I am thrilled to announce the launch of The Weekly Wave: our new weekly newsletter dedicated to bringing you the best local coffee shops in Indianapolis, highlighting one shop each week that you absolutely must visit.

Each week, we’ll be featuring a different coffee shop in Indianapolis, giving you an inside look at their unique offerings, atmosphere, and specialties in a new and intimate way.

By subscribing to The Weekly Wave, you’ll be the first to go behind the counter at our favorite local coffee shops in Indianapolis.

We’ll be kicking off our first edition of The Weekly Wave very soon where we’ll give a deep dive into our friends at MOTW Coffee & Pastries.

Here’s how it works

This is the easy part! To keep your inboxes cleaned, we’ll be using Substack! Substack makes it easy to put these emails together and creates a beautiful newsletter for you to read in your inbox or in the Substack app. Easy.

Oh, and the best part? The Weekly Wave will always be free! Substack does offer paid subscriptions, but I will not be posting any content behind a paywall. Any paid subscriptions will go toward keeping the Indianapolis Coffee Guide up and running (and the occasional cup of coffee).

We’ll also occasionally be including small sponsorship slots which give local non-coffee businesses the opportunity to show their support for the community and the Coffee Guide. If you’re interested in learning more about sponsorships, you can learn more information here.

Why a newsletter? And why now?

I have always loved email newsletters. Not marketing emails, but true, valuable newsletters that I receive on a regular schedule and are full of valuable, informative content about one of my interests. I love when they are not over-designed and are easy to read. I love that they become an event, not just an email. And that’s what I want to do for you.

The idea also comes from YouTube streamers. My husband is a gamer, and he follows a lot of pretty big streamers. Sometimes at the end of a stream, a streamer will send everyone watching on a ‘raid’ to go view another smaller streamer’s stream to help them out and foster a community. The Weekly Wave will kind of be like that. It’s me saying, “Hey! Go check this place out this week!”

The Weekly Wave will be an engaging weekly newsletter that will be full of valuable content that is relevant, easy to read, and connects you to local coffee shops like never before. It will always be free, and you can opt out at any time.

We are excited to bring you the best of the best in local coffee shops and to help you discover new places to enjoy your favorite brew. So don’t wait, subscribe to The Weekly Wave today and never miss a beat in the Indianapolis coffee scene.

Thank you for your support and we can’t wait to share our love of coffee with you. Cheers!
