Here’s What’s Brewing for Ann Arbor Coffee Lovers

Ann Arbor Loves Coffee!With more than 50 individual coffee shops available to residents, it's a fact that Ann Arbor definitely loves coffee. David Myers, owner of Mighty Good Coffee Roasting Company, is making the most of that affection. As artisan roaster Mighty Good Coffee moves into its fifth year in business, they will physically move from their tiny (less than 200 square feet) storefront at 118 S. Main Street, to a 2,200 square foot combination café and roasting operation at 217 N. Main Street. The move will allow seating for 24, with ample space for special events and coffee classes.

The move will allow Mighty Good to expand their menu of edibles. Additionally, it will give customers the opportunity to watch and learn about the roasting experience, as well as to buy beans directly from the roaster. And while Mighty Good is moving just a few blocks away from their old location, Myers expects to add to his customer base because of the new spot's proximity to the Ann Arbor Farmers Marke in Kerrytown.

Here are a few fun and interesting facts about what's arguably the world's favorite beverage:

  • After oil, coffee beans are considered the most heavily traded commodity in the world.

  • Even a tiny bit of oxygen in bags with one-way air valves can cause beans to go stale, so there is no way to "lock in" the freshness unless the bags are absolutely vacuum sealed.

  • Studies have suggested that the consumption of coffee is beneficial to health in some ways. Coffee appears to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and heart disease, among others.

Mighty Good Coffee can be found at the following retailers: Acme Mercantile, Busch's, Holiday Market – Royal Oak, Jefferson Market and Cakery, Knight's Market, Plum Market, Produce Station, Revive-Replenish, Sparrow Meat Market, Sprout House – Grosse Point, The New Chelsea Market, and Wine, Etc., in addition, of course, to the Mighty Good Coffee Café.

The Mighty Good Coffee Roasting Company provides fresh-roasted coffee to Ann Arbor residents (including via home delivery!) throughout the area - just one of the many perks of this growing local business.
