Cole Coffee excels in a simple cup of coffee done right. Cole Coffee, formerly Royal Coffee Café and Retail Store was acquired by the café and store manager of the last 15 years. Although the name has changed, we still continue to offer the same fresh roasted beans and expert service that has made our coffee a daily staple for many in our community. Years of experience and devotion to the coffee business gave the new owner Michael Murphy the expertise to continue the Royal Coffee legacy.
Our beans are roasted fresh every 24 hours so we can offer our customers the utmost quality. Our premium coffee is the highest grade gourmet and always pure Arabica. We sell Fair Trade, Organic and Shade grown coffees. Check the out the Coffee of the Month at our store location and website for price specials
