There’s more to your cup than just coffee at The Well Coffeehouse, a newly opened java joint in the heart of Green Hills. A self-described “non-profit missional Coffeehouse,” The Well is committed to serving the community by donating a portion its proceeds to help others in Nashville and around the world. The concept is simple: Buy a cup a coffee, and your money goes toward helping others in need.
Co-Founders Chris Soper and Rob Touchstone say that The Well is, at its heart, about community.
“I feel like I found what I was born to do,” explains Touchstone. “We knew that we wanted to do something that would build a community. We wanted to do something that was more than just serving coffee … we exist to love people and use the money that is made at The Well to love people outside these walls.”
Comfortably nestled on Richard Jones road just a stone’s throw from downtown and a skip away from the fabulous shops in Green Hills, The Well is already becoming a Nashville hot spot. The outside features comfortable orange painted wooden benches on the front patio, and inside is an urban chic interior, with stylish burlap sack chair covers made from the bean sacks from Just Love Coffee in Murfreesboro. Music from the likes of Mat Kearney, Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers can be heard through the wooden interior as customers sip on specialty blends and blog away on The Well’s free Wi-Fi.
The atmosphere is inviting and relaxing, and every item in the shop has its own special story. Handmade leather bags, belts and custom leatherwork, created by men and women with the Mission Lazarus Project in Honduras, adorn the shelves. Photos of children above the serving bar tell the stories of mission trips to Africa. And, the “Wishing Well,” (in lieu of a “roommate wanted wall”) punctuates the overall commitment to community service by creating a place for anyone to post a need (or help others fulfill theirs).
In July, Derek Webb and Matthew Perryman Jones kicked off a fundraiser for Blood: Water Mission at The Well, setting the stage for the coffeehouse to host more fundraisers, community events, and live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
The Well Coffeehouse is open Monday – Saturday, from 6 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. – 10 p.m.
The Well is gearing up to host the American Cancer Society on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m.
