A couple’s dream to open and run their own coffee shop is coming true in downtown Easton.

Joseph Langdon and his fiancé Jennifer Murray, owners of the new shop, Three Birds Coffee, said they have always wanted to open up a coffee shop in a “cool building” in a “nice town.” The two are currently renovating the historic building located at 226 Bushkill St., formally called Bull Mansion, in preparation of the opening early 2019.

Langdon grew up in Chester County, Pa., but while living in Brooklyn with Murray, they decided to go back to Pa. “We like the town and location, it’s right near the college. It’s a little bit of a fortune,” Landgon said.

Partnering with the independent company, Passenger Coffee, Langdon said he and Murray plan on “making high-end coffees,” as well as using pour-over coffeemakers and rotating the menus according to the seasons, “allowing people to taste coffee from all over the world.” Kombucha will also be an item featured on the future menu.

The coffee shop will be decorated with antique lithographic press prints, as well as having an artist co-working space “designed to be an inspiring and inviting working community,” according to their website. “Our studio is centered around an antique Hunter-Penrose LittleJohn etching press, perfect for pulling monoprint, woodblock, linotypes, drypoint, and other etching processes.”

Langdon said that they will have membership programs that will allow the public to access their art equipment such as the etching press.

Although the Langdon said they are not sure of future specials for Lafayette students, they plan on hosting special events such as poetry readings and art shows.
