Ugly Mug Coffee


Ugly Mug Coffee is my favorite coffee. It just makes me happy. Fair trade and the best tasting coffee ever, what a combo.

The roots of the Ugly Mug have grown into what is now the Ugly Mug Coffee Company (UMCC). Specializing in roasting our own Fair Trade Organic coffee, UMCC works to connect with people. In fact, the entire focus of the UMCC is to give back to the communities where we do business.

Five years ago, the UMCC began as a local coffee shop geared toward the Memphian college students. Word of mouth advertising gradually grew the coffee studio from a hidden secret to one of the best coffee shops in Memphis*. Our primary goal was to connect with people on a level that gives people a sense of respect and worth.

Coffee is the second highest traded commodity worldwide behind petroleum products, accounting for $60 billion total sales in 2001. We found that growers received only 10% of the overall sales. The wide disparity prevents most coffee farmers from earning a fair price for their coffee.
