of their parents had owned and operated local businesses; Lauren's family owned The Music Room, and Frank's father owns Reber Machine & Tool. They are no strangers when it comes to understanding what it takes to be immersed in a family-owned business and it was this unique background that fanned the entrepreneurial spark in both of them. Aside from the coffee shop, Lauren is a musician and professional photographer that specializes in wedding and lifestyle photography. Frank is a musician and recording engineer who specializes in recording music. However, the common thread that connects all of their interests  has always been coffee.

League of Lattes Debut

Last night Jordan and I had the pleasure of driving down to Indianapolis to participate in the League of Lattes latte art competition. This was our first time attending as it's sometimes difficult for us to make it down to Indianapolis on a Thursday night because we have to work early in the AM on the following day. Alas, we made sure to get nice and caffeinated and made a valiant effort to represent the Muncie coffee culture in Indianapolis. We didn't know what to expect so we went in with open minds and were prepared to go with the flow. For those of you that would be interested in learning a bit of history regarding the League of Lattes competition, you can read all about it via this 2015 NUVO article!

Despite this being our debut appearance, the espresso gods were in our favor on that chilly night. We met a lot of talented baristas and witnessed their amazing techniques first-hand. Jordan and I both managed to make it to what they were calling "the elite 8." It was pretty awesome to see two baristas from The Caffeinery making it that far. By the end of the day I managed to walk away with the second place spot. We were pretty pumped to have represented our home town so well. It was an extremely fun and friendly competition and we look forward to participating in them in the months to come!
