Fans of Amici Espresso may be mourning the coffeehouse's Dec. 13 closure, but they can still grab a hot cup of coffee at the business's Midland Building location. Amici's former baristas will be making favorites with Amici's old equipment at the newly coined Hippee Coffee, according to the Des Moines Register, a venture building owner Jeff Young calls a temporary solution designed to retain Amici's loyal fan base of startup entrepreneurs and corporate pros with hopes that a chain will move in. So far, Caribou Coffee Co. and Scooter's Coffee and Yogurt are among the chains that have expressed interest in the space, Young told the Register.
