About Deadly Grounds Coffee

Deadly Grounds Coffee  is the ONLY hearse based coffee company in America. Working in television and film production for over 20 years – coffee was a necessity in keeping me going during the long hours of work. But it was always more than just a beverage. Any coffee break with a close friend or co-worker is an opportunity to catch up on life, share some laughs, or work out life’s problems. Everyone has at least one good coffee buddy. Whether it’s with the mornings first brew, a quick mid-day drive thru run, or after dinner shared with someone special – it’s amazing all that could get worked out over a steaming cup o’ Joe.

Since coffee time is such an enjoyable break in the midst of our hectic day it soon became a quest to find the “perfect cup”. While there’s never a shortage of coffee places, not all java brings the magic. Rare is the coffee experience that’s truly to die for. In the search for coffee nirvana I thought it would be easier to just make my own. While it turned out not to be easier it sure as hell is a lot of fun. I found a talented local roaster that believed in quality over quantity and with a name that no one could forget – Deadly Grounds Coffee was born. Since the goal was to make coffee to die for – choosing a hearse as our company car seemed like the right choice. It’s become the perfect ambassador on our travels, a great mobile coffee cart that can grind & brew coffee at 55mph, and people tend to get out of its way.

Every Deadly Grounds Coffee roast is made from 100% Arabica beans. As we grow we’ll be offering more blends, single origin and organic coffees. It’s gourmet coffee without fancy titles, or names. We try not to take ourselves too seriously but we do take the coffee itself deadly serious. It’s coffee for the rest of us. Enjoy every cup.
