Mauch Chunk Coffee Scholarship
Education is a powerful catalyst for change, and we're excited to support the next generation of leaders, innovators, and changemakers. That's why we're proud to announce our annual scholarship program, designed to provide financial assistance to students in their pursuit of higher education.
The Mauch Chunk Coffee Scholarship is open to full-time undergraduate students enrolled in any accredited academic or trade program in the United States. Complete two short essay questions by July 15, 2024 to apply.
Dedicated to more than just the perfect roast, we actively work to make a positive impact in our wider community in various ways. One example is our partnership with 1% for the Planet, through which we give 1% of our gross annual sales to environmental nonprofits.
We're passionate about coffee and the conversations that happen over it. The late nights, early mornings, and moments in between. Coffee is about community; it’s about adventure; it’s about embarking on an engaging sensory experience that satisfies your body and mind.

Since 2013, we have been roasting specialty coffee in small batches at our family-owned roastery in the foothills of Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains.
Each of our coffees is the result of a meticulous and conscientious journey. Sourced from the finest smallholder farms and cooperatives, our exclusive offerings possess distinctive, engaging characteristics, drawn out through our small batch roasting process.
Our coffee philosophy is tied together with our emphasis on sustainable, ethical sourcing and general business practices. We approach this holistically and recognize our role in our local and global communities.
