Indaba’s downtown shop features Modbar system

Indaba Coffee Bar and Roastery has opened a second location, becoming the second boutique coffee roaster in Eastern Washington to install a Modbar brewing system.

The first was Roast House earlier this spring. But, unlike Indaba, the wholesaler doesn’t sell coffee by the cup; it uses its Modbar for complimentary coffee cuppings and training.

The downtown Indaba is first in Eastern Washington to use the ultra-modern brewing system in a retail coffee-shop capacity. Current hours at the new coffee shop at 210 N. Howard St. are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Owner Bobby Enslow started Indaba in Spokane’s West Central neighborhood in 2009. Last year, the business began roasting its own beans.

While Indaba is a for-profit business, it partners with community organizations to fund meals for those in need and offer internships and job training for young people.
