Be more than satisfied with Amherst Coffee.
If you like hand-crafted cocktails and deliciously smooth espresso drinks, Amherst Coffee is the place for you! Owners who are also brothers, Mukanda Feldman and Ash Crawford have built Amherst Coffee and their coffee retail business Quivr together since 2005/2007. As we all know in mid-March of 2020 most businesses closed their doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Amherst Coffee was one of those businesses that unfortunately closed but they decided to let those uncertain times spark a creative approach to their customers needs. Several weeks after the initial shutdown Amherst Coffee offered home delivery services for Hampshire County with a wide variety of products. With Amherst Coffee working as a coffee shop and cocktail bar they got creative delivering food (specialty lobster rolls on Thursday nights), drinks (coffee, beer, wine etc.) and essential items.
Mukanda gave me such encouraging words about his community, “The community has been great. They have been patient and loyal and they’ve done a great job of navigating the weirdness of online ordering. The town has been fantastic to work with too.” I also asked if Mukunda had anything he would like to say to his community and his response, “The best thing we can all do is try to be patient, loving and understanding and supportive of one another. The most important thing is the health and safety of our staff and customers”.
