Paramour Coffee Brings Collaboration Between Bank and Coffee Shop

At MHK Business News, we love to see innovative collaborations in the business scene of Manhattan. Banks and coffee shops might not be the most obvious combination choice, but one such collab has found success in the Little Apple.

In May 2017, Bank of the Flint Hills opened a new location on the west side of Manhattan in Grand Mere. What was unique about this event was that they also collaborated to bring a mom-and-pop coffee shop from Wamego with them. Paramour Coffee is a specialty coffee roasting company 25 years in the making.

Owner Jim Hovind trained under the legendary Sal Bonavita and Alfred Peet, founder of Peet’s Coffee, and created Paramour Coffee as an homage to these masters. The company’s mission is to make gourmet coffee accessible without “pretense or snobbery.”

A few months in and customers from near and far seem to love it:

This site features modern decor, a drive thru and also an outdoor patio. And apparently, George Strait as well:

You can visit Paramour Coffee at 2005 Clocktower Pl, Manhattan, KS 66503.
