This coffee bar from Andrew Atkin, Joshua Atkin, and Michael Teahan has been a hidden gem in a residential neighborhood across from Adams Square Mini Park since 2017. KAFN promises “f-n good coffee” and delivers with a multi-roaster line-up that includes LA’s Unity, Arkansas based Onyx Coffee Lab, Topeka-born PT’s Coffee, and local Boketto Cold Brew. They use a three-group lever espresso machine to power unique drinks like Julio’s Pamplemousse, cold brew with pulpy fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and agave sweetener served over ice. The Shamrock was a March special for St. Patrick’s Day, an iced minty matcha that hopefully resurfaces. KAFN’s house-made syrups come in flavors like caramel, lavender, and pumpkin spice, and they also serve spicy chai on tap made with almond milk.
