Love Local, Think Global!
We are all about supporting local! We try to stock our shelves with as much local products as we can. If you're a local vendor, we would love to hear from you! We are also proud to offer coffee beans from all over the world, many of which are also organic and/or fair trade coffee. We value our local community and environment, but we also love the planet! That's also why we try to use as much compostable or recyclable paper and plastic supplies as we can, and our building is designed with features that help us reduce our carbon footprint. We strongly believe that supporting our local surroundings helps globally.
