MEET THE CREW
We named our specialty coffee company “Merge” because we are two families from different cultures and backgrounds that have combined our talents and gifts to build something bigger than ourselves. What started as friends having fun has blossomed into a passion for sourcing coffees from around the world and expertly roasting them in right here in Harrisonburg, VA.
We purchased a tiny little roaster and dove headlong into learning the craft. After A year and a half we started selling online and eventually opened our cafe in Harrisonburg, VA. What started as friends having fun has blossomed into a passion for producing the finest roasts of coffees from around the world and a movement to educate people on how to get the best out of there coffee by growing together with them. Here are just a few things that we believe in at our core.
We are a member of the SCA (Specialty Coffee Association), we meticulously & sustainably source our beans and only purchase coffee at fair pricing. Read more about our coffee ethics here.
Community is in our DNA and we believe in integrating it at all levels of our business. At our cafe we have a 25 ft. shelving unit that displays local art and we also co-host a story table where the community can talk and listen to each other in an agenda free environment.
We realize that we have been blessed to have this platform and aim to help those who are less fortunate. Every 7 bags of coffee sold provides water for a single person for life.
