Webster’s newest business, Hamilton’s Coffee, opened in September providing espresso drinks, high quality coffee, Italian Sodas and a variety of donuts, subs, and other baked items. DJ Hamilton, owner, is a Sumter County resident with deep family roots in the southern region of the county. A career change came after DJ was successfully treated for breast cancer, and decided to change her career from Information Technology to Barista……..her dream to do something she loved and reconnect with her community.
DJ’s inspiration for a high quality coffee shop came after a visit to the Portland, Oregon area several years ago. As she traveled the state of Oregon sight-seeing she noticed the eclectic coffee kiosk located in almost every community she visited. These tiny coffee kiosks had a decorative local flair with a real local feel to them. The shops offered a full range of espresso drinks and coffees, a feature that DJ has tried to re-create with her current location.
The dream began by finding the current location located just a few miles from her home, which had been vacated for a number of years. Months of “elbow grease” turned this 1965 building into a welcoming community Coffee Shop. To insure that quality service and products were provided, DJ attended the “Seattle Barista Academy” in Seattle, Washington in order to become a trained Barista.
Offerings include traditional espresso drinks such as Lattes, Frappes, and Cappuccinos. For those looking for something a little different we have smoothies, Italian Sodas, iced tea, hot tea, cold brew, and a host of special drinks such as the American Macchiato, White Chocolate/Chocolate Chip Frappe, and Orange Cream Soda.
