I thought about putting this in the off-topic area since it's literally called the GR Coffee House, but you know, there's enough movement in GR's coffee scene to warrant it's own thread (i think).

I'll start the thread with post about two new coffee happenings.  https://mix957gr.com/theres-two-new-places-to-grab-coffee-in-grand-rapids/  for Squibb and Sparrows.

Sparrows is a great addition to Kingmas on Plainfield and I really love the support they've shown local entrepreneur  Frankie Volkema as the world's youngest licensed Q grader https://dailycoffeenews.com/2020/07/29/worlds-youngest-q-grader-launches-youth-supportive-joven-coffee/

Also...

Social Misfits is going in the second floor of the Marriot Residence Inn: https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/06/waffles-cocktails-and-coffee-bar-coming-to-downtown-grand-rapids.html

Anyone know anything else going on?

 

Sad to hear about Ferris closings too :-(  https://grbj.com/news/beverages/ferris-coffee-shutters-two-grand-rapids-cafes/ 

...but they recently got some good press in Sprudge!  https://sprudge.com/coffee-design-ferris-coffee-co-in-grand-rapids-michigan-177148.html

We love profiling brand new, up-and-coming, and emerging coffee companies here at Sprudge. And at the same time, there's something irresistible about a legacy story—learning about a company in the coffee game who has been around for generations, especially if they're continuing to grow and innovate.

If you haven't tried Morning Ritual yet, it is pretty good. I feel like they focus more on unique drinks versus just coffee, but some of their drinks are pretty great. 

....dayum, and I didn't even see that Corridor Coffee has changed over!!!  https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/06/local-eats-morning-ritual-a-grand-rapids-botanical-coffee-bar-offers-unique-floral-herbal-flavors.html

Ok, last post for now....Alex and Rosie are great people.  Alex invited me for a tour and cupping at their shop in Grandville and I've been a loyal customer ever since.  I'm so glad they made it through the pandemic.

I didn't know this but I recently found out that Sparrows is owned by Schuil Coffee now (like a licensing deal).

I'm all for non-alcoholic options.  With the push for a quasi all ages dry bar https://www.woodtv.com/news/grand-rapids/artist-working-to-open-grand-rapids-first-lgbtq-dry-bar/ - we need more options.   I would love love love if breweries would keep a few craft NA beers behind the bar for us former beer drinkers who still love going to breweries.
