Ed and Dan Dunn wanted to set an entirely new standard for coffee: fanatic about freshness, unyielding on quality and rooted in community.
Inspired by Eugene, Oregon's legendary coffee houses, they would offer only the finest quality beans and craft-roast them on site. Ed and Dan also understood coffee's power to foster connection among their customers. When people entered their shop, they would be greeted by its aroma and enveloped by a spirit of community.
That was 1987. The passion Ed and Dan brought to the business endures today, nearly 25 years later as we continue to set the standard for quality and freshness in a way that no other coffee house chain has been able to match.
