MERCHANT COFFEE CO.
is your space
Hi, and welcome to our space. We are so thankful that you've found us or maybe we found you. Either way we are excited about it!
Merchant Coffee Company is located in the heart of downtown Ambridge, Pa right on the "main drag", Merchant Street. When we first began to work on the demolition and building process in September of 2019 we had an entire space to renovate. Historically the building that we are located in has had many different businesses occupy the space. Some of these include a car dealership, a cheese stick factory, duck bowling lanes and a beauty salon equipment store. After taking down two drop ceilings, a plaster ceiling, a stage, many walls and all of the surprises, we had a lot of space to fill. Thanks to the services of some wonderful local professionals we began to build. Almost one year later we're opening our doors. Come check us us out and become a part of our space.
While we don't have our comfy couch or our oversized meeting table just yet we hope that the current circumstances of COVID-19 will someday change and abiding in all safety procedures we will be able to get our space to where we want it to be. In the meantime, you will find baristas who are happy to see you and a comfortable space to grab a quick bite, meet a friend, or get some work done. Stop by and see what's going on!
is your gain
Merchant Coffee Company seeks to provide a clean and welcoming environment for all people. Community is our passion, coffee is our craft and we do it all with care. It's pretty simple and we like to keep it that way. Here at MCCo we strive to create an atmosphere where people can connect with each other as well as themselves and the world around them while having a solid cup of coffee in hand.
Our main source of beans are local and from our absolute favorite roaster, Commonplace Coffee. Commonplace is a sustainable and fair trade company, house and roaster that cares deeply about the farm and farmers where they source their beans as well as each and every customer. They have become great friends of ours and with seven locations spread throughout the greater Pittsburgh area we suggest you check them out sometime. ;-)
Our identity will be defined by the way we respect and care for our customers and employees, the dedication to learning how to always prepare a great cup of coffee or espresso and being a hub within the community for organic personal and communal growth. With our hearts set on community, coffee, craft, care and creativity we welcome you to join us at any point in our journey!
ABOUT THE OWNERS
in a bunch of words
Merchant Coffee Company is a small business that was birthed from three partners. One with a passion for people and coffee and the other two existing partners in a local thriving bar/restaurant. With a love for craft beer, craft bites and craft coffee the three partners set out to create a space and fill a void within the community. Wanting to share with the community the love for craft coffee as well as creating a simple and clean space for customers, MCCo was set into motion.
Just like beer, coffee is quickly becoming a unique craft where more and more people are seeking out flavor profiles, textures, and styles. Two different cups of coffee could be compared to the difference between a Miller Lite and Bell's Two Hearted. Not all of one thing is usually created equally. This being said the three partners are excited to bring in and feature beans from roasters across the States. With the staple coffee for the shop being Commonplace Coffee one will also find featured roasts from breweries who are now roasting including Hoof Hearted and Modern Times. After all it's beer and coffee that are often a commonality between all humans!
