KY/TN Latte Art Throwdown & Caffeination Celebration | 6p Thurs Oct 23


Free sips and smells from a variety of roasters. World-class lattes by baristas from a 200-mile radius. Competition, camaraderie, conversation and more, w/ all proceeds benefitting the Center for Courageous Kids. Scroll down a little for all the details.

Coffees from the best roasters in Kentucky & Tennessee. Lattes from some of the best baristas in a 200-mile radius. Door prizes, refreshments and more — admission is free, and proceeds benefit the Center for Courageous Kids!

Baristas from Louisville, Nashville, Bowling Green and beyond will compete in a Latte Art Throwdown — and their beautiful lattes will be auctioned off throughout the evening. Major prizes await the winners! Meanwhile, a bevy of roasters will be handbrewing their very best beans, no purchase necessary! A raffle will offer prizes from tons of local businesses as well as most of the cafes and roasteries represented, and we'll even have craft beer on draft to liven things up! 

The evening will start with coffee samplings from a variety of roasters, including Sunergos Coffee & Quills Coffee of Louisville, as well as Crema Coffee and Bongo Java of Nashville. Grab a coffee and find a chatting partner — and when your cup's empty, feel free to grab another from a different roaster. And to offset the caffeine, we'll also have a couple fine craft beers on draft, available for a reasonably-priced donation. Snack-size goodies will also be on hand, and don't forget to buy a few raffle tickets — prizes include gift cards to BG eateries, shops, salons and more, as well as coffee-centric prizes from the cafés and companies involved in the event.

The fun continues with the third-annual KY/TN Latte Art Throwdown, a bracket-style competition that lets baristas from both ends of I-65 test their mettle in pouring fancy-looking lattes. Pours will be judged on composition, difficulty, creativity and general aesthetic beauty, and the top three places will win sought-after coffee gadgets and gear, along with major interstate bragging rights. Some of the lattes will be auctioned off after pouring — you could end up drinking the pours of a champ!

Last year's event was a major success, and we're hoping for even greater involvement this year. So please RSVP, share and attend — your taste buds will thank you, and hundreds of kids will be blessed through the work of CCK!

Sponsored by La Colombe Torrefaction, Prima Coffee Equipment, Baratza Grinders, Sunergos Coffee, Mistobox , Saint Anthony Industries and more.

Eat, Drink and Be Merry.

Great coffee is one of the world's most affordable luxuries, and a great cup of coffee demands a great place to enjoy it. Since 2001, Spencer's has been southcentral Kentucky's destination for world-class coffee and espresso drinks. But coffee is only the beginning. 

We specialize in all things tasty, including handmade breakfast and lunch fare, from-scratch pastries, craft beer and more. We offer free wi-fi, outdoor seating and a view of Fountain Square, and also carry whole-bean coffees from around the world (as well as everything you'd possibly need to brew them.) 

Craft Beer w/ Class.

A rotating selection of fine beers in bottles and on draft. 

Fresh. Baked. Yum.

Made from scratch, made with love. Selections vary.

Space to Relax.

Seating for up to 80, and plenty more in our outdoor courtyard.

All Things Coffee.


It's the world's most enjoyed beverage, and one of life's most affordable luxuries. Stop, smell, sip and savor.

Coffee starts with a seed. The soil and the sun and a hundred other factors develop the character of the coffee cherries that will one day be picked and processed by the farmer. That farmer's work is both difficult and critical, and we source coffees that farmer, barista and consumer can be proud of — paying an above-market price for each bean, and taking great care to serve it well. 

We carry high-quality, fresh-crop coffees from around the world, and we aim to make each customer's coffee experience as simple and enjoyable as possible.

All of our coffees are available for purchase in 12 oz. bags (just days after they're roasted), alongside the best equipment for making consistently tasty brews. We're happy to help you choose the right coffees for your tastes, and to help you get the most out of your own brewing. 

Don't want to brew it? That's cool — we're open seven days a week, serving coffee and espresso drinks to sit and sip or to grab on the go. Our in-house selection changes weekly, and we cycle through seasonal espresso drinks alongside the time-tested standards.

Coffee is our first passion, but great food follows close behind. For more than a decade, Spencer's has been downtown Bowling Green's favorite place for a quick, delicious lunch. We start with simple recipes, made with great ingredients. 

Our popular chicken salad and rotating soups are all made from scratch, as are our breakfast pastries and dessert fare. We accept call-ahead ordering for both breakfast and lunch, and it's all available for dining in or carryout.

Craft Beer


Winding down should taste great, and it shouldn't require televisions or bad cover bands. That's why we serve great craft beers within the comfort of your favorite café.

Craft Beer


Winding down should taste great, and it shouldn't require televisions or bad cover bands. That's why we serve great craft beers within the comfort of your favorite café.

As one of the oldest drinks on the planet, beer has long been a staple of rest and relaxation. The bland offerings of major American brewers cheapened the name of this once great drink during the last century; fortunately, the "craft brewing revolution" has returned flavor and style to this age-old art, and we're proud to serve some of the finest beers from breweries around the country.

At Spencer's, we don't sell pitchers and we don't have the big game on 14 flat screens. We don't have a pricy cover charge or a crummy cover band. What we do have is a limited selection of delicious beers from some of America's best breweries, along with a great space in which to enjoy them. Occasional beergarden events held during warm weather in our outdoor courtyard.

Our Vision

Our Vision


Quality

There's no end of things to spend your money on, and there never seems to be enough. That's why we're committed to making affordable indulgences with an emphasis on quality. You deserve it, so we demand it.

Comfort

The world wants you to rush through life — to hurry up and get it over with. But we suggest another way, and we strive to provide a place where you can slow down and savor life — even if only for a moment.

Community

We're all in this together, and our passion for great food & drink would be fruitless without a community with which to share it. Our customers become like family — and there's plenty of room at the table for more.
