When our founder Chris DeMarse started roasting small-batch coffee in his garage in 2012, he honed his craft with conviction and shared his product among friends. He noticed that, at the time, micro-roasted coffee wasn’t very accessible locally. It wasn’t even part of the local conversation. Naturally this sparked his mission to serve specialty coffee in Marion, Indiana.
Craft coffee. Small-town community. Chris knew he had a sacred blend, one that reminded him of the monastic in a way. So when the shop opened in the fall of 2013, naming it The Abbey Coffee Co. seemed fitting.
And we’ve been intentional in our pursuit of the sacred blend since day one in that garage.
Roastmaster Levi McClish honors our roots by roasting our coffee in small batches, which is both served locally and sent coast-to-coast. We roast, cup, and brew all our coffee out in the café itself – no secret laboratories or underground roasting rooms. This is a beautiful fruit – why hide it? Our mission is still focused on making great coffee accessible, right here in Grant County. Because great coffee isn’t meant to be exclusive to the big cities or the privileged. Great coffee is meant to be shared.
