Welcome to Joe's Flat Iron Café! Joe's Flat Iron Café is your new coffee shop located in the historic district of Skowhegan, Maine. The opening on July 31, 2023 marks a pivotal moment for Joe Almand. A year earlier, firefighter Almand fell about 25 feet while attempting to rescue a drone that had gotten stuck in a tree, and then tumbled another 15 feet down an embankment. He broke four ribs, both of his wrists, a bone in his face and punctured a lung, which led to multiple surgeries and hospital stays. It ended his career as a firefighter. (Source: BDN)

Joe Almand and his wife renovated the first-floor space at 65 Water Street and turned it into a beautiful coffee shop. The "Flat iron" name is inspired by the historic Skowhegan district. Behind the coffee shop will be Main Street Skowhegan’s gear library, which lends bikes, kayaks and other outdoor equipment for free.

Location: 65 Water Street, Skowhegan, Maine 04976
