Navasota – If you start day with a cup of coffee, do we have a stop on The Texas Bucket List for you. Now I have to admit, I didn’t start drinking coffee till my mid thirties, but now it’s hard to not start the day without it. But there is another creature comfort I need each and every day: Rock ‘n Roll music. When we found a coffee shop that combines these two thing, we’ll pulled on over to perk up our palate at the Classic Rock Coffee Company in Navasota.
Bert Miller owns this business, and this is his side gig. His other two careers include home and auto coverage, as well as being the Mayor of Navasota.
“Had a lot of folks that came to me actually, there was just the direction of things that were going, just wanted to see some changes and see some more improvements to the community, so it just kind of drove me that way,” Bert said.
Whether it’s to talk about rates, roasted beans, or just representing the city, Bert can do it all of it at his rocking office. That is, as long as he’s had his cup of coffee.
“I’ll usually drink about a pot in the morning, and usually around three o’clock it’s time to get a jolt to finish the afternoon, and so it’s nice to be able to create my own place where I can come get that,” Bert said.
The building where Classic Rock Coffee is brewing has weathered a few storms in its day. Built in the late 1800’s, it has housed all sorts of businesses.
“We live and work in downtown and to have someplace awesome to be able to come and grab a bite to eat, and a good cup of coffee is always welcome,” Pattie Pederson said.
While Navasota is known as the Blues Capital of Texas, it seems coffee is making a run at the title of most consumed caffeine in a cup. With names like Atomic Punk, Living After Midnight, Barracuda Bite and Back in Black who could pass up putting this down their pipe?
“That really gets you going in the morning,” Bert said.
If you’re looking to rock out with out with some jumping java, the Classic Rock Coffee Company in Navasota is a headbanging, hot spot on The Texas Bucket List.
“Navasota is kind of known for all its little antique shops and everything, there’s a lot of people that come into town,” James Evans said. “It gives them a place to stop and take a break. “
