Our Philosophy

Good coffee satisfies the soul and the senses. Founders David Myers and Jim Levinsohn, friends for over 20 years, founded Mighty Good Coffee combining what they love most: family traditions; artisanal craft processes; building local community; and fantastic coffee. We start with beans from select farms, mills, and co-ops (yes, we visit!), roast in small batches, and package quickly to preserve freshness. We pour our passion into every roast, every bag, every day. We think you’ll agree— it’s Mighty Good!

Community Involvement

We believe that being involved in our community is one of the best ways to build community. Over the years, we’ve been involved in a variety of projects, events and other local grass roots causes intent on keeping the local flavor or Ann Arbor strong. Our affiliations include or have included The Ann Arbor Art Center, The Ozone House, Legacy Land Conservancy, Michigan Public Radio, Performance Network, Warm the Children, and countless donations to school groups and other non-profit groups. We accept requests for donations and sponsorships at the cafe or by e-mail: sales (at) mightygoodcoffee (dot) com.


Mission & Values

Each cup of Mighty Good Coffee is prepared with care and deep respect for the entire coffee supply chain. We continually invest in the great relationships we have come to enjoy with a variety of farmers, mills, and importers, by visiting them, engaging with them at conferences, and sharing teaching and training experiences at SCAA, Barista Guild, and other professionally sponsored venues. Once the precious green bean cargo arrives at our roastery, we take our time to craft and refine a roasting profile unique to each coffee and blend, in order to bring you their very best flavor. 

The Mighty Good staff will joyfully engage you in lively conversation regarding any aspect of coffee growing, harvesting, and production you are interested in - at whatever level of depth delights you. At each of our cafes, we are committed to providing a warm and accessible environment for your coffee enjoyment. At Mighty Good Coffee,
