What Is Specialty Coffee?

Specialty coffee is a term for the highest grade of coffee available, typically relating to the entire supply chain, using single origin or single estate coffee.

What Is Single Origin Coffee?

The term single origin is a coffee category that focuses on a specific and distinct area or region where the coffee is grown. Coffee labeled as single-origin can be traced to a single farm, farmer, producer, crop, or region in one country.

Start your own coffee shop adventure

Founded in 1998 as a traditional coffee shop in Granville, Ohio, the business model has evolved from three coffee shops, a coffee truck, and two kiosk coffee shops into a licensed partnership concept.

The Little Coffee Company is inviting veterans, people of disability, and individuals with high functioning autism (HFA), as well as other entrepreneurs to get in on the ground floor of this exciting new opportunity in the $47 billion U.S. coffee market as we ramp up for a rapid nationwide expansion.

“There has never been a more exciting time to open a specialty coffee shop. I’ve spent the last 25 years proving that our business model could be successful over the long-term before launching our license partnership effort. With adults drinking more coffee in the U.S. than ever before, the opportunity for success is even greater. However, what really sets the Little Coffee Company apart is we specifically focus on putting veterans, people of disability, and individuals with high functioning autism (HFA) into their own business.”
