Verita gives you a reason to head west

From F5:

As you know, the west side of Wichita is a lawless wasteland where life is cheap and rough justice is dealt by bands of malfunctioning robot cowboy sheriffs who long ago escaped from Wild West World. The minivans of the funmoms in their Lululemon pants roam unchecked and your attempts to reach the IMAX at the Warren on 21st are entirely at your own risk. Until now, IMAX movies and pizzatacos were the only reason to venture west of West; now there is another.
Jon and Ivy Jones opened Verita Coffee on March 2 at 9414 W. Central (between Tyler and Maize) in a gorgeously transformed space centered around a beautiful Slayer espresso machine. This is great news for those of you who live on the west side, but for the rest of you wondering why you ought to go out of your way when there's coffee five minutes from your house, here's what is different about Verita.
First, let me talk about the space. Verita's back wall is covered in verdigris pennies. Forty thousand of them. And they did it by hand, one by one. To see it in person is awesome in a very literal sense. Their hand-finished oak thrust bar wraps around their coffee-making island on three sides, offering comfortable seating for around a dozen while comfortable couches, wingback chairs and other seating to relax and/or work under lines of Edison bulbs.
