David Rudibaugh has taken the lead on re-opening Wired Coffeehouse in downtown Evansville, on 4th street between Sycamore and Vine.
Wired is serving some tasty espresso drinks from their La Vittoria 2 group machine, as well as offering a rotating variety of brewed coffees, iced coffees and frozen drinks.
One of the more unique beverages they offer is a Japanese Ice Brew, where concentrated, hot brewed coffee is poured over ice using a Chemex brewer, to make a unique cold beverage that is full strength and very refreshing. This works great with lighter roasts where you can taste the more fruity flavors.
I hung out for a while on a late-morning midweek day, and the atmosphere was pleasant and mellow, with a few road warriors, acoustic music on the sound system, and customers wandering in every few minutes, with no wait for ordering.
The barista is very intent on making the best possible coffee drinks, and has partnered with Sunergos Coffee in Louisville, KY for their beans. So far, this is working out great for them.
