Our Story

We’ve been serving up good joe on the go since 2005, now we're a Derby, KS staple. Luciano’s Coffee Barn was our humble beginning, before the Starbucks drive thru had made an appearance in the area. Luciano crafted our private roast that is still used today. Carmon Davidson took on the shop and rebranded as The Coffee House. Eventually moving from the mini shack to the current 1815 E Madison building.

 

As the coffee craze continues we see a lot of new faces each day but we also have a huge following of frequent customers that we have become familiar with. If you make an appearance enough, you're likely to be remembered by our baristas who may even have your drink ready by the time you pull up to our window each time! We really appreciate the support we have received from the Derby community over the years which enabled us to expand and open an additional location inside The COOP location on the west side of Derby in April of 2020.

 

We pride ourselves on providing quick, personable service while serving up drinks tailored to each customer. With over 20 flavor options, almond, oat, & coconut milk, decaf espresso, and over 10 sugar-free flavor options, we eagerly accommodate your dietary & taste preferences for that perfect cup of joe. 

 

If coffee isn’t your thing that’s okay, we have tons of delicious options: fruit smoothies, hot cocoa, sodas, red bull spritzers, chai tea lattes, london fogs, freshly brewed hot and iced teas, freezers, and steamers! 

 

Swing on by, grab a treat or two and don’t forget to grab our Coffee Club card. We look forward to seeing you!

Bought The Coffee Barn from Luciano in 2003. With her dedication and emphasis on excellent customer service, she has brought The Coffee House to what it is today. She since has moved to the parking lot behind Casey's General Store and you'll often see cars lined up wanting some good joe on the go. She spends a lot of time watching her two daughters softball tournaments and spending time with them. She enjoys taking family vacations (especially when there's a beach involved), long-distance running, hanging out with friends, and has been a huge Jimmy Buffet fan since 1995! Her go-to drinks are: a House Coffee, the London Fog, and Peppermint Fog
