Press release from Brevard College:

Brevard College’s Bill’s Boiler House will become a Brevard College operated coffee shop. Previously occupied by Appalachian Coffee Company, the coffee house will now serve coffee brewed by alum Jotham Lipsi ‘05, owner of Pisgah Coffee Roasters.

“We are very thankful to Appalachian Coffee for running Bill’s for the past few years,” said Dr. Deb D’Anna, Dean of Students, “Brevard College is now in a position to run Bill’s through our food service program. Bill’s Boiler House will be a great addition to our student meal plan. Students, faculty and staff will be able to use meal exchange and flex dollars at the coffee shop.”

As always, the greater community will be welcomed at the coffee shop during regular business hours. “With new hours, pastries, snacks and a cool atmosphere, our hope is for Bill’s Boiler House to become a gathering spot for our campus community and our Brevard Community,” said D’Anna.

Brevard College brought Jotham to western North Carolina in 2004. Like most visitors, he fell in love with the area. In 2010, Jotham and his father established a coffee business supplying single-origin coffee from the Cerrado region of Brazil to commercial clients. Jotham, listening to customer requests, began to source high quality beans from around the world to provide a variety of coffees roasted here in Pisgah Forest.

“Pisgah Coffee Roasters is truly grateful to be partnering with Brevard College, where the idea of starting a coffee roasting company began during my college years. Our gratitude to the College and the community continues to grow as we deepen our connection to the people and businesses of Transylvania county,” said Jotham, “We are a family owned and operated roasting facility and we strive to bring our best to our customers both near and far.  We welcome you to come tour our facility and meet the crew and with the utmost sincerity, we thank you for your partnership!”

Having graduates choose to live, work, play, and serve in the immediate area is a great display of the impact of a Brevard College education. The college is passionate about working with alumni and is thrilled to enter this endeavor with a business owner that truly understands the mission of the college.

Bills Boiler House will close on December 15 and reopen for its’
