Although these chain coffee shops are great places to go, as well as well known by most people, there are coffee shops one can only find in Ogden.

Located at 3525 Grant Ave, Hub City Coffee isn’t an everyday coffee shop, according to Holly Hill, co-owner and manager.

“Our shop is unique because 17% of every cup goes to support community development in Ethiopia,” Hill said. “Also, 100% of the tips we get on Sundays are donated to local non-profit organizations. Aside from coffee, community is our main focus.”

Just down the street, you can find Wasatch Roasting Company at 2436 Grant Ave. Jake Love, the manager at Wasatch Roasting Co., said many of their brews just as local as they are wordly.

“We roast all of our coffee in house, and we get it from all around the world,” said Jake Love, the manager at Wasatch Roasting Co. “We have 17 origins including Indonesia, Africa, and places in South America.”

Wasatch Roasting Co. also has art for sale hanging around their shop. Love said their shop acts as a gallery, and all profits go straight to the artists.
