Drinking Coffee in Kansas City: Filling Station
The Filling Station has become known for its high-quality coffee, fresh juices, and health-conscious meals at three area locations. Run in partnership with Messenger Coffee, the Filling Station serves some of the highest quality coffee in Kansas City.
As the Filling Station has expanded their Kansas City coffee reign, they haven't allowed a single aspect of their business to remain unimproved. They offer a curated, high-quality menu of coffees, teas, cold-pressed juices (Midtown and Overland Park locations), and breakfast and lunch food.
Each of their spaces has an environment that fosters creativity. Although their Westport location doesn't boast the size that the Midtown and Overland Park locations possess, it does have a drive-thru for easy access on your way downtown.
The Filling Station's Midtown location is the original location that began it all - the location that "has been bubbling up under the surface” for years. Ozzie’s quick to describe the Filling Station as more than a coffee shop, highlighting their made-to-order breakfast and lunch items, perfect for those with busy lifestyles looking for something quick, delicious and healthy. A self-proclaimed "health nut,” Ozzie can't recall an experience that left him feeling dissatisfied with the Station's health-oriented menu (pro tip: look out for that Beastie Beet cold-pressed juice and be sure to set it off with a little added lemon).
Ozzie Louis Mendoza is a local coffee expert who was formerly with PT’s Coffee Roasting Co, the nationally acclaimed Topeka-based roaster. PT’s has a Kansas City shop located on Southwest Boulevard in the Crossroads Arts District.
