Our Story

   Fill Your Cup ~ Refill Your Soul   

     Head to Springfield’s Historic Commercial Street and visit our restaurants Cafe Cusco or Van Gogh's Eeterie or store Chabom Teas + Spices. Co-owned by Joe and his mother, Claire. 

     Thanks to his love of cooking, Joe has always been interested in working with a variety of spices. He is also a lover of hot tea, which made him passionate about that as well. And he wanted to share his vast knowledge of the two with all of southwest Missouri. His goal is to bring a bit of an experience to 417-landers by selling spices and teas from all over the world.

     Chabom is "Good Tea" in Portuguese. Starting as a small shop in Springfield, Missouri in June of 2015, we have quickly expanded providing our community the finest loose leaf teas, herbs, and spices. We have partnered with some of the oldest tea importers into the US who work directly with farmers in India, China, Japan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Kenya.

     All the teas and spices sold at Chabom are displayed individually in their own little picturesque jars and containers, and they go far beyond the norm. Of course you’ll find all kinds of green tea, black tea and herbal tea imaginable, but you’ll also find items you have likely never even heard of. 

     We also include fun things like gourmet sugars and finishing salts, as well as a variety of curries and unknown spices from around the globe. And the best part is, there is no minimum purchase.

 

     When you come in we hope to give you a peaceful environment. We invite you to come in, relax and take a break from your busy life.
