We named it "Buck Creek Coffee" after Psalm 42:1: "As the Buck thirsts for the clear water of the running creek, so my soul desires you, my God." and also because our coffee house sits 3 blocks from where the Cahaba Valley Creek flows into the Buck Creek and where the Buck Creek enters Pelham from Alabaster and turns toward Helena and the dam at Old Town.
It is the point of confluence of the three communities that Buck Creek Coffee House serves, a meeting place of the life blood of local culture. Even in this modern age, communities are shaped by creeks and rivers, roads are defined by them, and the flow of the traffic of commerce is directed by their subtle influence. Nor did it escape us that our coffee house would be a place for people to meet and conduct business in hopes of developing "income streams" and "cash flows" and we love a good pun.
