Jimmy Buckets is now Jimmy Barista.
Jimmy Butler’s Coffee Shop
The coffee situation for NBA players on the campus near Disney World hasn’t been ideal. The commodity is a precious resource, and when it is found, it’s not exactly anything to write home about.
Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler took matters into his own hands by purchasing his own French press. Jimmy is a man of the people, so he figured he should share.
Alas, Big Face Coffee was born.
The menu offers a wide variety of coffee and espresso drinks. Customers have their pick of a cup of coffee, lattes, pour over, cappuccinos, americanos, espresso shots, red eyes, mochas, macchiatos, and cafe au laits.
As the only coffee business inside the NBA Bubble, Butler is able to set his own prices. For a measly $20, patrons can get any drink in small, medium, or large. Cash only. No I.O.U.S allowed. As a bonus, you get a sit-down conversation with dear old Jim. That, my friends, is priceless.
Heat beat writer Ira Winderman documented the choices from a tweet by Butler’s Heat teammate Meyers Leonard.
In an interview with ESPN‘s Rachel Nichols prior to the start of the NBA playoffs, Jimmy touched on the rivalry between the Heat and the Indiana Pacers, his altercation with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul, and life in the Orlando bubble.
“I don’t need friends here in the bubble,” he says when asked about reconciliation with Paul. This was further exemplified by Butler declining to bring family members to the bubble once they were allowed at the beginning of the second round.
“This is a business trip for me. I’m not messing around.”
With a 4-1 series win over reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks, the Heat await the winner of the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors series in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Butler’s hotel room side hustle takes up a majority of his time outside of basketball. He couldn’t care less about the start of the NFL season or stats. His focus is on winning and sharpening his coffee skills.
