More than just "coffee"
Exceptional coffee sourced directly from small scale farmers, roasted daily in Traverse City Michigan. Higher Grounds provides organic, fair trade, sustainably sourced coffee while also contributing to many non-profit organizations.
People + planet + profit. Craft is important when it comes to coffee, and its possible to debate all day about processing methods or the best way to pull an espresso. But somewhere along the line it became clear to the crew at Higher Grounds that even the most talented, hard-working people can't focus on quality if they don't have access to basic human needs and rights, if they don't feel empowered. And that goes for everyone—from the farmers they work with to the staff they employ.
First coffee of its kind..
At the edge of the Ituri forest and a day’s walk from Virunga National Park’s snowcapped Rwenzori mountains, the 900 farmers of Kawa Kanzururu are collaborating in an economic model for peace and stability in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Virunga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is threatened by poaching, deforestation, and armed conflict. Choosing this limited coffee directly supports the Virunga Alliance, providing essential jobs, protecting biodiversity, and guarding critically endangered mountain gorillas.
Virunga National Park is home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, an endangered species. Rangers work tirelessly to protect the land and animals against poaching, illegal logging, and conflict. Their lives are in constant threat.
We are pretty much obsessed with quality and that shows in the coffee company we partnered with. An attentive and trained barista is a successful barista. We were trained directly by the certified baristas at Higher Grounds in Traverse City. We make sure our cafe workers are all trained using the same techniques so that we can ensure not only quality but also consistency.
Our espresso machine, lovingly named "Gloria". is always pulling Higher Grounds espresso -currently the Mayan Magic blend. Ask our staff about the daily coffee being brewed. Each morning we grind the beans in house and brew a fresh pot. We like to keep the daily coffee in rotation to bring you great new seasonal blends!
We also offer retail sizes of coffee beans for your enjoyment at home; we will gladly grind the beans for you upon purchase!
Taste the difference
Simply the best tasting milk and dairy products are used in our shop which means we have Oberweis delivered to our door weekly. Superior ingredients, processing methods, and taste. The milk comes from humanely treated cows and is free of artificial growth hormones and antibiotics; it is gently pasteurized but never ultra pasteurized or homogenized.
The Oberweis Farmer's Pledge; it's a simple promise and the best way to ensure the highest level of care goes into each and every product labeled Oberweis. A family farm is just that, a farm where a single family owns, cultivates and passes down the land from one passionate generation to the next. This pride and commitment results in better tasting dairy. After all, family farms feed their own loved ones the same milk and dairy that's produced for their customers. We're honored to support this family farm tradition, and will always rely on them for the quality products we prepare for your family.
More than milk
Oberweis produces high quality dairy products including:
Milk (whole, 2%, fat free, choc)
Butter and cheese
Yogurt and sour cream
Lemonade, OJ, and fruit punch
*We use Oberweis tea and lemonade for our famous bubble drinks!
Old school delivery
It wasn't long ago when most American families enjoyed farm-fresh milk delivered straight to their homes. And if you happened to see the milkman while on his route, you were greeted with a warm smile and friendly "hello." In today's world, this hand delivered convenience has become a rarity, but one that Oberweis keeps alive with their home and store delivery service.
Oberweis delivers fresh products directly to our kitchen once a week. Currently, our delivery day is on Thursday but please feel free to call the shop to confirm before coming to pick up your weekly supply of Oberweis!
