Good Coffee for a Good City

Good Coffee?

Under the generous tutelage of Stone Creek Coffee, we are bringing decades of coffee roasting expertise to every bag. We are able to offer responsibly-sourced beans and uniquely-crafted roasts. Good is a bit of an understatement.

Good City?

What makes a city "good"? A hunch: more than a lakefront and festivals. A city flourishes when its inhabitants have the opportunity to work for the prosperity of their city and are rewarded for their efforts.

Beyond this economic component, a city is "good" when its inhabitants intend for the good of its inhabitants in a wide-ranging, non-discriminatory kind of way. A "good city" mindset might be—let me include whoever is missing out. MKEing Coffee wants to embody this mindset by bringing jobs and a quality product to the city.

Who profits? 

A recent focus has been on developing the workforce and entrepreneurs of the future by assisting high school and some college students in the Milwaukee area to learn by doing!

By drinking our coffee, you are helping to provide meaningful work experience and the job title of "Coffee Expert." You are investing in developing an employee who might someday bag your order, answer your questions, or help you figure out why the dang website is glitching.

By drinking our coffee, you are playing a role in reMKEing Milwaukee. You are voting, advocating, serving, sharing. In our humble opinion, this sounds like no ordinary cup of tea.


Meet the Founders

Meet Chad (on the right) and Jarod (on the left). They met while living on the same block in Milwaukee's Sherman Park neighborhood. They met, actually—by walking out their front doors and seeing each other.  Beyond being neighbors, Chad and Jarod were both already business owners and contributing to efforts to address issues in their urban, central city community through job creation, service and generosity.
They came together around the idea that the MKEing of Good Coffee (and the jobs, impact and collaboration that come along with it) can lead to the MKEing of a Good City!
