Muddy's Coffeehouse will have new ownership

Muddy's will have new owners this summer.
  • Muddy's will have new owners this summer.

Muddy's Coffeehouse (318 E. 51st St.) is getting a new owner, but if you're a regular, odds are that you'll recognize the new ownership group.

Joyce Smith of The Kansas City Star reports that Muddy's owner, Oliver Burnette, will be selling his coffee shop after 16 years to two longtime employees. The change in ownership is expected to take place sometime in June.

The coffee shop has a dedicated core of regulars, consisting of students from the nearby University of Missouri-Kansas City campus and Brookside residents who are either escaping work or camping out with their laptops. 

"I want to try something new, whatever that may be," Burnette told The Kansas City Star.

It sounds like there won't be dramatic changes at Muddy's, although the loss of Burnette as a barista and greeter will take some getting used to for those who frequent the coffeehouse. He's a fixture behind the counter, as consistent as the foamy cappuccino he serves. Perhaps he'll stop in for a cup of coffee from time to time.
