Local artisan coffee, gourmet tea and baked goods

Our passion + our People

The Spot is proud to be serving CxT Roasting Company coffee, a local company who roasts the highest quality of small batch, single origin coffees with meticulous attention and well-earned pride.

Our pastry case highlights the freshest, most amazing flavors from local bakers who continue to bring smiles to customer faces and sell out every day. (Arrive early and follow us on social to see what deliciousness we’re serving up today!)

The Spot Coffee Co. is a small business located in Peoria, Illinois.

You can find us at our brick and mortar café (established in February 2018 just north of Route 6 on North Knoxville) or you can track down our trailer for a unique mobile coffee experience.

The Spot Coffee actually began in October 2016 inside a tiny blue vintage camper. Owner Sara Skolaski and her husband, Ryan, poured lots of labor and love into this mobile café, and they are passionate about (and grateful for) the business they've created.

Our passion

I believe we are remarkable because of the love we show for our customers and for one another. I have always tried to instill in our team the gratitude and appreciation for not only one another, but also our customers and our community. -Sara

The Spot features the finest local single origin coffee and made-from-scratch pastries & bagels.

We deliver a remarkable product. What we love about these relationships is that we get the opportunity to help them grow their small business at the same time that they’re helping us to grow our business. These relationships are truly a gift!

We use beans that are roasted locally by CxT, and we make all of our syrups in house with natural ingredients. It is an honor to partner with local businesses who are also passionate about the products that they put into both our hands and those of our customers.
