The Grind is located in the heart of downtown Girdwood, Alaska.

Here we roast the freshest coffee in our small batch roaster. Our coffee is organic and traded fairly, but we don't waist our time or your money with stickers on the bag to prove it to you. Instead we offer you to challenge what you are told. Question your products! Our distributor for green coffee is Royal Coffee in California. The beans are hand picked in many countries ranging from Kenya to Colombia and brought all the way here to our beautiful glacier valley.

Our beans are available to purchase in whole bean bags: 8 oz, 1 lb., 2 lb., and 5 lb.

If you have a business you would like to promote or wish to have a customized blend, let us know. We would be happy to cook a specific roast that you could sell at your store. And when anyone asks "Whose coffee do you use?" your answer could be your own. We will put your logo on the bags and even help with the design. You pick the name. You pick the blend. We'll show you how.

We also offer a selection of snacks and other refreshments in our cozy little store.

Aside from our food and drink menu, our shop has novelties, toys, greeting cards and an array of knick knacks to pass the time.

The internet is fast and free as is our service.

Come check us out when coming down the Turnagain Arm as we are open year round.

Have Fun! Be Safe! Hope to see you soon!
