Jenz Java coffee shop will have drive-through, outdoor seating, food

Whether someone is looking for a latte or a biscuit with gravy, Jennifer and Dan Brummer want to make their new dine-in coffee shop — Jenz Java — a place where community members can gather.

Dan grew up in Bennington — a small Kansas town with few choices for dining. 

“As kids, we always wanted someplace to go,” he said. “Our parents and grandparents never had any place to go.”

So, when Dan was speaking with his neighbor in Haven and found out that the building at 202 Industrial Drive was up for sale, he knew he wanted to buy it and open a coffee shop.

The Brummers moved quickly. They had relocated to Haven from Salina last fall and were enchanted by the community. They redid the inside of the small shop, gathered together antique furniture, tacked on metal walls and made the place inviting.

What they came up with is a cozy, eclectic, modern coffee shop.

They also installed a drive-thru.

“If we couldn’t have a drive-thru,” Jennifer said. “We weren’t going to do it.”
