A Little About

What We Do
Why We Do It
Les Cheneaux Coffee Roasters is a small-batch coffee roasting and tea company nestled in the heart of the beautiful Les Cheneaux Islands area of Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula. Like many great American brands, we began in a garage with not much more than a leap of faith. Born from passion, Les Cheneaux Coffee Roasters is owned and operated by Jen and David Gough.
Always freshly roasted to provide our customers with the highest quality coffee experience possible.
A Family Business
We strive to provide our customers with the highest quality, hand crafted single origin, specialty blend, and award winning estate coffees and teas. Our focus remains simple: to ethically source and provide the highest quality coffees and teas that define the experience of our customers. We never stop challenging ourselves to produce coffee and tea that is distinct, while constantly seeking improvement in all that we do.
We are proud to own and operate a socially responsible small business. Many of our coffees and teas are USDA Organic and Fair Trade International certified. When available, we purchase our coffee beans from Women Producer programs to combat the gender inequities in the coffee trade. We believe that education is the foundation of positive social change. Through our partnership with the International Rescue Committee, 10% of annual wholesale and retail tea sales are directed to education programs. Each pouch of Retea provides up to 10 hours of education for a refugee child.
