Story: Coffee Town starts when a website manager Will (Howerton) spends his days in a coffee shop.

The three learn that the coffee store might turn into a bistro and decide to think of a plan to stop it.

Verdict on Coffee Town
Coffee Town is a comedy that looks to bring a group of slackers together to try and rescue their local coffee shop. It sees them put together a wild plan in hopes of making it remain their favourite place.
This is a comedy that doesn’t seem to click in the best way. The characters are mostly unlikable as they are filled with inappropriate figures. Most of the laughs miss and we are left with the life lesson not getting enough focus. However, the three leads do work well together, showing a bond through the situations.
Final Thoughts – Coffee Town is a comedy that lacks the laughs it tries for.
