In life, there are many things that pair well together. Peanut butter and jelly. Bacon and eggs. Coffee and laundry… Wait, what? Yes! Here at The Clean Brew, they combine exactly that. (No, they do not pour coffee on your clothes.) Here, you can get your favorite clothes properly washed while sippin’ on a craft latte. Take a minute and check out this one-of-a-kind coffee shop!

“The Clean Brew is clean laundry and good coffee.”

Shyanne Cyrus, manager of The Clean Brew, explains their mission to the people of Van. With the creativity of making their own syrups for coffees to the hard work of washing and folding hundreds of loads of laundry with their drop-off service, The Clean Brew is impacting their community in an energized way.


Stepping up to the order window, you are hit with the floral aroma of freshly ground coffee beans. The sounds of expresso machines piping off in the background. The Clean Brew is ready for your coffee order. Their barista team can make just about any type of coffee for you. Drip, cortados, cappuccinos, lattes, americanos, you name it! We recommend trying their “1885!” This Texas-inspired coffee is a perfect combination of expresso, vanilla syrup, and good ol’ Dr. Pepper. It’s a great mix of sweet and bold. They also serve in-house paninis to go with your specialty coffees. Go online to see their full menu!


The goal of a laundromat is to provide clean clothes. This is a simple matter, one that The Clean Brew most certainly provides. Many washers and dryers line the walls where you can easily maneuver to drop in a load of clothes. It’s as easy as putting in a few quarters and watching your laundry go from dirty to clean. If you’re short on time, you can drop off whatever you need cleaned, from shirts to comforters, with their wash and fold services. Check out their website for details.

We hope y’all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We’re back on the grind today 🙌🏻

“After the tornado, somebody needed to do something with that little laundromat... turned out to be us.”

Mark Thompson, owner of The Clean Brew, shares the devastating results of the 2015 tornado that wreaked havoc on Van. One of the damaged buildings happened to be this specific laundromat, where The Clean Brew now stands. With hard work and hope to create something unique, Mark, his wife, Lori, and daughter, Shyanne, formed this coffee shop and laundromat combo into what it is today. From once an old, abandoned building to gathering spot for locals and visitors, The Clean Brew has become a staple in their town.

“I usually wear my baby on my back when I’m here... they always love seeing her. They bring us diapers and things like that.”

Visiting The Clean Brew really is like being home. Fresh laundry. Great coffee. Friendly faces. Why not try something new this weekend? Bag up some dirty clothes, invite a few friends, and come enjoy a hot, or cold, coffee.
