The Mill at Telegraph
The Mill Coffee & Tea is a small-batch craft coffee roaster, espresso bar and tea house located in Lincoln, Nebraska since 1975.
Like all good stories, the details of The Mill’s origins vary depending on who’s telling the story. What we do know is that during a bitter Nebraska winter in the mid 1970’s the folks at a local bike shop had an idea. The everyday “shop” coffee they served left much to be desired, so why not improve on it and at the same time generate a bit of cold weather revenue for the small bicycle shop? This quest turned into something of an obsession and soon their “shop” coffee was causing quite the stir. To these bicycle shop guys, this highlighted a distinct lack of gourmet quality coffee in Lincoln, and coupled with the increasing popularity of their coffee, they decided to open a small gourmet coffee and tea store adjacent to the bike shop. Thus began the first version of what we know as The Mill.
Located at 800 P St. Lincoln, NE 68508
