Swanky swigs, monocle and all

It’s nice to see Mr. Peanut getting some competition—or at least some company, after all these years. Cultured Coffee is the latest on the scene of a highly caffeinated Stark County, especially downtown, where four coffee shops already have taken root during the past 10 years.

Some things do set Cultured Coffee apart—namely, beans roasted by Coffee Tree Roasters in Pittsburgh, the homey, (shabby) chic interior, and of course, a mustachioed main man.

So, far be it for us to take owner Heath Hamlin & Co. to task simply for giving the people what they want, because apparently they want coffee.
