Uncommon Roasters

Uncommon Coffee Roasters (UCR) is a small batch specialty coffee roaster in West Michigan. Owned and operated by Guy Darienzo and Stephen Keye, UCR opened as a café by the name of Uncommon Grounds in Saugatuck in 1994. In 2000, UCR began roasting their own coffee. Due to popular demand, in 2010, UCR opened a wholesale business in the neighboring city of Douglas. As an NGLCC Certified LGBT Business Enterprise, UCR now provides services to more than 200 small businesses and large corporations throughout the Midwest. The company enjoys working closely with coffee producers to better understand their products, sourcing green coffee globally and traveling to the origin whenever possible. UCR takes pride in their diverse partnerships and strives to work with companies who share similar values. Their goal is to provide a variety of delicious and unique coffees and coffee products to as many people as they can while creating and maintaining sustainable partnerships with customers, coffee producers and everyone in between.
