The Scooter’s Guy

There’s a good chance that you don’t think you know Bill Kipper. He’s a fairly low-key guy and doesn’t really spend any time seeking out the limelight, so it’s a fair assumption. On the other hand, there’s an excellent chance that he’s affected you in one way or another – at least, he’s affected you if you’ve ever had a coffee from any Scooter’s anywhere.

Bill’s “the guy.” More specifically, he’s the one and only roaster for Scooter’s. Every coffee bean that comes through Scooter’s does so because Bill has researched it, ordered it, blended it and roasted it. “I’m the guy,” Bill admits. “I’m the green coffee buyer.

Collaborators Phil Anania and Anne Cavanaugh along with charcuterie chef, Bryce Coulton gallantly bring forth straightforward artisan fare to the Omaha food scene. 

Entering into the quaint space, you feel a sense of anticipation. The space is crowded, not even an empty seat at the bar. There are people waiting. Could it be as good as all this?  Isn’t this...
