What is better than the first sip of a coffee or tea from a local coffee shop? Honestly, not much. We carry 4 local coffee brands in our shops so that our customers always have the option to have freshly brewed coffee in the comfort of their own homes. To show our appreciation, we want to shout out our coffee makers in hopes that you will support local and stop in for a cup of joe.

The love, Pittsburgh blend of Black Forge Coffee.
Located right in the neighborhood of Mt. Washington, I&I Coffee is close to home for us. Maker, Patrick S. Zulick, roasts small batches of coffee right in his home. He needed a side-hustle and his love for coffee led him to begin roasting beans. All information regarding I&I Coffee can be found in our blog post: Maker We Love: I&I Coffee.
