The Coffee Grinder's Story

The most interesting thing I learned when I visited the Coffee Grinder was that once Bill Clinton was staying at Padaro Ln.! While he was staying there, he ordered "Razorback Blend" (a coffee) from the Coffee Grinder. (He is from Arkansas, and is a big fan of the University of Arkansas' sports teams, the Razorbacks.)

The Coffee Grinder not only sells great tea, coffee, cakes, and hot cocoa, but they sell great merchandise!

The reason that the Coffee Grinder is many peoples' favorite coffee bar is that their names are known there! Because when you know the customers' names, they feel like coming back every day.

The owners of the Coffee Grinder are Deanna Quintanilla, her mother Carol Powers, and her father.

The Coffee Grinder has been on another spot besides on Linden Ave. The Coffee Grinder used to be located on Santa Claus Ln. It has been on Linden Ave. for 14 years, but Deanna and her family purchased it only about a year and a half ago.
