At Happy Cup Coffee Company, the goal is to pair great coffee with a great cause. Each cafe (555 NE Couch St. + 3494 N. Williams Ave.) and the roastery provide sustainable employment opportunities for people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities — they lend a helping hand in every aspect of the business, from bagging, labeling, and weighing the coffee to developing the creative blend names.
Hear it from them:
- “They always ask, ‘Where do you work?’ and I say Happy Cup and I hope to see you there.” - Andrea
- “It’s the best smell in the world.” - Robert
- “We make it, it’s the best coffee in the world.” - Mike
- “I once tried to stay up all night to see where the sun went and then it dawned on me.” - Colt
One of our favorite drinks is the refreshing Watermelon Summer, made with cold-pressed watermelon juice, strawberry nectar, and topped with matcha from Steven Smith Teamaker. Our apologies if you end up humming a certain overused TikTok song.
