MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The locally owned Denim Coffee Company recently announced the grand opening date for its fifth coffee shop location.

The locally-owned Denim Coffee Company is owned and operated by Matt Ramsey. According to Ramsey, he opened his first Denim Coffee shop in Carlisle at 1 South Hanover Street, seven years ago, back in 2016.

In early May 2023, Denim Coffee Company confirmed that they would be opening a new coffee shop in Downtown Mechanicsburg, at the former location of Capital Joe coffee shop.

abc27 news reported back in December 2022, when the popular Capital Joe first announced their January 31 closure.

“When Capital Joe shut down we thought that this was a bad thing for downtown Mechanicsburg,” Ramsey explained. “So, we decided that we really needed another [coffee shop].”

The former Capital Joe building is comprised of two floors, and according to Ramsey, Denim Coffee Company will only be occupying the first floor of the establishment. The second floor of the building is being utilized by a local artist.

According to Ramsey, the new location will be capable of seating 10 to 12 customers in the back section of the establishment, and another 24 in the main seating area. The new location will be featuring Denim Coffee’s full specialty coffee and expresso menu, breakfast sandwiches, baked goods, teas, smoothies, and more!

Upon the grand opening of the new location, Ramsey anticipates creating 5 to 10 jobs in the process. If you are interested in applying for a job with Denim Coffee you are encouraged to reach out to

  • Mondays – Fridays // 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Saturdays – Sundays // 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Every community needs an anchor 3rd space location outside of home and work to gather, hangout and build relationships and we are thrilled to bring our specialty coffee experience and be that location for the Mechanicsburg community,” Ramsay said in a release.

The new Denim Coffee in Mechanicsburg will have its grand opening on Saturday, June 10 at 8 a.m. According to Ramsay, he hopes to one day open a total of 10 Denim Coffee locations.
