Located at the corner of Union and Briargate Blvd, we are a neighborhood coffee shop that has been in the community for over 15 years. Our owner, Jade Wilson, has had the dream of owning a coffee shop for most of her life. If you've been here in the afternoon, chances are that you've had the pleasure of chatting with her. We are often referred to as the Cheers of coffee shops. If you don't know someone when you come in, you'll know someone before you leave.

- Another month gone by and now for September - Don Shive is the customer of the month. Don has been frequenting the coffee shop since its inception. Don oversees many things at the coffee shop - like watering the plants, sweeping the walk, purchasing umbrellas for the patio tables, etc. That Don is one heck of a guy!

Thanks to Ms Jade Wilson, I have been able to sell my photocards, magnets and barrettes in her coffee shop. Thank you very much Jade. I made another $8 on my cards today! Feeling blessed.

Marissa Vigil will be leaving Special Grounds in a week or so. She will be an English Teacher for Mitchell High School. That is so awesome Marissa! You go girl! A new barista is being trained to take her spot.

Unbelievable - but December 16th will mark the 9th anniversary of Special Grounds Coffee Shop (previously Purple Mountain Coffee) being in ownership of Ms. Jade Rose Wilson. We would like to celebrate this event with an open house on December 14th (Sunday). All those in favor press "LIKE!"
