Make Our Place Your Gathering Grounds
Our CoffeeGGC doesn’t just love coffee – we love good coffee. For that reason we only sell the best. We are currently roasting our own in-house, right here in downtown Klamath Falls, Oregon.
Not only do we try to serve the best grind possible but we use premium brewing techniques which can add lots of body and complexity to the coffee that standard drip can’t match.
Although our standard brew is made in a commercial drip machine we offer many premium brew options including Chemex brewed coffee, single cup pour-over, Aeropress coffee, french press brews, and traditional espresso and espresso based drinks.
We know you’ll love it.
