Kaldi’s Coffee is not opening a shop in the River Market

Kaldi’s is working on office space in the River Market.

A keen-eyed reader reached out to The Recommended Daily (you can do so here) to ask if Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co. was coming to the River Market.

And while the clues suggested that Kaldi’s could be planning another location — there’s a La Marzorcco espresso machine inside and Kaldi’s name up on a sign out front — it’s not the case. The space at 110 E. 5th St. is being turned into a training center and office space for the St. Louis-based roaster.

Kaldi’s does have a presence in Kansas City. The roaster bought six area Lattelands in 2012. They’ve also collaborated with two St. Louis companies to create bottles that have made it into the metro: Schlafly’s Coffee Stout and Fitz’s Coffee Cola.
