Classen Coffee Company is just one of the many coffee shops new to OKC and has already gained popularity with locals. For the past 50 years the building has sat empty, but after months of remodeling the space now is now used by people in the area for conversation, meetings and relaxing. Located in the Paseo district near Oklahoma City University, students have another option for studying or a place to decompress between classes.

Classen Coffee Co. has a diverse seating area to provide space to sit down at a table or relax in a group in the lounge area. In addition, acoustic Pandora station plays all throughout the shop to boost the mood.

“I liked how they had couches and it had a home-like feeling to it,” Junior Kenzie Tackett said. “One thing I thought made it unique from other places was that they had a photo album with pictures taken throughout the construction process.”

Classen Coffee Company’s website states, “We began with a passion for connecting coffee and culture. From the very beginning, the idea for We are a new shop in an old building that is founded on a desire to partner with local businesses and organizations to strengthen our community. Our shop even shares land with the food pantry of Trinity Baptist Church, who we enjoy serving alongside.”

Senior Taylor Poling, who often goes to Aspen Coffee in Edmond, was ecstatic to see some of the baristas who have worked at Aspen in the past working at Classen now.

“The atmosphere was calm and it was great to see some of my favorite baristas working in one place,” Poling said. “Classen has the best cold brew I have ever had and I cannot wait to go back.”

Classen Coffee Co. has non-coffee options too, such as Chai tea lattes and a variety of hot or iced teas. Milk steamers, hot chocolate and juice is also available for those opposed to espresso.
