Coffee has been added to the menu of brews at 5 Stones Artisan Brewery.

Kinnor Coffee, operated by Aaron Brown, is opening in partnership with the brewery at 11335 FM 1863, New Braunfels.

“I personally started to develop a passion for specialty coffee over the last three or four years,” Brown said. “I just [started] in my own home and then started to do a little coffee up here at the brewery and then it started to progress from there.”

The coffee shop is currently open for limited hours and will officially open Jan. 4. The menu will include coffee from around the world, and Brown hopes to expand into coffee roasting in the future.

Kinnor Coffee got its name from the musical instrument played by David in the Biblical story of David and Goliath, Brown said, the same story that gave 5 Stones its name.


“At Kinnor we wanted the coffee to tie into the brewery in some way,” Brown said. “We think we have something special; we think the New Braunfels area could use a more specialty coffee shop.”

Once open, the shop is expected to be open from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays, Brown said. 210-620-0500. www.kinnorcoffee.com
