The evening rush had hit Coffeehouse Five, bringing a line of people to wait for their smoothies and coffee.
In tables and overstuffed chairs throughout the small space, they sipped on cappuccinos and lattes. Soft brown tones and low light create a welcoming atmosphere. Christmas music redone by contemporary artists played.
The scene could have come out of any Starbucks. But for every cup of coffee or chai tea they took, the patrons were helping the mission work of a Johnson County church.
