who we are

The Coffee Grounds is a local, family-owned business. Founded in 1991, we were one of the first coffee shops in Wisconsin. What began as a small, 800 square foot coffee shop in London Square Mall, has now evolved into a 10,000 square foot retail store while still maintaining a pleasant, enjoyable place to shop and have coffee or lunch.

Our mission has always been to provide the finest, freshest coffee available and the highest quality and best selection of products from across the United States, Europe, and around the world.

We offer locally raised pork, lamb, and Wagyu beef. Join us in supporting these family farms.

As a Fair Trade Certified™ coffee roaster, The Coffee Grounds is proud to offer Fair Trade Certified coffee and other products to our customers. Fair Trade guarantees farmers around the world are paid a fair price, and there is direct trade between producers and United States importers. Fair Trade enables these farmers to continue giving their crops the care that produce a high quality product, even during times of market volatility. They are also able to sustain their farming practices, have their children in schools, and live in a healthy environment. For you, this means great taste and a responsible purchase. We support Fair Trade— an investment in quality ensuring the finest coffee, tea, and
chocolate available.

Our name, The Coffee Grounds, is a bit of a misnomer. Along with coffee, tea, and accessories, we have an array of gifts, kitchenware and gadgets, specialty foods, cheeses and chocolates, cigars, micro-brewed beers, fine wine, and spirits.
