OUR CHEFS

Aurora Coffey

Aurora Coffey

Den Mother & Fearless Leader

Aurora has always been in love with food and cooking. The daughter of a chef, she was predestined to be in a kitchen long before she realized her passion could be her livelihood. Another Augie's Alumni, she spent her early career working the counter at Augies Cafe before lending herself to other projects of his. She spent her time in Chicago working for big names such as Rick Bayless and getting her Culinary Arts degree from Robert Morris. She returned to Springfield to spend time with her family and got her Restaurant Management degree all while working alongside Jordan. The two of them got married in 2010 and opened American Harvest in 2011. They have worked together as parents to many and are lucky to be mom and dad to Walter and Desmond.

Luminary is their 3rd love child and after years of conceptualizing they're excited to bring their years of experience to a new space built on a long love of the restaurant industry.

You can find Aurora on the line, eating a cold burger bun, exercising her mom title, reheating her cup of coffee for the 30th time, tasting wine she can't pronounce, giving inspirational speeches at the weekly staff meeting, or writing notes to herself on the back of old kitchen tickets.
