    Buyer wants to roast Hawaiian coffee beans in building where Hamm's dried grain
    By Don Jacobson Special to the Star Tribune

    The dilapidated “Building No. 3” in the former Hamm’s Brewery complex in St. Paul doesn’t prompt thoughts of warm south seas breezes and swaying palm trees. But the entrepreneur trying to buy the building hopes to soon be roasting millions of pounds of Hawaiian coffee in it.
    Jean-Claude Drui, owner of a thriving coffee-roasting business in Kapolei, Hawaii, offered to purchase the long-abandoned, three-story building, St. Paul city officials disclosed last week. Hamm’s used it to dry grain.

    The urge to bring new life to old buildings would be put to a stern test with Building No. 3 at the Hamm’s complex. It has a gaping, 6-foot hole in its roof from its grain-drying days and has been a favorite target for pigeons, vandals and “explorers” in the 20 years since its abandonment.

    But it also has some big advantages, said Rick Howden of the city’s planning and economic development department and project manager for the site. Those include a location overlooking Swede Hollow Park and proximity to other thriving business at the complex, such as Flat Earth Brewing and the 11 Wells Spirits Company.
