About Illumine Coffee
Illumina Coffee Co has been roasting coffee in Indianapolis for the last few years, and they just opened their first full standalone café in Nora! We’re super excited to have Illumine on the Indianapolis Coffee Guide.
I first met Illumine as they were starting to roast coffee. Kent, who owns Illumine with his wife Anna, came into the coffee community because it is a community. He cares a lot about the coffee he roasts, but more than that, he cares about being intentional in everything that Illumine does, including how they are part of the community—both the coffee community and the actual Indianapolis community.
You may know Illumine because they’ve been floating around different farmer’s markets the last few years. They also opened a coffee counter inside the Indianapolis Art Center.
This new café is a beautiful new space in Nora near the intersection of Westfield and 86th, which is especially exciting because you all have been begging for a local coffee shop option in that area for as long as the Coffee Guide has been around.
I love everything at Illumine. One thing that you all seem to love is their specialty drinks! I always order a pourover (it’s roasted in the back and Kent always provides solid recommendations), but I’ve been tagged in a ton of photos of their specialty drinks.
