If your morning cup of Joe doesn’t put a smile on your face, then maybe it’s time to try Happy Mug Coffee!
Located in nearby Edinboro, Happy Mug is a wholesale roaster that supplies coffee, tea, smoothies, syrups, and chai to a variety of businesses, offices, and community groups throughout Northwestern Pennsylvania.
They also ship unroasted beans (known as green coffee) to various small and home roasters around the country and will private label their products for interested sellers.
Happy Mug only buys organically grown beans from responsible sources. Because most coffee comes from third world countries, there continue to be ongoing problems with slave labor, corruption, and environmental abuses. “Responsible coffee” means the farmers are treated well and their farming practices respect the earth. One example is that only natural pesticides (if any) are used.
However, the co-ops that Happy Mug contract with are certified, transparent about their policies, and rated among the top 3% of the best tasting coffees in the world.
If you’re interested in joining the coffee club, call or stop in at the Happy Eggplant to sign up. Once a month, Pamela sends out an email and you can place a personal order when she orders for the store. She’ll notify you via email when the orders are ready for pickup.
Typically, the available selections remain the same and are listed below.
