In September, TexaKona will debut a new concept called TexaKona Coffee Gallery & Gifts inside the historic McKinney Flour Mill, located at 407 E. Louisiana St., Ste. 101, McKinney. This will be a second McKinney location for TexaKona Coffee Roasters, which has been at 3103 N. McDonald St., McKinney, operating as a roastery, coffee museum, coffee bar and gift shop. TexaKona is a brand of coffee beans grown in Hawaii and roasted in Texas.
TexaKona Coffee Gallery & Gifts will allow guests to pick up a bag of locally roasted coffee and learn about the roasting process at the free coffee museum as well as purchasing custom coffee- and tea-related gift sets.
Then in October, the second phase of the expansion is scheduled to open, which will include a coffee shop called TexaKona FM. The new coffee shop will be music themed as a tribute to vinyl rock and will also have 107 drinks for beverage lovers of all types as well as food such as pastries and snacks.
The location on McDonald Street will continue to operate as a roastery, where people can pick up bags of freshly roasted coffee beans. 214-788-5662. www.texakonacoffee.com
