PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD)– The founder of thirty-thirty Coffee will be opening his new coffee shop at the same location on Monday, Oct. 23.

Ty Paluska left thirty-thirty in 2016 to go out west and refine his skills as a professional bean maestro.

Paluska spent four years in Post Falls, Idaho as a wholesale coffee roaster, running Deep Creek Coffee Company in Springdale, Utah, and earning his level 3 professional barista certification through the Specialty Coffee Association of America.

Now, he and his wife Kami have returned to Peoria to open up shop in the same location as thirty-thirty, in the Kickapoo Building.

Ty said he recently received a call from the building owners, who asked if he’d be interested in using the building space. He said he’s glad to be back in Peoria.

“We’re real excited to bring this building back to life and keep it from becoming something else,” he continued, “it’s definitely meant to be a coffee shop, and Intuition, the name, comes from just my own experience in my life and doing what I’m called to do and hopefully inspiring others to do the same thing.”

He added that what will set Intuition apart is their kindness and hospitality, and “fantastic food and drinks” to seal the deal.

The new shop will offer coffee, tea, cold-pressed organic juice, and various healthy food options.

Their hours will be Mon-Fri, 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sat-Sun, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
