About Us


Our journey started with a vision, a little bit of grit — and a whole lot of coffee.

Since opening our first coffee shop near the University of Virginia in 2008, we’ve grown to six locations in Central Virginia, including six in the Charlottesville area and one in Richmond. We have navigated plenty of twists and turns along the way, but are driven ahead knowing that our coffee provides fuel for others blazing their own paths.

As a roaster we search the world over to establish relationships with great farmers cultivating great coffees, and we roast them with craft and care — believing that only the best cup is good enough for the journey ahead.
