We see A Cup of Common Wealth as something bigger than just another place to get a caffeine fix — we aren’t looking to be Tambourine Men. We're looking to provide, for everyone, what draws us to the industry – the community, the culture, and incredible cups of carefully, crafted coffee.
Coffee flows through our lifeblood. Hot cups have served as both teachers and friends over the years, but more importantly; they have provided a venue to create and cultivate our lives’ most meaningful relationships. Whether it’s been in cupping rooms, origin trips, Tuesday night Redeyes, esoteric coffee shops, big cities, little towns, or in a mass barista training, the sense of community has always been present and powerful.
That is what A Cup Of Common Wealth is designed to provide: a place to celebrate each other. A place to share smiles and stories, conversations and banter, to make new friends and reconnect with old ones...all facilitated by fine, artisan mugs of coffee.
The same sense of community we find in coffee is what makes the Bluegrass State a true home. To celebrate Kentucky is to celebrate community.

Blue Door Smokehouse is Lexington’s premiere BBQ restaurant. Specializing in central Texas style brisket, we also offer wonderful pulled pork, pulled chicken, smoked sausage, and baby back ribs. Our guests also love our sides, especially our potato salad made with red potatoes, sour cream, dill, and green onions. Our promise is that we smoke fresh daily and never serve reheated meat. We strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience, both with the food and equally with warm and friendly service. Established in 2014, we are happy and proud to be one of Lexington’s favorite places to eat!
In July 2004 Will Pieratt and Kevin Heathcoat took a huge leap of faith and opened Bourbon n’ Toulouse by maxing out seven credit cards and simply hoping things worked out for the best. The business plan was simple: cook some damn good food, give back to the community that help keep their lights on and have as much fun as the law allows! Ten years later these guys are still extremely passionate about what they do and they haven’t grown up a bit, just ask their wives! Always cooking and laughing, these guys are serious about having fun. Stop in and sample the wide array of tasty Cajun and Creole dishes, grab a beer from the ever changing selection and drift away to their own little version of The French Quarter.
Not bad for a washed up musician and a retired elementary teacher!
