Every year we push and grow, trying to Roast the best we can to honor the farmers and bring the best coffee to your cup! This year was no different. We picked some coffees that were more challenging to roast but we loved the farmers stories and wanted to showcase their hard work at Golden Bean.

We had 6 entries using 6 different coffees. Each in a separate category, hoping to give us a good idea of where we stand among hundreds of other roasters and over 1400 coffees entered this year!!

RESULTS: We metaled in 5/6 categories with a silver in organic espresso!!

Shout out to MATT MOORE, our head roaster! You did fantastic and I cannot wait to see where we go from here! (Also twice the entries from last year with the criteria cutting the number of awards in half it is quite the feat!!) SO PROUD!

A Note from Owner

Hello coffee people, my name is John and I LOVE what I do! My passion for coffee goes way back to when I was only "playing" coffee with friends. We would taste different varietals and the different nuances and profiles would blow me away. The dynamics that came with the coffee industry were fascinating to me and so I began to study it and experiment and before I knew it I had a small cafe taking up the garage. It was then that my wife so kindly encouraged me to "get the equipment out of the garage" and share what you do. So my little brother Kevin and I quit our jobs and he helped me to start Mountain Grounds. For the first year it was Kevin with his wife, my wife and I working endlessly to make a go of it. I have NEVER worked harder for anything in my life but I have never found more joy in anything else i have done. I love working with people, building into my Baristas and creating a community where people from all walks can come together and have a place to feel at home while enjoying an amazing coffee experience.

I say all of this to say that I can't contain the joy and want to share it with you! I want to help you by taking the lessons I have learned the hard way and help you navigate the map of starting your own journey. Specialty coffee is about community and culture not about competition. With that said, do I strive to be the best? The answer is yes, because my staff, customers and all those whose hands go into bringing coffee to the cup deserve the best.

We heard about Mountain Grounds from across the country. After meeting John it was clear that he was passionate and very knowledgeable about good coffee and the coffee business. He helped us from start to... well, in business its never finished so he is still supporting us and helping us when we need it. His training on coffee and advice on all things from money management to handling staff gave our business the start it needed to be successful. We look forward to our continued relationship with John and Mountain Grounds as we grow. We are blessed to have found the best coffee out there to serve at Mugshots and have the knowledge to do it justice.


We love coffee and it was important to us that we offer our customers the best. John taught us things about coffee that we didn't even know we needed to know. He was patient and passionate about helping us be the best we can be. We proudly serve Mountain Grounds coffee and we have the confidence that each cup that goes out is excellent and represents our business well thanks to the quality coffee and the training we received.
