Kansas City Hipsters Save Troost?!?!

Actually, this is a good faith effort of a small local biz working to not only cross a Kansas City dividing line but also inspire more inner-city investment. It's rare locals put their money where their mouth is on this topic so this coffee place deserves respect even if their efforts might find surprising opposition from East side residents as well as low-key middle-class skepticism . . . Then again, nobody ever said doing the right thing was easy:

Blip Roasters Has a New Spot at 30th and Troost

Davis bet on the West Bottoms four years ago when he opened the first location of Blip Roasters. He saw the opportunity to build community around a coffee shop. Now he's hoping to find similar success with the newly opened Blip Roasters Troost Avenue at 1106 E. 30th St.

Troost is looking better than it has in years. Escpecially area a bit south of there, UMKC/rockhurst area. It’s a quiet comeback. Hopefully the city planners will leave it alone.

I agree with 9:24. 10:26 can’t stand the truth because he is obsessed with an old mans shit.

Things change; the weather ain't the same as 50 years ago, either. And Lawrence Welk no longer puts out a show, geezers - what you're seeing are reruns...

30th & Troost is where about 7 years ago a guy raped a passed out woman at the bus stop because, and I quote, "I thought she was dead." Good luck dude, you're going to need it.

That's honestly not a bad spot for a coffee shop. I'll be checking this place out soon. Love the west bottoms location.

I can’t see negroes supporting a gourmet coffee shop unless he’s going to sell prepaid phones and hair extensions there too.
