Post Coffee Company

Post Coffee is the newest addition to our favorites list. Since its establishment last year, this local cafe has gained a crowd of loyal regulars because of its dedication to quality. They take a no shortcuts approach by roasting and brewing the coffee beans themselves in-house, after sourcing it through direct trade from Costa Rica. Lee’s Summit coffee-lovers appreciate this straightforward approach, as the result is some truly delicious and high-quality coffee. The decor features wood textures, welded iron, a cozy leather couch, a sleek brew bar. The glass garage doors that can be opened during pleasant weather add an extra dose of cool to the already sleek space. As far as we’re concerned, this new addition is here to stay!
