Our Story

We are a family of hard-working people committed to bringing the freshest coffee possible to you. Brothers and business partners, we started Five Lakes in our home town of Sturgis, MI. As Fair Trade Certified and Rainforest Alliance partners, we support responsibly sourced coffee from around the globe. We believe in keeping things simple, always doing the right thing and that customers are our most important asset. We still do all of our roasting in small batches in our hometown of Sturgis, Michigan. We enjoy drinking our freshly roasted coffee every day and hope you do too!

Thank you,

Paul and Jared Smith, brothers and co-owners of Five Lakes Coffee
