Coffee is no longer a commodity
It defines a community. It tells their story. Local. Global.
So at The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company, we’ve made it our business to help tell that story. The whole story. And that, in turn, is how we tell ours. Like many great American brands, we began in a garage with not much more than a leap of faith — and our Italian father. His passion for the art and science that transformed those little green beans into the nuanced roasts we still offer is what inspires everything we do, every day, at our ever innovating roasting facility. But our story doesn’t end there. After all, if you’re traveling the globe to source only the finest and most responsibly grown coffee, it’s no longer just your story. It’s that farmer’s story. And his family’s story. It’s a story about our relationship and responsibility to their passion for caffeinated excellence. It’s also a story about how those people on the other side of the planet are helping to change the story in Detroit.
Here, with each grind and every pour, in the conversations we have and the discussions we lead, we’re refining the grit of a great city into the ideas that are redefining what it means to be an even greater community. So whether you’re sipping from your favorite mug at home or savoring that last drop at one of our bars, know you’re part of our story. Because at The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company, it’s not just about what you’re drinking: It’s about the journey to your cup… And where we’ll go from there.
