Lights, action, camera! Bluffton has a new award-winning coffee shop! The Grind Coffee Roasters. Originally a roasting operation, The Grind Coffee Roaster has become a premier coffee shop. The Grind won the 2019 Hospitality Golden Oyster Award from the Bluffton Chamber in April. Congrats to owner Ian Duncan and his rocking team!
Located in Bluffton, South Carolina, The Grind Coffee Roasters is a wholesale and retail specialty roaster and coffee house. Their goal is to make you successful at home and at work. That’s why their motto is “Our Bean, Your Coffee”. To them, this means starting your day with the craft roasted single origin, custom blends and specialty coffees that best suit your tastes. It also means they provide freshly ground or whole bean coffee by the bag, K-cups and Nespresso pods on site. But the most exciting thing they do is put your name, logo, monogram, picture or brand on any of their products.
The Grind Coffee Roasters was founded on May 16, 2016, by owner and head roaster Ian Duncan. Originally from Kansas, he moved to Bluffton after receiving a formal education in landscape design and maintenance. After working for The Greenery for some time, he began work at another local coffee shop, where he developed his love for the craft of coffee making, and subsequently started his own business with his own vision.
The Grind Coffee Roasters began in a small, historic carriage house off of Simmonsville Road, near the corner of Highway 278, in Bluffton, South Carolina. At first, the focus was solely on the roasting operation, but the demand quickly grew for The Grind coffee by the cup, and thus, a coffee bar was installed in February 2018.
The business grew rapidly and it was soon time to expand. Renovations on the current Bluffton store began in September 2018 and concluded in January 2019, allowing the team to relocate from its humble 350 square foot space to a bigger and better 2,200 square foot space in Sheridan Park, where we are primarily operating today.
The Grind Coffee Roasters is currently working to open a new roast shop in Mount Dora, Florida. Stop by, enjoy a cup of happiness and enjoy the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
