The coffee shop was made to be a meeting place for the public and for the occupants in the 50 small offices in the building. The Innovation Den was created to incubate small businesses and entrepreneurs in our area. Cody Peterson and Richard Thrasher bought the 100+-year-old building after it had sat vacant for over 25 years! The character and beauty still remain inside, much of the original walls, bricks and beams were kept as they were

Hello, my names Alli. I started my coffee journey working at Dutch Bros in 2015. Through the years I’ve worked at multiple coffee shops in Southern Idaho, Oregon and Coeur d’Alene. I feel like I finally found my home here at CCC in October of 2022. Since I’ve started here I’ve made great connections with my co-workers and have had the chance to meet the best customers! I absolutely love learning different things about coffee from how we get our beans to the roasting process to creating latte art. My go-to drink is a hot agave, vanilla & cinnamon breve. Outside of work you’ll catch me out in nature. I enjoy being on the mountain hiking, swimming and exploring the vast wilderness around us.
Hey, I’m Katelyn! I started in April of 2022. The fast pace environment, amazing coworkers, & friendly customers always make coming to work something to look forward too. When I’m not at work I love to travel, volunteer at church, spend time with family, or be with friends! My favorite drink would have to be an iced extra sweet Silver Lake.
To me, roasting is like commandeering a sailboat. This has made me realize that one day I'd like to have a roaster that is capable of steering a sailboat out on the open waters of Coeur d'Alene. Like it's literally on top of the deck and there's a sail; maybe two sails tops. I have no idea how it would work, but I know I want it.
My name is Christina, and I started working for CDA Coffee Company in the summer of 2021. The best part of the job is getting to meet new people in the community and the time spent interacting with our wonderful customers. Outside of work I enjoy swing dancing, reading, and playing outdoor sports. My favorite drink is our “Fireside” A delicious medley of agave, vanilla, and cinnamon, served latte style.
Hi, my name is Aiya! I first began working as a barista a couple of years ago back in my hometown in Oregon. I started at CDA Coffee Co. in October of 2022 and am absolutely thrilled to get back into coffee! I have enjoyed getting to know my wonderful coworkers and more of the community here. One of my favorite things is to see a smile put on someone’s face, and I love that doing so is a huge part of CCC! Outside of being a barista, I am also a swim coach, and you can pretty much always find me in the water somewhere!
Hi, my name is Kaytie! I started working for CDA Coffee Company in March of 2022. I love it so much!

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my husband and kids, bake cookies, go thrifting, and binge watch my favorite shows.
Hi my name is Michelle! I started working here in the fall of 2022. I love serving yummy drinks and interacting with the community here.

Hello, I'm Adam. I have been working here for about 4 years now. I help the girls with dishes, stamping cups, and making drip coffee. I also love to make my dads decaf americano when he comes to see me at work! My favorite drink is a zip fizz and hot cocoas topped with whip cream! My favorite season is winter and summer.

Hey! My name is MacKenzie and I started at CDA Coffee Company in September of 2022. I recently moved from Bend, OR to try something new and I am loving it here! I have been a bairsta for almost a year now with some previous experience at Starbucks.
