Family business offers fresh drinks, doughnuts
By Erin Thompson
Those who prefer the more caffeinated things in life have a new option for their coffee needs.
The Daily Buzz, at 62 E. Main St. in West Jefferson, opened its doors for the first time in February.
The new coffee shop offers different types of drinks, such as hot or iced coffees, lattes and macchiatos, as well as doughnuts, baked in-house.
Owner Stacy Trimmer describes her shop as a “small, family operation.”
Stacy makes all the coffees, while her two teenage daughters, Sierra and Jada, help man the register.
After 20 years in the dental insurance industry, Stacy said when the space next door to her husband’s barbershop, At The Buzzer, became available, she decided just to go for it.
“The people have always been great here,” said Rich, Stacy’s husband and owner of the barbershop.
It’s taken roughly six months to get the business off the ground.
Stacy got the keys to the unit in July and “totally gutted” the interior, a task she described as a “labor of love.”
The coffee beans are freshly roasted in Columbus and the doughnut choices are varied, from the classics, such as bismarks and long johns, to a bit more unique, such as maple bacon and cinnamon toast crunch.
Fully embracing the coffee-shop archetype, The Daily Buzz has comfortable seats, free Wi-Fi and mellow music.
Stacy, who has heard Madison County residents are known to go all the way to Galloway for a well-made cup of coffee, hopes that people will try something a little closer to home.
“I want people to come hang out… it smells good in here, feels good… it’s a happy place,” she said.
