Easterners in need of a coffee fix will have a new option starting February 24.
Wichita’s second HTeaO franchise, which opened in December near the northeast corner of 21st and 127th Streets, is adding coffee and other hot beverages to its mostly tea menu.
“It’s almost like a second pitch,” said Jacob Albracht, news and sports anchor at KWCH, Channel 12, who owns the franchise with his wife Michelle.
Coffee options were just becoming available when they opened their first HTeaO near 13th & Tyler in 2021, and Jacob Albracht said it will be some time before they’re available there.
“We haven’t gone down that road yet.”
It’s all a lot to offer, he said. Coffee wasn’t initially available on the east side because she said she had to fully train the staff on tea first. It will be worth it, Albracht said.
“Our house drip black coffee is so good.”
If you’re in the far east and looking for a coffee fix, you’ll soon have a new option with a variety of flavor offerings.
He said the 21st Street thoroughfare is convenient for people to grab coffee on their way to Wichita before hitting other coffee shops.
“And we think ours is better.”
There will be a variety of flavor offerings — such as Irish cream and nutty, root beer and Texas chai tea — along with traditional coffee drinks and hot tea, he said.
“There’s just a lot of really cool stuff.”
