How many coffee shops can downtown Little Rock support? We’ll find out this summer when yet another new shop, Nexus Coffee and Creative, opens at 301B President Clinton Ave., next door to the departed Ten Thousand Villages and across from Revolution.

Amy Moorehead of Little Rock, the owner of the coffee shop, has posted a video on the business’ Facebook page saying Nexus will be a family-owned-and-operated coffee and co-working space with a mission to promote entrepreneurship.

Recently, Blue Sail Coffee Roasters opened in the street level entrance to the Little Rock Technology Park at 417 Main St. Zeteo Coffee, which like Blue Sail originated in Conway, is continuing the competition by opening in the former Clinton Museum Store space at 610 President Clinton Ave. (Blue Sail locations in Conway are at 1028 Front St. and on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas; Zeteo’s Conway coffee shop is at 911 Oak St.) Both Zeteo and Blue Sail are socially conscious: Blue Sail partners with Long Miles Coffee Project, which works with coffee growers in Burundi, and Zeteo pledges 5 percent of its profits to the clean water project Living Water International.

With long-time coffee brewer Andina Cafe on Third Street and Starbucks in the Little Rock Marriott, there will be five specialty coffeehouses within walking distance of the Arkansas Times’ office. Expect hyper-buzzed reporting.
