Chesterfield Village has gained a coffee shop by way of Life360 Church.
The venture, called Chesterfield Coffee, opened last month to the public during limited morning hours, said Carl Fauth, pastor at Life360 Chesterfield.
"We had it open to our church for a couple of years," he said of the expanded concept in partnership to serve Classic Rock Coffee.
Fauth said the 2220 W. Chesterfield Blvd. church's coffee shop has been focused on providing products to parents of children in its day care program. Now, with a successful health inspection from the city of Springfield, it's a public shop at the front of the church's lobby, he said. Chesterfield Coffee’s hours currently are 7-10 a.m. for the three-employee shop.
"Eventually, it's something that we want to expand," Fauth said, also noting plans to add food to the menu.
Chesterfield Coffee’s menu includes drip coffee for $2, as well as Americano and cappuccino for $4.
The venture fills a gap in Chesterfield Village, which previously did not have a coffee shop. Village Coffee & Deli, which opened in 2003, is among past coffee shop ventures in Chesterfield Village.
Life360 relocated its Park Crest campus to the Chesterfield Village building after buying the former Palace theater in 2017, according to past reporting.
The first downtown Springfield branch for Arvest Bank opened; a longtime licensed massage therapist became a first-time business owner; and 7 Brew Coffee opened its fourth shop in Springfield.
