COLUMBIA, MO. underneath late-night favorite gumby’s pizza, Confetti Craft Co.

began slinging drinks alongside craft projects last month in Columbia, Missouri. Choose from 25 projects, like a six-pack beer caddy or a throw pillow, as well as from a drink menu featuring bottled beer, wine and signature cocktails. owner Michelle nickerson says the unconventional spot has a nice mix of light, fresh and beautiful cocktails, plus several that focus on whiskey and bourbon. try the tabernacle Crush, a gin drink with Lillet blanc, fresh peaches, basil and a touch of lemon, or the Colorado Cooler with cherry-infused whiskey. nickerson is excited to bring this hands-on craft project and craft-drink spot to Columbia and to provide an adult-friendly evening option that’s different from the rest of the local night scene. “our goal is to give the customers something great to drink to help get their creative juices flowing,” nickerson says. 573.424.3624, 32

RICHMOND HEIGHTS, MO. a new st. Louis-area roaster is proudly riding the third wave of coffee. Coma Coffee Roasters debuted in richmond heights, Missouri, in July, featuring single-origin beans and a variety of pastries. Coma is an amalgamation of the first two letters of co-owners Corbin and Macy holtzman’s names. to create their signature cups of caffeine, the holtzmans enlisted the talents of roastmaster Chad denney. Coma uses beans from el salvador, ethiopia and Colombia, which rotate every few weeks based on growing seasons, and are available in a few different brew methods: cold brew, espresso, drip and pour over. signature drinks include the Coma, featuring vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso. Lyfe combines pomegranate juice with a shot of espresso and is served over ice. Look for subtle flavors in each carefully crafted cup, from sweeter, floral sips to full-bodied notes of chocolate and caramel.
