The coffee roasting company focused on donating to good causes officially opened a tasting room and espresso bar last month. To celebrate, Greater Goods Coffee Roasters is throwing an open house Saturday that will give visitors a taste of the new space.
At 160 McGregor Ln. in Dripping Springs, the roastery now serves up coffee and tea drinks, as well as a small menu of pastries and bags of the Greater Goods Coffee varieties. This weekend, the tasting room will have live music from the Hot Texas Swing Band and brunch items from Chiawalla, Batch Craft Beer and Kolaches, and Skull & Cakebones during the 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. open house.
Make sure to register for the free event, if you’re interested in attending, so that the Greater Goods Coffee team knows how many people to expect.
Greater Goods Coffee was founded last year by Trey Cobb and Khanh Trang, who double as partners in business and life and have big philanthropic goals for their coffee company.
They donate a portion of the proceeds from each bag sold to one of one of four area nonprofits: Austin Pets Alive, the Autism Society of Central Texas, the Central Texas Food Bank and the Boys & Girls Club of Austin. Each of the bags are color-coded so that coffee drinkers know exactly which cause they are supporting with the purchase of the beans.
Plus, Cobb and Trang make sure to responsibly source the beans from places like Ethiopia, Sumatra and Papua New Guinea, which is no easy task: Less than 2 percent of all the coffee grown worldwide meets Greater Goods Coffee’s speciality-grade requirements, according to the company.
Besides the Saturday open house, you can get your morning, afternoon and evening coffee fixes most days of the week at Greater Goods Coffee Roasters. It’s open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
