ANN ARBOR, Mich. – It’s National Coffee Day!

Celebrate coffee while supporting local by stopping at one of these Ann Arbor businesses to pick up a cup of joe, a fancy latte, or buy a bag of beans.

Here are four places where you can pick up some beans this week:

19 Drips Coffee and Tea

Family-owned-and-operated, the father-son duo that created 19 Drips have used their connections to bring green Ethiopian coffee beans to their Ann Arbor third wave cafe. In 2019, they told us that they use a Detroit-based roaster, another father-son duo, for all of their roasting needs.

The Ann Arbor westside cafe has reduced capacity for in-house coffee consumption, but 19 Drips offers curbside pick up and delivery services. Order coffee beans by calling the cafe.

Feeling over-caffeinated? Try the cafe’s Adeni tea paired with a Honeycomb pastry.

Current Cafe Hours: 8 a.m - 5 p.m., daily

Address: 2263 W. Liberty St.


Iconic in the Ann Arbor coffee scene, RoosRoast has been slinging coffee, roasting beans and keeping coffee drinkers caffeinated for years. Learn the stories behind why all RoosRoast roasts have fun names while ordering bags of beans, Roos merch and coffee paraphernalia online.

Pick up a cup of Lobster Butter Love (no, there aren’t any lobsters or butter in it) or cold brew at the Rosewood location take out window.

Current Cafe Hours: Rosewood: 8 a.m - 4 p.m every day; Liberty is closed

Address: 1155 Rosewood St., Ste B
