Hi!  We're Terry Cox and Karen Scales, owners of Heritage Trail Cafe and Coffee Roaster.  We have been roasting small batch coffee since 2011.  We started by selling our coffee at the Owen Valley Farmers Market and the Owen Valley Winery.  We live just outside Ellettsville on a small farm with our crazy cat and 2 guineas.   Terry loves cooking, especially southwestern dishes, which gives him an opportunity to experiment with different spices and peppers. Karen spent 35 years working for an architect, as well as owning and operating Scales Farm Cabins.






Hi, I'm Ranisa Nelson. I am originally from Mesa, AZ. I moved to Springfield, MO in 2010 where I managed a local pizza shop and worked as a barista. I also met my future husband there who is an Ellettsville native.   We returned to Ellettsville in 2016.   My husband and I are Youth Pastors at First Assembly of God here in Ellettsville. We dedicate a large portion of our time to mentoring youth in the community. In my free time I enjoy running, reading, canoeing, traveling and of course drinking and making coffee!

For as long as I can remember I've had a passion for coffee and espresso, and now I am excited to carry this passion over into my work at Heritage Trail Cafe and Coffee Roasters.
