[ where hot coffee & warm conversation flow ]


our story

At The Coffee Shop, we welcome all to enter our doors and enjoy free Wi-Fi, a comfortable workspace, good entertainment, great food, and hot coffee. Our mission is to be a place where the salvation and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ can be shared lovingly and warmly with coffee and conversation. Above all and through all, The Coffee Shop will first and foremost be a place where someone can share about Him when the Spirit prompts. It will be a place where people can come and immediately feel at home.


our founders

Guy and Tammy married in 1986 and have two children, Garrett (29) and Tabitha (26). After spending almost five years as missionaries in West Africa and two years as house parents with the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home, the Causey’s returned home to Humboldt, TN .

Guy, a retired educator of 26 years, and Tammy, a big dreamer, bought the building, now known as The Coffee Shop, on December 21, 2017. When Guy and Tammy decided to open The Coffee Shop, it was a decision only directed by God. For many years after serving as missionaries, there was prompting on Tammy’s heart to do more on a very intentional level to be His hands and feet “OUT LOUD”! She wanted to be content, but just couldn’t find rest in her spirit.

After a mission’s conference weekend at their church, Tammy knew this prompting wasn’t going away. While at the conference, she decided to attend a breakout session on “Transformational Business” by a missionary serving with the IMB. During this session, the missionary shared about his experience working in a coffee shop to share His story on a daily basis as opportunities presented themselves. By bedtime that night, Tammy felt, heard, and saw God asking her to go all in and open The Coffee Shop on Main St. in Humboldt. The next morning, she sat down at the kitchen table with a pen and paper and began to pray and take notes. Thus, The Coffee Shop was born.

From this moment, the Lord began to work as only He can. Tammy presented her vision and her heart to Guy, and he jumped on board. The Causey’s then began praying for a location, and meetings were set in place to view some buildings. The wheels were in motion and they weren’t stopping! Now the Causey’s are taking a leap together to do something “OUT LOUD”!
