The Corner Cup Coffee is opening a second location in Tucker, GA
Tucker, GA - After 4 months of negotiations The Corner Cup Coffee is excited to announce that we will opening a second location in the old Tucker Barbershop space located at 2380 Main St., Tucker, GA. The new space is located on the corner of Main St. and Lynburn Dr. just south of Lavista Rd. in Downtown Tucker.
We believe that The Corner Cup Coffee's commitment to supporting local suppliers is a perfect fit for the bustling and ever-growing Downtown Tucker area. The new location will carry the same local vendors as the current shop. Some of our current vendors include: Beanology (Decatur), H & F Bread Co. (West Midtown), Emerald City Bagels (East Point), Heavenly Cakes (Chamblee), Mighty Bucha (Decatur), Duck's Cosmic Kitchen (Decatur), and Montane (Pine Mountain).
Our goal for new location is to serve as a gathering place for the surrounding neighborhoods, schools, businesses, churches and family. The Corner Cup Coffee will also do our best to employ people living within a close proximity to the shop to help create the true neighborhood feel. We are excited to be moving into the forward-thinking City of Tucker that has a focus on creating a strong community built around locally-owned businesses.
Our grand opening date is still being worked out, but look for The Corner Cup Coffee - Tucker to open some time in late 2018.
About The Corner Cup Coffee: The Corner Cup Coffee's original location was opened in 2016 to answer the call of our neighborhood to create a space where we could come together for some coffee and community. Since opening we have become a place where friendships are made, business relationships flourish, and the community gathers. Our belief in community goes deeper than just our customers, we also support local by using coffee beans roasted in Decatur and freshly made baked goods sourced from a variety of Atlanta area vendors. The Corner Cup Coffee is located just inside 285 behind the Citgo on Lawrenceville Hwy and McClendon Drive. Come for the coffee…stay for the community.

The Taste of Tucker
The Corner Cup Coffee is happy to attend this tasty event for the 2nd year!
Over the last 9 years, The Taste of Tucker has grown into one of the must attended events for local residents. The event is a great way people to sample local restaurants without having to order an entire meal. Each vendor will offer small items that will showcase the taste and style of their establishment.
Guests will also get a chance to check out Main St. Tucker, which is home to an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and businesses. All while listening to a couple of local bands fill the atmosphere with their music.
This event isn't just to make your taste buds happy, it also benefits local non-profits. A portion of the event's revenue is donated to local non-profit organizations including NETworks, Camp Kudzu, and Old Town Tucker Merchants Association.
The Corner Cup Coffee is honored to be included in this event even though we are only Tucker Adjacent (as of right now). This year we will once again be sampling our hot drip coffee and our house-made slow steeped cold brew.
Stop by our booth, meet some of our staff, and enjoy a cup of Joe to go.

Meet Local artist ken Russell
The Corner Cup Coffee is honored to showcase the art of Lindmoor Woods resident, Ken Russell. Ken's works are high quality prints of his original pencil drawings with subjects that include people, animal and objects of beauty. These prints would be an amazing addition to any personal art collection and are priced to fit most budgets.
In Ken's own words:
I am a retired teacher/administrator from Norfolk, VA. I have lived in the Lindmoor Woods neighborhood for the last 18 years. My love for the creative process goes back to my childhood when it seemed I was always drawing or creating something.
Over the years I worked in various media including: painting, sculpture, pen & ink, mixed media, stained glass, and pencil. I became a regular at the annual Ghent Arts Show in Norfolk when I was in my stained glass period. I have recently displayed locally at the ArtTucker show at the Tucker Rec Center.
My creative journey has now brought me to my most recent interest - pencil drawing. Although I have had no formal art training I enjoy the challenge of trying something new. Pencil drawing has opened a whole new world of discovery. I love how you can manipulate pencil lead from very light to very dark. Pencil drawing is som much more forgiving and easier to work with than other media. The challenge of shading, texturing, and detail are most satisfying. My subject matter ranges form the quiet beauty of nature to the deep emotions of the human face.
Ken can be reached at email@example.com or through his Etsy store.

Meet The Artist: Silvia Leyva
The Corner Cup Coffee is excited to host a meet and greet with local potter Silvia Leyva on Saturday August 25, 2017 from 1pm - 5pm. Stop by, check out the unique pottery she makes and get a little insight into what inspires her.
Below is a little bit about Silvia in her own words:
I am an engineer by trade, but I've always enjoyed working with my hands. Whether I'm doing cross-stiching, scrap-booking, jewelry making, or even pulling all the English Ivy from my back yard, I love every minute of it. I'll try anything crafty, even sewing and knitting. Those...didn't stick too well.
Several years ago, I had the opportunity to live in Tlaquepaque, Mexico where there was a local art school which had a pottery class. I fell in love! The moment I came back to the states I looked around and found a local arts center place that I now hold dear to my heart. Pottery has been the best therapy that I have ever found. Working with the clay and bonding with my classmates makes my life better. I have a short attention span and clay's versatility allows me to constantly try new things. Most of my work is done using hand building techniques like coils, textures, and marbled clay but I've also expanded to using the wheel. Most of my pieces use food safe glazes but there are few which were made using the Raku method which is not safe (white crackle or metallic pieces) so check the tag!
Recently, I've started making things with glass. Creating makes me happy! I hope you'll enjoy my pieces and that one will make your life a little happier.

At The Corner Cup Coffee one of our greatest joys is being able to support the people who support us. One of our biggest proponents from the very beginning is Robert Lutgendorf (we call him Bob). If you every want to know more about Bob's work you can find him most mornings sitting at table under his photographs. If he is here feel free to say hello, he is always game to talk about his work or photography in general.
More about Bob:
Robert started his journey in photography with a Petri Range Finder camera while in Amsterdam during the summer of 69. His passion for photography grew as he traveled to wild and remote places during a stint in the United States Coast Guard.
The beautiful places he visited while traveling the globe helped to cement his love for landscape and abstract composition with a smaller focus on street photography. Robert’s work contains both intimate and broad-scope photographs that all tell an extraordinary story about an ordinary subject or scene.
Robert plans some of his photographs in advance so he can frame them to tell the story he wants to portray with the image. However, he does admit that many of his photos are taken on-the-fly based on his unconscious attraction to a scene or situation.
The simple Petri Range Finder camera is long gone and Robert now uses a modern Sony A series camera to capture his stunning photographs and Adobe Lightroom to enhance their beauty even further.
Robert hopes that his photographs of ordinary objects and scenes will evoke an emotional response in you, the viewer.
