Faces of Arkansas: The Face of Community Gatherings, Nexus Coffee & Creative


Nestled on the corner of South Cumberland Street and President Clinton Avenue is a coffee shop brewing more than just cappuccinos and chai. Nexus Coffee & Creative started out with a dream on a napkin between founder Amy Counce and her father, Matt Moorehead. 


“The ‘why’ and heartbeat behind the company is community; taking care of each customer by showing them value and making sure they feel seen,” says founder Amy Counce. “The ‘how’ is through coffee, roasting, baking and events.”


Three years into the business, Nexus Coffee & Creative has expanded to include a local mercantile supporting other locally crafted businesses and makers. Community is an integral part of Nexus, and community begins inside the doors of the coffee shop.


“As a teammate, friend and leader, I am most proud of our team members. I am proud of who they are and how they have grown into the leaders they are today. I am proud of the strengths and gifts they bring to the table. I am proud of their voices and the story they each tell as they make their dreams come alive at Nexus,” Counce says. “We believe in the ‘inside out’ model. We strive to empower and take care of our family, so they can take care of our community and customers.”
